Nike and the Spanish club Barcelona jointly announced the team’s new third jersey for the 2021-22 season. The design of the new jersey embodies the inspiration of Barcelona’s talented young artists and ingeniously reinterprets Barcelona’s traditional red and blue stripes.
They deconstructed Barcelona’s characteristic streetscape elements and incorporated them into this jersey to highlight the close connection between the club and the city.In addition to this innovation, another special feature of the new jersey is that it will be used as an exclusive jersey for the Barcelona men’s and women’s teams in the Champions League.
The Barcelona men’s team will wear the new jersey for the first time on September 14 at Camp Nou for the first match of the Champions League group stage against Bayern München.
The new jersey retains the traditional vertical red and blue striped design and adds a number of very distinctive details, not only in neon tones, but also combining the characteristics of each of Barcelona’s five neighborhoods – Poble-sec, Poble Nou, Gràcia, Raval and Les Corts.Through the creative image interpretation of local young artists, the outlines of the most representative landmark buildings in each block are depicted on the jersey. Not only that, the design of the stripes also incorporates the scarves worn by fans on match days as an image element, paying tribute to the majority of Barcelona supporters.
