Revolutionary FC Barcelona 15-16 Kits Released

The new Nike FC Barcelona 15-16 Home Kit features horizontal stripes for the first time in the club history. The new Barcelona 2015-2016 Third Kit was released on September 15.



The new FC Barcelona 15-16 Kits are made by long-term kit supplier Nike and feature Qatar Airways as shirt sponsor. The Barcelona - Qatar Airways sponsorship is in its last year and the Barcelona 2015-16 Home and Away Kits could be the last to feature the Qatari airline's logo on the front.

The new Barcelona 2015-16 Home Jersey boasts horizontal blue and red stripes for the first time in the club's history. The hoops appear on both the front and the back of the new Barcelona Kit, while the upper part and the sleeves of the new Barcelona 15-16 Shirt are solid blue.

Nike claims that the horizontal stripes design of the new Barcelona Kit takes inspiration from the "horizontal stripes on the Blaugrana flags fans hold aloft on match days at Camp Nou."

After three seasons with the same typeface, the font utilized for player names and numbers was redesigned for the new Barcelona 15-16 Kit.



The v-collar of the Barcelona 15-16 Home Kit boasts the Catalan flag, while there's a yellow line on each side of the new Barcelona 2015-16 Home Jersey. The Nike Swoosh and the Qatar Airways logo are white.
