Barcelona 2015/16 Home & Away Kits

Nike swap the club’s famed blue and red stripes for a hooped look, inspired by the Blaugrana flags seen on match days at Camp Nou.

FC Barcelona will play in a bold new home kit from Nike next season. The club’s famed blue and deep red stripes will be horizontal, inspired in the stripes on the Blaugrana flags held aloft on match days at Camp Nou. Horizontal stripes have previously been worn by FCB basketball, rugby and athletics teams, but this is the first time in the club’s long and rich history that the football team will don horizontal stripes.

The new kits pay tribute to the symbols of FC Barcelona’s heritage and identity. The instantly recognisable blue and deep red of the Blaugrana and the Senyera, in Catalonia’s proud golden yellow and red, are synonymous with both the club and the city.

Some description

The Senyera is embedded into the collar in a golden yellow trim with four thin red stripes around the outside of the shirt’s streamlined and modern v-neck. The inside of the collar features the club’s renowned motto, “Més Que Un Club”. The iconic Senyera flag, so central to the culture of the city and the club, infuses the new away kit, which is adorned with evocative colors and detailing.

The new away shirt is predominately golden yellow, a hue long associated with Catalan unity. On the back, four vertical red stripes on a golden yellow background run from the shoulders to the hem. This design is inspired in the way that FC Barcelona fans wear the Senyera around their necks as a cape in celebration and support.
