CHECKBOARD REPLACES TRADITIONAL STRIPES

The 2019-20 FC Barcelona Home Kit

For 2019-20, the Blaugrana deviate from its traditional striped home jerseys. Instead, it will debut a checkboard print inspired by the gridded streetscape of Barcelona’s Eixample district.

The neighbourhood pulses with creativity, and its residents are acknowledged as the building blocks of the city’s future.

“Barcelona is a club with a bold and adventurous philosophy and that resonates throughout the city.”
- Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director

Influential figures from Barcelona’s broad sporting spectrum joined FC Barcelona’s players and pioneers from the fields of fashion, science, food, music and art to unveil the kit and celebrate their shared spirit, culture and identity.

In 2015-16, Barcelona’s kit swapped its traditional stripes for hoops. The checkboard design is only the second shift from the club’s norm and provides a fresh interpretation of Barca’s world-famous colours.
