Barcelona Kit For 2019/20

A new Barcelona kit for 2019/20 season has been unveiled and the club have opted to ditch the traditional stripes for a more daring design.

The Spanish giants have stuck with the well-known blue and red colour scheme but have alternatively decided on a chequered pattern to ‘pay homage to the city's design'.

Lionel Messi and Gerard Pique were among the stars to feature in the club's unveiling on Monday evening.

Barca have revealed they took the new design from the city's Eixample district and the 'emblematic buildings' designed by architect Antoni Gaudí.

The kit also features traditional blue shorts and blue socks with red trim and it will go on sale to the general public on June 4.

Another new aspect – compared to recent kits – is the location of the Catalan flag.

The design is usually positioned at the back of the neck but is now located on the neck and in the shape of a V instead.

In 2015-16, Barcelona swapped stripes for hoops on their home kit but the checkboard design is another fresh take on one of world football's most iconic shirts.
