FC Barcelona will wear third kit for the first time this Wednesday against Roma. So Luis Enrique's men will debut in the European competition with this electric blue jersey.
According to the club, this kit evolves the club’s famous blau, instantly identifiable in the traditional home colors, into an electric shade of the blue. The addition to its kit line-up is befitting of a club steeped in rich heritage yet renowned for forward-thinking and innovative football.
A black ombré graphic accentuates the striking blue, blending from the cuffs of the short and shirt. This striking blue forms a powerful block of color across the shirt and shorts, with a black stripe running along both sides of the kit from underneath the armpit down to the hem of the shorts. During night games, this effect accentuates the players’ physical presence underneath the floodlights. Black socks with dark grey chevrons on the calf further this powerful framing of the body, with socks in the kit’s bold blue also available in cases of color clashes.
Names and numbers are in a unique typeface for FC Barcelona, informed by the sentinel chimneys of Antoni Gaudí’s modernist masterpiece La Pedrera – an architectural icon synonymous with the city of Barcelona.
