FC Barcelona’s first team have been given permission by the LFP to wear their “senyera” kit against Athletic Bilbao on Saturday afternoon at the Camp Nou.

The Club’s Board of Directors had requested the change in strip, which features a design based on the Catalan flag, as part of the commemorations to mark the three hundredth anniversary of the September 11 siege of Barcelona in 1714.
