After weeks of leaks, FC Barcelona’s website has published pictures of the La Blaugrana’s Nike 2009/10 home, away and first goalkeeper kits. According to the website Barca will wear the new home kit for the first time on Saturday in the Camp Nou for the match against Osasuna. The second choice kit will be used for the last league match of the season away to Deportivo next weekend. Here’s FC Barcelona’s description of their new kits.
The design for the first choice strip goes back to the traditional navy blue and claret vertical stripes while the second strip is a bright mango colour.The first choice shirt recovers the traditional navy blue and claret vertical stripes but now edged with a thin yellow line and has a V-neck and sleeve borders with a subtle black and yellow stripe. At the back of the neck we find the Senyera, the Catalan flag.
Details of the shirt
A label is sewn on the inside of the neck with “Més que un club” (More than a club) and attached to the side stitching another small label with the name of the club.The shirt is made of Nike Dri-Fit material, which is designed to absorb sweat enabling the player to feel dry and fresh for longer. Its three-dimensional architecture allows a greater circulation of air around the skin which prevents the shirt sticking.
The official shorts are a classic navy blue with a claret stripe down the side and incorporate the Senyera (Catalan flag) on the back of the waistband. The cords have the stripes of the Catalan flag and the socks have horizontal claret and blue stripes, a yellow edging and have the word “Barça” stamped on the calf.
Second choice kit
The new second choice kit retains the details that distinguish the first choice kit. The shirt is a bright mango colour (evoking the Mediterranean Sea) with a round neck and blue edgings. The blue shorts have a mango-coloured stripe down the side and socks in the same colour with a blue border and “Barça” stamped on the calf.
