Every year, millions of fans purchase the Barcelona away kit, and with the 2022/23 design paying homage to history, they may make even better sales than usual.
After making their return to the top table of world football, Blaugrana deserve a strip fit for the best. The Spanish outfit have struggled in recent times due to financial issues. But following a rocky start to their campaign, they brought in Xavi, and the footballing icon made a substantial impact.
The 42-year-old instantly set 10 rules which the players had to follow, such as turning up 90 minutes early for training. He then worked on their tactical play, and the team started passing the ball around and linking up play in a much more attractive fashion.
The team went on a 13-match unbeaten run which included a 4-0 smashing of their rivals Real Madrid.
They ultimately finished second in the league and hope to push on next season. And to do that, they’ve crafted a beautiful jersey. Barca always create great away kits. Their bright yellow 2015-16 strip stood out. Furthermore, as did the sunset orange design of 2012-13.
But this year, they appear to have pushed the boat out even further.
Barcelona away kit 2022/23 ‘leaked’
If you want to win the league, you may as well go gold. The away shirt, as per Footy Headlines, features a beautiful colour reminiscent of their shirts from the early 2000s. However, the most striking element of the design is the way Barca have incorporated a piece of history.
They have used gold to remind fans of Spain’s gold medals at the 1992 Olympic Games, which took place in Barcelona.
They have also added Olympic rings on the cuffs of the sleeves and socks, topped off with a map of the city, which features several grids of blocks of houses in the L’Eixample neighbourhood, in addition to Avenida Diagonal.
In addition, Barcelona fans have taken to social media to voice their opinions on the ‘leaked’ design:
