Barcelona are set to unveil yet another new shirt later this month, and this one will be used purely against Real Madrid when the two teams meet in April in La Liga.
It’s not clear exactly why Barca need another kit, particularly as they’ve already worn four different ones this season, but that’s certainly not stopping them.
Here’s the blurb from the club’s website.
“FC Barcelona’s ‘eternal captain’ Carles Puyol is to be the image of the presentation of the fifth uniform for the 2020-21 season, called the “Clásico Special Edition” and specially designed to be used in just one game, the Clásico between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona to be played in Madrid on the weekend of April 11.
“The shirt is the first to combine Barça’s blaugrana colours with the red and yellow of the Catalan flag, or ‘senyera’, will go on exclusive sale at FC Barcelona stores from late January.”
Barcelona haven’t released any pictures yet but it will apparently look like this....
