With the deal for the sponsorship not closed yet, the company started the production
As FC Barcelona's vice president, Manel Arroyo, announced, the first jerseys of the new season will be sold with no sponsor, something which has not happened since 2005-06.
According to the newspaper Sport, Nike can't wait more for the club to close a deal and started the production of next season's jerseys.
The problem is that FC Barcelona will have to compensate Nike for breach of contract because they did not meet the deadline agreed on how the shirt should look like. Thus, the American brand will have to carry out a second production run when the club closes a deal with a sponsor.
In the picture accompanying the information, you can see how the new designs will look like: the first shirt with vertical strips (a vintage model which reminds of 80s jerseys), an away kit green turquoise and a third kit which is purple with pink details.
