Every Detail Compared: Nike FC Barcelona 1998-99 vs 2019 Remake 'El Clásico' Kit

Nike will very soon release a special FC Barcelona kit to celebrate 20-years anniversary of the partnership with Catalan giants FC Barcelona. While the special FC Barcelona 2019 jersey is dubbed the 'El Clásico' kit, it takes close inspiration from the first-ever Nike FC Barcelona shirt from 1998. We compare the original shirt with the remake.

Nike FC Barcelona 98-99 vs 2019 'El Clásico' Remake Jerseys

There are three main differences between the OG and the remake kit.

First, the template. The classic FC Barcelona kit feature Nike's style of 1998-99, while the remake is based on the latest Nike Vapor Knit template. This affects the collar (1998-99 Nike collar style vs 2019 collar style), the whole cut of the kit (manly on the back) as well as the logo on the bottom left. The logos are heat-printed instead of stitched.

The second remarkable difference is the Barca logo - the classic comes with the 1998-99 one, while the remake features the current Barca crest.

The third important difference is that the 2019 remake of the FC Barcelona 1998-99 kit will not feature the classic numbers but the current La Liga font style.
