The new FC Barcelona away kit has a palette of vivid blue and red with contemporary detailing inspired by the club’s history and culture on the collar — partially defined by the Catalan flag, the Senyera. A reminder of inner club pride, the inside of the shirt has the word “Força” on the inner right sleeve and “Barça” on the left.

Fusing Aeroswift technology for cutting-edge performance, the shirt’s engineered knit zones create a subtle geometric pattern and enhance fit for the athlete in motion.

The sides of the kit feature a dark red and blue stripe on the left and right sides, respectively, running the length of the shirt and blue shorts. Expanding when the player is in motion, the stripes maximize ventilation.

Blue socks, incorporating Nike Grip technology, feature “Barça” on the front in a darker red shade. A distinctive graphic on the back of the calf showcases the club’s red accent color and accentuates speed.

The FC Barcelona away kit will be available starting July 1 at NIKE.COM/FCB , official stores and via selected retailers.
