Bringing one of the best colour combos in the game into use, Nike launch the Barcelona 20/21 away shirt, which sees the black base joined by regal gold details throughout.

Barcelona are another of those teams that rarely have to put up with a mediocre shirt (see the likes of AS Roma for the company they keep). And following the stunning new home kit launched earlier this month, Nike now dress out the La Liga outfit in an away shirt that is striking for its simplicity. It is the club's first black away kit since the 2011/12 season. "Black and gold go really well together and the kit looks really sharp," says defender Gerard Piqué. "It has been a few years since we have had black, so it’s a nice change to have it back."

Black base with gold details. Can you ask for much more? AIK – who boast a reputation across the world football for their stunning kit releases – were one of the most notable to coin the look following their league triumph in 2018, and now the Catalan club follow suit with a bespoke beauty. The aforementioned gold details pop through the collar, cuffs, sponsor, branding and club crest for a look that celebrates the club’s previous success. That collar is the same that has shown up on the likes the Wolfsburg away and Spurs home shirts recently, that rear fold over proving popular.

"The energy on the ground in Barcelona is hard to match, as is its passion for the football club," says Scott Munson, VP, Nike Football Apparel. "I think these colors work really well to create a clean look that will have that crossover appeal and make it popular in the streets that inspired it."
