Barcelona released the club’s new third kit for the 2021-22 season on Thursday which will be worn by the men’s and women’s teams “exclusively” in the Champions League.
As we’ve already seen, the kit features vertical vertical blue and red(ish) stripes with a design that “reflects five incorporate different background designs that reflect five Barcelona neighbourhoods: Poble-sec, Poble Nou, Gràcia, Raval and Les Corts.”
The shorts are (all) blue and match the shirt. They also feature a darker blue stripe down the side with the words ‘El nostre Barça’ (Our Barça). The kit is completed with darker socks.

Here’s a bit more blurb about the new kit:
“The new shirt is being presented under the tagline ‘Created BY Barcelona’, and its launch includes a series of actions to promote the talent among young people in the city and Barça fans in general. Just as these youngsters were involved in the shirt design, different local artists will also be featured in the launch, offering their own interpretations of what the shirt means. They will create posters that will be published on the Club’s social networks; while Barça fans from all over the world will be invited to share their own interpretations as well.”

The new kit will make its debut on Tuesday when Bayern Munich visit the Camp Nou in the the first round of group-stage Champions League fixtures.
