Already dominating most of the sports headlines in Barcelona, the new Home and Away Kit for the F.C. Barcelona is a fusion of the team’s past and present. By merging, or “blurring” as some local media calls it, the famous Catalan blue and red stripes, the home kit by Nike Soccer honors F.C. Barcelona’s long held tradition of mentoring local youngsters (the cantera) along side international stars within the club. Typeface in reference to the local architecture, each jersey carries a slogan of “MÃ‰s Que Un Club”, or “More Than a Club” on its inner neckline.
Alterations made on the new away kit reflects the vibrancy of Barcelona, a mix of the culture, the arts, lifestyle and architecture, all unique to the region. On the back of the neck and orange sleeves you will find the Blaugrana details, again in reference to the fans and supporters. And like the home kit, each away kit features the “MÃ‰s Que Un Club” motto and fonts as homage to the local architecture.
As with all Nike Soccer kit for the last few years, each of F.C. Barcelona kit, shirt and shorts, comprised up to thirteen recycled plastic water bottles, thus lower the environmental impact. Yet, the kits are 23% lighter and 20% stronger than previous renditions. Making it one of the most comfortable and versatile kit from Nike Soccer thus far.
The new home and away kits for F.C. Barcelona are both available now for pre-ordering at the F.C. Barcelona online store and select soccer specialty retailers worldwide.
