This picture shows the Nike FC Barcelona 21-22 home jersey.



The Nike FC Barcelona 21-22 Champions League home football shirt introduces a bold take on the classic Blaugrana look of blue and red stripes.


There are two red and three blue stripes on the front and back of the FC Barcelona 2021-22 Champions League home jersey, while the sleeves are just blue. Dark blue accents in the form of the collar, sleeve cuffs and stripes on the sides complete the look. The logos are yellow.



To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the 1992 Olympic Games in the city, the Nike FC Barcelona 2021-22 Champions League home football shirt features illustrations that highlight landmarks of various Barcelona neighborhoods inside the stripes. These include, among others, the three chimneys of Poble Sec or the original La Masia, which is located next to the Camp Nou.



In total, the quarters that feature on the Nike FC Barcelona 2021-2022 Champions League home shirt are Les Corts, Sant Antoni, Sants, El Raval, Poble Sec and Gràcia. According to the report, Nike spoke with residents and let them draw what they thought most represented their neighborhood on a scarf. Nike then took these ideas to develop the design of the Nike Barcelona 2021-2022 Champions League home shirt.



The same graphics appear througohut the Barcelona 21-22 Champions League collection, not just the on-pitch kit, including a t-shirt which got leaked earlier this year.



What's a bit odd about the claim that the Barcelona 21-22 third / CL home kit would be a traditional 'Blugrana' is the fact that the colors are not exactly traditional - the 'red' Fireberry especially is more of a pink.


The shorts of the Barcelona 21-22 Champions League home kit will be 'hyper royal', while the socks will combine the much darker 'blackened blue' with 'fireberry' and 'varisity maze'.



It will not be the first time that Barcelona have a special home kit for European competition. It already happened back in 93-94, for example, when Johan Cruyff coached the team and the kits were made by Kappa.

In either case, be it due to the design or the lack of success recently, the first impression of this kit by the Barcelona fans was less than impressive. Out of almost 2,000 votes so far on MD's website, more than 70% stated that they did not like the design at all, the worst of the available options.
