Barcelona 19-20 Away Kit Revealed
The Barcelona 19-20 away kit was officially unveiled this morning, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the founding of La Masia with a retro-inspired look. It will be available to buy from July 9th.
“It is not an accident that La Masia has given the world so many great players,” says full-back and La Masia product Sergi Roberto. “It is a special place with a unique philosophy and I am pleased this new away kit highlights the academy. Forty years of work at La Masia really is something worth celebrating.”

This is the Barcelona 2019-20 away jersey.
The Barcelona 2019-2020 away shirt is golden yellow ('varsity maize') with a blue and red sash across the front, inspired by iconic jerseys worn in the 1970s. Just like on the original retro design, the sash on the Barcelona 19-20 away jersey goes from the top right to the bottom left, with a small gap left for the Rakuten sponsor.
The blue and red used on the Barcelona 19-20 away jersey are the same ones that will make up the squares on the home kit, and the same goes for the yellow, which features in the form of the Nike logos on the home.
The sleeve cuffs are blue and red on the right and left, respectively. The back collar shows the Catalan flag. The Barcelona logo appears on the left chest of the Nike Barcelona 2019-2020 away kit, whilst the Swoosh is placed inside the sash on the opposite side.
The socks of the Barcelona 19-20 away kit are yellow, while blue or yellow shorts will be used depending on the opposition.
The Barcelona 2019-20 away jersey will be available to buy from tomorrow, July 9th.
“Barça’s away kit from ’79 is a cult classic and with us wanting to pay homage to La Masia, it made perfect sense to use a kit from its founding year as the starting point,” explains Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “What you get is this beautiful vintage Barça design merged with all the benefits of modern technology. La Masia has produced so many iconic players and it remains an honor to produce kits for them.”
