The Catalan giants broke tradition with their new home shirt, when they went away from their characteristic stripes to checkerboard design.
The new away jersey appears in yellow with a diagonal stripe, paying homage to the club’s famous youth academy La Masia.
“The FC Barcelona away kit for the 2019/20 season pays tribute to La Masia, the youth academy that is currently synonymous with teamwork, young talents and the future of the Club, on the 40th anniversary of the creation of this famous residence for players at the historic country farmstead of Can Planes,” reads a statement on the club’s official website.
“The new jersey will be yellow, with a diagonal stripe in the traditional ‘blaugrana’ colours, in a throwback to the away kit worn by Barça in 1979."
Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director added: “Barça’s away kit from ’79 is a cult classic and with us wanting to pay homage to La Masia, it made perfect sense to use a kit from its founding year as the starting point. What you get is this beautiful vintage Barça design merged with all the benefits of modern technology. La Masia has produced so many iconic players and it remains an honour to produce kits for them.”
