Released ahead of the UEFA Champions League kicking off next week, Barca will have a snazzy new look with the red/orange kits paying homage to their home city.
Per a statement on their website, Barca revealed the inspiration behind the jersey from Nike.
“A dynamic sash design inspired by one of the Catalan city’s most famous streets, the Avinguda Diagonal, cutting an angular swathe from the left shoulder to right hem. The two-tone shirt, with the darker red of the sash and its surrounding graphic gradually giving way to a paler pink shade completes the set of new strips for the new season, which ooze Barça DNA and are inspired by the city where the club is based.
“The 10 vertical stripes on the home kit celebrate the 10 principal districts of the city, while the volt yellow away kit evokes memories of a famous 2005-06 campaign and underlines the club’s adventurous spirit. With a pattern based on an aerial view of Barcelona’s famous Eixample district and its blocks, the third strip gives an extra special connection back to the city’s landscape.”
Take a look at the images below as Lionel Messi and Co. will be wearing these beauties on the road.
They could even be wearing these shirts in Miami on Jan. 26, 2019 against Girona if plans for a Stateside La Liga game get the thumbs up.
