Nike and FC Barcelona today launched third kit for season 2019-20.
Throughout the 2019 season, FC Barcelona will play in teal green — just as it did back in 1996-97 when the club won two prestigious tournaments and Brazilian legend Ronaldo famously scored 47 goals.
This third kit, which is loaded with nostalgic nods to Barça pride, will be worn for the first time when the European campaign gets underway later this month.
The teal shade is stylishly set off by a retro V-neck collar, which features a thick Blaugrana trim, and sleeves with a dark blue trim.
Meanwhile, the club’s hallowed status at the heart of Catalonia is celebrated through an all-over, diamond-shaped jacquard pattern, inspired by Barcelona’s coat of arms.
“When you see this color, you think of Ronaldo, Guardiola, Stoichkov, Luis Enrique…so many great players” says Barça center-back Gerard Piqué. “It will be a pleasure to wear this kit and bring our fans joy with victories both at home and abroad.”
The club crest leaps from the chest thanks to an elevated trim, and the ’90s nostalgia is cranked up with the Nike Futura logo.
Teal shorts and socks complete the head-to-toe look, with the shorts boasting dark blue detailing and the socks topped with a Blaugrana trim.
“Given Barcelona’s incredible archive of kits, it was great fun merging their iconic ’90s identity with the modern Nike aesthetic,” says Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “The color itself conjures so many memories, while the collar and the jacquard pattern make this kit both nostalgic and highly original at the same time.”
The kit releases September 13.
