The new Nike designs for Barcelona are here. With these two bold jerseys, the Blaugranas will defend their La Liga title and try to recovery the European title in this forthcoming 2013/2014 season.
The new home jersey returns to the use of thinner stripes reminiscent of the 2009–2010 jersey, while the collar now features a V-neck style highlighted in yellow. The most modern aspect of this design will be on the sleeves, where Nike has incorporated thinly fading stripes that transition from blue to red.
This design will retain some of the characteristics seen in previous shirts of the Nike era. These include the Senyera, name given to the Catalan flag, now taking up the whole back of the collar, as well as the label inside featuring the club’s motto “Mes que un Club” (More than a Club).
Meanwhile, the away jersey will retain the stripes in a stunning combination of red and yellow, again inspired by the look of the Catalan flag. This design, a first in the club’s history, features a round collar in yellow with red trim, and the same fading style design for the sleeves. The new Qatar Airways sponsor logo will be featured in blue, same with the Nike logo, names and numbers.
