Barcelona have released their new kit ahead of the 2020/2021 season.
The Blaugrana took to Twitter to show their fans the new home jersey which was modelled by Lionel Messi, Asisat Oshoala, Gerard Pique and Luis Suarez.
The new kit was designed by Nike and it marks the return of Barca’s famed Blaugrana stripes, enclosed in a gold border, while the gold crew neck collar worn a decade ago also replaces the V-neck cut that has been used in recent seasons.
According to a statement by Barcelona:
“This season, the jersey is recovering its traditional vertical stripes, but is including gold as a distinctive element. The ‘Blaugrana’ stripes are bordered on each side by gold strips, which evoke the design of the Club crest that the team wore on their shirts throughout the 1920s.
“Another outstanding feature of the new design is the roundneck collar that also has a gold-coloured rim, while the Catalan ‘senyera’ flag appears on the back, just underneath. The full kit also includes blue shorts, with a vertical maroon stripe on the side, which also has a gold rim, and horizontally striped socks that imitate the shirt design.
“Once again, this season’s jersey is going on sale with the logo of Rakuten on the front and Beko on the left sleeve, Main partners of the Men’s team, and the logo of Stanley, Main partner of the women’s team.”
