One of their away kits features a rainbow-coloured sash - based on the Pride flag which is commonly used to represent equality and support LGBT rights.

Another of their three new kits features a pink sash in support of breast cancer charities.

Money from both kits will go towards charities and groups related to these causes.

They are one of Spain's best-known left-wing clubs, and their supporters are world famous.


And the collective rainbow flag represents that the club supports Pride and LGBT issues.


And €7 of every shirt purchased will be donated equally across charities associated with the seven causes.
