FC Barcelona, current La Liga, Copa del Rey and UEFA Champions League title holders, will try to continue their successful run this season and add the FIFA Club World Cup to their shelves on December. For now, they’ll have to keep their minds focused on the Spanish league and the UCL, where they’ll face none other than AS Roma in their first game of the Group Stage. This will be the perfect time to debut their brand new third kit, revealed earlier today.
The Kit features a bold design that rethinks their famous blau into a lighter shade of blue to respect their tradition, but also innovating with new concepts. The most striking feature from the design is the black gradient design shown on the sleeves and shorts, a nod to European games being played at night. The kit is completed with black socks with blue logos and grey accents on the calves, but also having a mostly blue version in case of color clashes.
The club’s crest sits proudly one the chest, at the same height as Nike black logo and over Qatar Airways colored in white. The round collar is accompanied by a inner writing with the clubs motto – Més que un club (“More than a club”) – in the replica version, while the authentic jersey features a black stripe. A tag with the Senyera, the Catalan flag, appears on the right sleeve as symbol of FC Barcelona’s pride and identity by representing their region on the top level of world soccer.
Nike’s latest technological innovations deliver maximum comfort for elite players such as Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr. and Luis Suárez. Dri-FIT fabric combines laser-cut ventilation holes strategically placed in key areas with mesh panels on the front and back of the jersey to increase air flow and help regulate player’s body temperature and keep them dry.
