Barcelona Home Shirt for 2013-14 Season: New Up-Close Images [PHOTOS]

barcelona home shirt feature 600x328 Barcelona Home Shirt for 2013 14 Season: New Up Close Images [PHOTOS]

New images of Barcelona’s home shirt for the 2013-14 season have been released.

Love or hate the team, there’s no denying that Barcelona’s home shirt for next season is noticeably different. One of the most unique aspects is the bands near the bottom of the sleeve, which is something I haven’t seen before.

For some reason, v-necks are making a comeback in soccer jerseys, and Barcelona’s shirt for next season has a bright yellow v-neck that jumps out at you.

Gone are the days when Barcelona didn’t have a sponsor. The airline is emblazoned on the front of the shirt, while Unicef are on the back.

Overall, Barcelona’s shirt design manages to keep the traditions of previous jerseys but also takes a step forward to look very modern.

    SOLID. Tradition meets slightly new ideas. I like it.

  2. ed of course says:

    One “hates” Real Madrid or Manchester United or Zenit. Hating Barcelona is not an option for true futbol supporters. If you think you hate Barcelona there are many sources to reeducate.

    As for the jerseys, really a traditional Barca shirt, except the sleeves. “Quatar Airways” in white jumps out, but better than having it in Arabic, which was proposed. Actually, this was released weeks ago.

  3. Anthony says:

    Clean design. Better than this years IMO

  4. Conrad says:

    I wish the blaugrana was a brighter color, and yea, the sponsor should be gold as it’s always been. White is for the Eternal Enemy.

  5. Mufc77 says:

    Interesting the have a sponsor on the front and UNICEF on the back.

    How long before Utd have some major sponsor on the back of the shirt paying 20m a year.

  6. brn442 says:

    I had no idea Barca played in the EPL but as for the shirt, it is one of the best Nike has ever made for the club, even with Barca finally having their first truly commercial shirt sponsor in their history.

    @Mufc – Barcelona supposedly pays UNICEF, so technically, it is not considered a “sponsor”

    • Mufc77 says:

      Makes you wonder though why hasn’t some EPL club tried to take advantage of the idea of a second shirt sponsor. Maybe there is some re against more than one name on a shirt.

      • Mufc77 says:

        Rules

        • brn442 says:

          As per Boris – it is not currently allowed, as they make a ton in TV revenue to bother for now. Expect that to change.

          I assume most big clubs outside of France probably consider two sponsors “low-brow” Juve, Inter, AC Milan, Real Madrid, Bayern etc. can do it, per their league but choose not to, for now.

      • BorisYeltsin says:

        Yeah, I’m pretty sure the EPL has tight rules about the size and placement of sponsor’s logos.

        If it was allowed, you can bet your house that ALL the EPL clubs would have sponsor’s logos wherever possible (just like in the Championship, where a lot of teams have a secondary sponsor).

  7. Tobi says:

    Wow… I love dis…. Nice one

  8. Marc L says:

    Away kit appears to be here. Incorporates the Senyera (Catalan flag) design, as has been long rumored.

    I completely hate Nike in general but have to give them credit here. Classy designs, I think, and quantum improvements over the present.

    Seems like Nike designers like to do gimmicky things for the sake of overall gimmickry. Usually tends to look foolish but on the home kit I think the stripes at the bottom of the sleeves (and the Senyera worked into the back of the collar) are kind of cool.

  9. BorisYeltsin says:

    Hmm, the blue seems too dark and dull. Apart from that though, it’s a vast improvement on this season’s kit (which looks like a blurred vision of a traditional Paris StGermain shirt).

  10. Steve says:

    can we stop these reports about la liga

  11. John C says:

    I definitely like the new look of the away jersey better, but the home shirt also looks good. I agree with earlier critique that the front sponsor name should have been yellow. The white just seems a bit off. I like the duller tones to contrast the very bright away kit.

  12. The jessy remain one of the best, one thing with FCB Playes is that every jessy fits.
    Thank God we are preparing against next season. GREAT BARCELO NA. All friends reach me via +2348096482565 / mpoa.affinity@yahoo.com

  13. I definitely have no though about their home jersey,but the away jersey too is wonderful.Bravo to Barcelona for preparing for the next season.
