FC Barcelona and Nike Soccer revealed today their bold away uniform for the upcoming 2016/17 season. The new kit celebrates Barça heritage by blending their traditional blue and red colors.
Barcelona new away kit features the latest Nike innovation, Vapor Aeroswift technology, to enhance player’s performance while also creating a modern look. Armor-like ventilation panels are placed on the front of the shirt, keeping players cool and dry under all circumstances.
The darker sleeves are knitted, designed to hug the player’s arms to accentuate their athletic body and add comfort. The club’s name is knitted to the back of the neck, while the words “Un Crit” and “Valen” (from the club’s official anthem) are placed on the inside of the cuffs. A Senyera on the top back symbolizes the club’s Catalan heritage and pride.
Vivid pink details adorn the shirt, appearing around the V-cut neck, Nike Swoosh and the lateral stripes, which connect with the ones on the shorts to create a dynamic look by revealing an inner purple layer during movement.
Beko sponsor logo is featured in white on the left sleeve and Unicef is painted in pink at the bottom of the back. The uniform is completed by pink socks with a linear graphic on the back to accentuate speed.
“The fusion of the traditional red and blue makes this shirt fresh and striking, but at the same time connected with our history,” says club captain Andres Iniesta. “In addition, thanks to the new technology we feel much more agile and fast.”
