FC Barcelona unveiled its latest third kit design by Nike, which evolves the club’s famous blau, instantly identifiable in the traditional home colours, into an electric shade of the blue.
A black ombré graphic accentuates the blue, blending from the cuffs of the short and shirt. During night games, this effect serves to accentuate the players’ physical presence underneath the floodlights. Black socks, with dark grey chevrons on the calf, further this powerful framing of the body, with socks in the kit’s bold blue also available in case of colour clashes.
Inside the lightweight crafted collar is FC Barcelona’s renowned motto “Més Que Un Club” (“More Than A Club”) – also imprinted in large letters on the seats at the Camp Nou. The Senyera, the Catalan flag, sits on the right sleeve and signals FC Barcelona’s pride in and deep connection to the region.
Names and numbers are in a unique typeface for FC Barcelona, informed by the sentinel chimneys of Antoni Gaudí’s modernist masterpiece La Pedrera, an architectural icon synonymous with Barcelona.
