Special-Edition Nike FC Barcelona 1998-99 Remake Kit Released

Update: The Nike Barcelona '98 remake shirt is now available to buy.

Following up on the unworn Mashup jersey last fall, Nike have launched a brand-new special-edition Barcelona kit.

Similar to the aforementioned Mashup effort, the Nike Barcelona 2019 El Clasico kit celebrates Nike and Barca's partnership with a retro-infused look, this time taking inspiration from the first-ever Nike FC Barcelona shirt from 1998.

FC Barcelona 2019 Special-Edition Kit

This is the Nike FC Barcelona 1998-99 remake football shirt.

The special-edition Nike FC Barcelona 1998 - 2019 remake jersey features Barca's classic colors, combined with a retro design and a more vibrant yellow Swoosh that's centered on the chest, just like on the 1998 kit. There's just one red and two blue stripes on the front of the FC Barcelona 2019 special-edition kit.

Based on the Vapor template, the Nike Barcelona El Clasico 2019 soccer jersey features the new roundel authenticity tag on the bottom left above the hem, whilst the sleeves red with a single blue stripe on the bottom. The sleeve cuffs are navy, as is the collar, which additionally boasts the Catalan flag on the back.

The FC Barcelona 2019 special-edition shirt will be available as authentic and replica version on 10 April 2019. It will retail at the same price as Nike's regular FC Barcelona kits (140 Euro for the authentic Vapor Match version, 90 Euro for the replica version). It will be relatively limited, similar to the Mashup shirt last year.

Initially planned to be worn in the Clasico, we will in the end not see the FC Barcelona Nike 98-99 remake soccer jersey make an appearance on the field.
