Millions of Barcelona fans head to the stores every season to buy their club’s new kit, but with the 2022/23 home jersey looking as spectacular as it does, ‘La Blaugrana’ may record even higher sales than usual.
After years of financial struggles, Barca finally seems on the cusp of returning to its brilliant best. In November, Xavi returned to the Nou Camp on a managerial deal, and he’s well and truly turned the tide at his former club.
He instantly asserted his authority by setting a series of strict rules. The players had to allow him to track their off the pitch activities, in addition to turning up to training 90-minutes early. Furthermore, he made key signings by securing the services of Ferran Torres and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
He’s improved their motivation and tactical approach, and slowly but surely, they’ve started looking like the side in which Xavi had so much success. They embarked on a thirteen game unbeaten run, featuring a 4-0 win over Real Madrid, and with just three games left of the season, they currently stand in second place.
Although they still have a way to go, the players can find pride in their rejuvenated performances throughout the season. They’re going into the next campaign with a title challenge in mind, so it’s only appropriate that they’ll be wearing a kit fit for a king.
Barcelona 2022/23 home kit leaked
On May 4, journalist Gerard Romero revealed pictures from a photoshoot that showcased the jersey that Barca will grace the pitch in next season. The stylish shirt adds dark blue to the famous Blaugrana stripes.
As per SPORT, the designers have taken inspiration from the 1992 Barcelona Olympic games. Furthermore, although not prominently featured in Romero’s image, streaming giants Spotify will print their logo in the centre of the shirt.
The shirt marks the end of an era as the following season, the Spanish giants will leave the Nou Camp.
Barca set to leave Nou Camp
While the iconic ground receives a huge revamp, Barca will play at the Montjuic Stadium. The venue rose to prominence for hosting a large portion of the Olympics. But despite overlooking a stunning harbour, the supporters have their concerns.
The ground only holds a maximum capacity of 60,713. Sadly for the fans, this is a significant 37,641 less than The Nou Camp. Ultimately, this will result in a massive percentage of hardcore followers missing out on the games. Therefore, they can only hope that the renovations to their historic home are worth it.
