Spanish giants FC Barcelona today launched their away kit for the upcoming season. The kit is once again manufactured by Nike and according to the clubs website it is their first purple away kit. Take a look for yourself:
Based on Nike’s Vapor kit template, already used for the Barcelona 16-17 home kit as well as the brand’s Copa America and Euro offerings, the Barcelona 2016-17 away kit is predominantly purple with dark navy sleeves and pink branding. The kit is completed by shorts in the same shade of dark purple while the socks are an electric pink.
It’s quite a bold colour combo but club captain Andres Iniesta says “the fusion of the traditional red and blue makes this shirt shocking, but at the same time really linked with our history. In addition, thanks to the new technology we feel much more agile and fast.”
The Catalans will certainly be seen when they play away from home this season.
