LEAKED: Barcelona 18-19 Home Kit to Feature Eixample Inspiration

Catalan sports daily Mundo Deportivo, the first to leak design clues about the club's 17-18 jersey back in May 2016, these days published the first bits of info regarding the Barcelona 18-19 kit.

Produced by Nike and continuing with Rakuten as main sponsor, the Barcelona 2018-19 Home jersey is set to be released in about 11 months from now.

The FC Barcelona 2018-2019 Home shirt will take inspiration from the iconic Eixample district (pictured above) of Barcelona, according to the publication. Mundo Deportivo claim that they had the chance to speak with someone inside the club with access to the (already finalized) shirt design.

Without further detailing on how the Eixample inspiration would end up on the Barcelona 18-19 shirt, MD quotes its source saying that it would be in a curious way that would get someone's attention. Additionally, it would be seen as a move to jointly promote the club and the city of Barcelona.

Back in 2013-14, Nike launched two differently colored pre-match shirts for Barcelona, one blue and one yellow, that featured a photorealistic depiction of the Eixample.

Besides all of this, it will be very interesting to see whether Nike will move on from its current template after the World Cup or continue updating it going into 2018-19.
