Nike has presented the new FC Barcelona third strip for the 2017/18 season, and the maroon coloured design is on sale from Tuesday from NIKE.COM/FCB and official club distributors. The FC Barcelona first team will be wearing it for the first time next September 27 in their Champions League match against Sporting Lisbon.
The kit is a bold and exciting design that celebrates the club’s unique standing in world football whilst offering Aeroswift technology for cutting edge performance, and contemporary detailing.
The striking dark maroon colorway of the shirt, shorts and socks is as bold as the club’s world famous style of play. Its modern round neck is simple whilst the sharp geometric patterns on both shirt and sock stand out from any crowd.
The bright orange stripe detail along the shoulder and the arm include a mosaic like detail that celebrates the work of the city’s famous architecture. The players’ numbers will appear in the same bright orange. The back of the shirt also includes the word, “Barça” reiterating the pride both in the club and in the city.
The sides of the kit feature a stripe that runs the length of the shirt and shorts where it fades into a distinctive orange. Expanding when the player is in motion, the stripe maximizes ventilation and allows better freedom of movement.
The socks include Nike grip technology enhancing foot-to-boot connection and have the word, “Barça” in bright orange underneath the Nike swoosh.
"As a player you always want to step onto the pitch looking and feling confident to play your game. I'm really proud to pull on this new kit, inspired by my city and my culture. The innovation and design takes it to a new level," Sergi Roberto enthused.
The match kit along with the training and lifestyle collections will be available from this Tuesday 12 September on NIKE.Com/FCB and at official FC Barcelona retailers.
