The first team will be donning the new crimson away strip for the first time in the opening game of the preseason
It is already available at all official FC Barcelona stores and via nike.com/fcb
This Saturday at the Nuevo Colombino in Huelva, there will be plenty of new things to look out for. The first game of the preseason will also be the first with Luis Enrique as manager, and several players will also be making their first team debuts. But the game in Andalusia will also mark the first appearance in a match of Barça’s new crimson away kit, after it was unveiled on July 15.
Already on sale
The brand new shirt is already available at all official club stores (FCBotiga) and also online from nike.com/fcb. And the new design is clearly a huge hit with the fans. Since it went on sale this week, it seems to be selling as well as the more traditional first strip.
GET THE AWAY SHIRT
The shirt sports a crew neck collar and is entirely bright crimson except for the deep cuffs, which represent the traditional ‘blaugrana’ colours with red on the front and blue on the back. The yellow and red Catalan flag is represented on the back of the collar inside the neck, and this detail is repeated on the back of the collar, but with ‘Barca’ in blue and the club’s unique club font below it. Inside the back of the neck there’s a blue pennant tab with the club motto ‘Mes que un club’ (More than a club) and the foundation year of 1899.
The new away shorts are also bright crimson with a thin blue stripe along each side, while the new away socks are bright crimson with a wide tonal stripe on the back.
