Barcelona unveil new jersey ahead of next season

Barcelona have revealed their new home kit for the 2022-23 season.

The Nike manufactured kit takes its inspiration from the 1992 Olympics held in the city and it is being released with the tagline: ‘The Flame Lives On’.

The kit is the first to feature the club’s new sponsor Spotify.

The club released via its official website: “Its design evokes the spirit of that period of regeneration and redefinition, a time when Barcelona opened up to the world and the world opened up to Barcelona.

“30 years ago, the city took a huge leap forward into modernity by hosting the Olympic Games, but at the same time conserving its spirit and roots.

“As the present era is also one of such major changes to the first team squad, the club has decided to draw on and share that Olympic spirit at a time when its efforts are very much focused on the future.

“The design of home strip evokes the new light introduced to the city of Barcelona with the creation of new spaces and most especially new connections to the sea, an idea that is represented by the different coloured stripes on the shirt, where red alternates with two different shades of blue, one navy and the other lighter.

“The same navy blue also features on the collar, sleeves, shorts, and socks.”
