Barcelona will reportedly debut next season’s home kit against Espanyol on Wednesday 8 July at the Camp Nou.

Images of the shirt have already been leaked and sees the club return to their traditional stripes after a season in their Croatia-inspired checkerboard number.

According to Sport, Barca will not wait until the end of the season to put the new shirt on sale, because of the coronavirus delay, and will have it ready to buy by July 3.

The players will then wear it for the first time in their penultimate home game of the season in La Liga against their local rivals.

It’s not clear yet if UEFA will allow them to wear the new shirt in the Champions League or if the club will have to stick to this season’s shirt.
