Coming Soon!?! Special-Edition Nike FC Barcelona El Clasico Kit Leaked - New Pictures

Update - March 14: New pictures of the Barcelona 'El Clasico' kit have surfaced, showing the authentic, replica and kids' versions. This could very well mean that we'll soon see an official launch for the jersey.

BREAKING - March 1: The Barcelona Clásico shirt is available to buy in the United States. More stores and countries should follow over the weekend.

Having released the unworn Mashup jersey last fall, Nike are set to launch a brand-new special-edition Barcelona kit to be worn in El Clasico this weekend, confirming our earlier report.

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 for El Clasico

This is the Nike FC Barcelona El Clasico 2019 football shirt.

The special-edition Nike FC Barcelona 2019 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, set to hit stores in March 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.

Although this was definitely the plan at first, we cannot confirm just yet whether Barcelona will wear the shirt on Saturday.
