The historic player will be the image of the fifth kit for the 2020-21 season, designed for a single game against Real Madrid and combining the blaugrana colours with the Catalan flag
FC Barcelona’s ‘eternal captain’ Carles Puyol is to be the image of the presentation of the fifth uniform for the 2020-21 season, called the “Clásico Special Edition” and specially designed to be used in just one game, the Clásico between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona to be played in Madrid on the weekend of April 11. The shirt is the first to combine Barça’s blaugrana colours with the red and yellow of the Catalan flag, or ‘senyera’, will go on exclusive sale at FC Barcelona stores from late January.
As part of the “We Play As We Are” tagline, the fifth different strip to be used in the 2020-21 season seeks to emphasise the sense of belonging to the club, the values that unite it and everything that makes us who we are. It is a shirt in which the pride of supporting Barça is seamlessly blended with our roots.
The person who has been chosen to present the image of this very special shirt is Carles Puyol, who as the former first captain is the very personification of the club’s unique values and style of play, and who more than anyone has always encouraged the team to keep battling even in the most difficult of situations.
