The Barça second strip in 2015/16 /NIKE

The ‘senyera’, the iconic flag of Catalonia, that is so important in the city and club’s culture, is the inspiration for the second strip, with evocative colours and plenty of details.

The new second strip is golden yellow, a tone associated to Catalonia. There are four vertical red stripes on the back over a golden yellow background from top to bottom. The design is inspired by the way that FC Barcelona fans drape the Catalan flag over their backs like a cape, thus expressing their passion for Catalonia and the club.

The shirt will be on sale from June 25 and features a modern, rounded collar, which is yellow in front to match the neck of the shirt, and has two stripes on the back in the typical Barça colours around the neck, in recognition of the usual first strip colours. Inside the neck we find the famous club slogan, ‘Més que un club’.

The shirt also has a blue line on each side. These go down to the sky blue shorts as well, which is a nod to the kits that so many legendary FC Barcelona players wore in the early 1970s.

Second shorts option

This season, FC Barcelona has a second option for the shorts, a golden yellow model with a blue stripe on the sides, which clearly reflects Catalan pride in the form of yellow from head to toe.

The new golden yellow socks of the second strip include a wide blue stripe with little crests on the calves.

For both the first and second kit, the exclusive FC Barcelona font for the player names and numbers has been modified. It has been slightly refined for the new season, looking sharper and thinner.
