Barcelona launched their new home kit for 2020-21 on Tuesday which sees the club back in stripes for the new campaign.
The shirt has been leaked a long time ago but it’s still pretty nice to have a look at players in the new shirt after ditching this season’s Croatia-style checkerboard.

Barca had been due to debut the new kit against Espanyol but there had been problems with the shirt which had seen its release delayed until now.
Here’s some blurb from the club:
“This season, the jersey is recovering its traditional vertical stripes, but is including gold as a distinctive element. The ‘blaugrana’ stripes are bordered on each side by gold strips, which evoke the design of the Club crest that the team wore on their shirts throughout the 1920s.
“Another outstanding feature of the new design is the roundneck collar that also has a gold-coloured rim, while the Catalan ‘senyera’ flag appears on the back, just underneath. The full kit also includes blue shorts, with a vertical maroon stripe on the side, which also has a gold rim, and horizontally striped socks that imitate the shirt design.
“Once again, this season’s jersey is going on sale with the logo of Rakuten on the front and Beko on the left sleeve, Main partners of the Men’s team, and the logo of Stanley, Main partner of the women’s team.”
There’s no official statement on when we’ll see it in action, possibly against Osasuna on Thursday?
