For Saturday’s game against Bilbao, the first team will wear the Senyera kit, with the Catalan flag colours, to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the Catalan National Day. The kit is already laid out in the changing rooms for the players, with the kit men in early this morning to prepare for the match.

The LFP confirmed that Barça could wear their away strip for the game after the Board requested permission, as part of the 300 year celebrations of the Catalan National Day.

The celebrations will also feature the unfurling of a giant flag, with the Barça and Catalan colours before the game kicks off.
