Barça's new kit for the 2015/16 season shows horizontal stripes for first time

FC Barcelona next season will have a new kit from Nike in which the famous blaugrana stripes will be horizontal by the horizontal stripes of the blaugrana flags that are waved by the fans on match day at Camp Nou. The horizontal stripes have been seen before on kits for the basketball, rugby and track and field teams at FC Barcelona. However, it is the first time in the long and rich history of the Catalan club that the football team will have horizontal stripes on their kit. 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.

Barcelona (FCB).- FC Barcelona next season will have a new kit from Nike in which the famous blaugrana stripes will be horizontal by the horizontal stripes of the blaugrana flags that are waved by the fans on match day at Camp Nou. The horizontal stripes have been seen before on kits for the basketball, rugby and track and field teams at FC Barcelona. However, it is the first time in the long and rich history of the Catalan club that the football team will have horizontal stripes on their kit.


On 26 May the shirt will be available at nike.com/FCB and in the shops.

The four maroon horizontal stripes stand out on a blue background, a design that is 100% blaugrana for fans all over the world. A yellow gold rivet with four thin red stripes surround the outside part of the collar, stylised and modern and on the inside of the collar the club’s famous logo ‘More than a Club’ can be seen, just as it can be in the stands at Camp Nou.

The yellow golden stripe on sides of the shirt continues down the shorts which are in the classic red of FC Barcelona.

The new socks for the first team are blue with a red stripe in the top part where a wide stripe of small chevrons in the calf area can be seen in golden yellow.

Both for the first and second kits there will be a special form of lettering for the names and numbers of the players, more refined and thinner for the coming season.

Pride, passion and history

 “These new kits are a homage to the club, its fans’ passion and its incredible sporting history”, comments Martin Lotti, Creative Director at Nike Football. “The kits are the result of a close collaboration between FC Barcelona and Nike and reflect a profound understanding of the unique cultural importance of the club and our shared commitment to revolutionising the sport of football”.

Second kit, to showcase the Catalan flag once again

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.
