Nike unveiled FC Barcelona's new third kit today, a stealthy black jersey with vibrant yellow accents that embodies the style and craft of the reigning La Liga champions. The red and yellow stripes of the Senyera, the Catalan flag, are included inside the collar and sleeves, giving a nod to the history and culture of the storied club.
Made from recycled polyester (up to 13 recycled plastic bottles go into the production of each kit), the jersey includes Dri-FIT technology and zoned ventilation to keep Barca's players cool and dry. Each kit weighs in at just 150 grams, 23 percent lighter than previous Nike designs.
The new FC Barcelona third kit will be available for purchase at Nike.com beginning this Saturday, September 21.
