Arriving in preparation for the coming Champions League campaign, Nike launch the Barcelona 21/22 third shirt, which introduces a bold take on the classic Blaugrana look of blue and red stripes.
Joining the already released home and away shirts for the 21/22 season, Nike reveal the Barcelona third shirt, which is set to be used as the home shirt in the club’s Champions League campaign. The design is the result of an artistic process involving young talents from Barcelona which offers a creative reinterpretation of the traditional blaugrana stripes. It stresses the close link between the Club and the city by incorporating a representation of its neighbourhoods in its design, as reimagined by these talented young artists.
Set to debut at the Camp Nou on Tuesday, 14 September 14 for the men’s opening match in the Champions League group stage against Bayern Munich, the shirt sees vertical blue and red stripes appearing in neon tones and incorporating different background designs that reflect five Barcelona neighbourhoods: Poble-sec, Poble Nou, Gràcia, Raval and Les Corts. The most iconic architectural and cultural landmarks of each of these districts are depicted in reinterpreted silhouettes by young local talents. Each stripe also pays homage to the scarves worn by fans on a match day.
