Barça to debut in senyera shirt in Munich

The Senyera shirt
The game against Bayern has been brought forward to 18.30 so as not to clash with the Women’s European Championship which will feature the German national team

FC Barcelona will make their 2013/14 debut in their new away kit which figures the Catalan flag – the Senyera. The game against Bayern Munich will be Barça’s first game of the pre-season, after the match in Gdansk last Saturday was postponed following the announcement of Tito Vilanova’s standing down.

Two seasons ago, when Barça also played a pre-season friendly in Munich, playing Bayern in the final of the Audi Cup, they again wore their away strip. This year’s new shirts have been a massive success amongst fans and have been selling really well during the first few weeks it has been on sale.

Game to kick off at 18.30

Kick off time for the game in Munich has been brought forward two hours to 18.30, with the German TV company covering the game also committed to the broadcast of the Women’s European Championship semi-final, which will feature the German national team. The change in kick off time was foreseen in the original deal to set up the game, because of the agreement with the German TV company with UEFA, should the German team reach this stage of the competition.
