Real Madrid 2015/2016 Jersey Font

The kits of Real Madrid CF for the 2015/2016 season is provided by Adidas. Real Madrid plays in the Spanish La Liga and is using a new font for the 2015/16 season.

The Real Madrid font contains uppercase letters, numbers, some symbols and accented letters or diacritics. The characters in the font are (shown here in Verdana):

The numbers were created by shifting a copy of the character. This was done twice. The first copy is solid and the second copy is outline. A very thin outline was used on the first copy and is only shown where the first copy overlaps the original character. This thin outline causes the numbers in the font not to render as intended in smaller point sizes. The numbers should be used at 450 points or higher at 72 ppi for the thin outline to render as designed. Using the font in higher resolutions will greatly improve the rendering of the numbers and enable the use of numbers at smaller point sizes. The image below shows the number 1 in different point sizes at 72 pixels per inch. Also, the numbers will likely not render well in non-graphics applications, like Microsoft Word. Note that this issue is only present on the numbers and not on the letters and other characters in the font.

A preview/demo font with very limited glyph set is available for download to give you a chance to see if the font serves your needs. The instructions on how to get the full/complete font is indicated in the copyright field of the preview font and in a text file included in the preview font download pack.

Download the preview font here or here.
