FC Barcelona will debut their 2016/17 Nike third kit during Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League group stage clash with Borussia Mönchengladbach at Borussia Park stadium.
The FC Barcelona 2016/17 Nike third kit features a series of green horizontal lines on a “glow green” base. The lines decrease in width towards the waistline to produce a speed-inspired gradient effect. The colors of the kit are intended to highlight player movement when worn during matches played under floodlights.
Barca’s new change shirt has a modern v-neck collar with a light glow green strip accenting its back area. “Barça” is knitted into back collar while the inside cuffs of player issue versions of the jersey feature “Un Crit” on the right and “Valent” on the left. These words translate from the Catalan phrase of “Our Cry is Bold”. The saying is part of FCB’s official anthem Cant del Barça.
The sides of the kit have a black stripe that runs the length of the shirt and matching shorts. Expanding when the player is in motion, the stripe maximizes ventilation and reveals a flash of underlying glow green. Glow green socks, featuring NikeGrip technology, with a dark green linear graphic on the calf, accentuate speed.
