This is the new Barcelona third kit 2015/2016, Barca’s new second alternate/European strip for the Champions League and other select games during the 15/16 season. Made by Nike, the new Barca Champions League jersey was officially unveiled on 15 September, 2015 and will make its debut tomorrow night (September 16) against Italian outfit AS Roma. The Blaugrana are the defending champions, having beaten Juventus in last season’s final.
The third shirt features an electric shade of the blue (blau) colour that is well associated with the club. It’s been officially named the “Night Rising” kit and features an ombre graphic on the cuffs of the shirt and the shorts. The strip is completed by black shorts with dark grey chevrons, although there is also an option to wear blue socks in case of a colour clash. The Senyera flag features on the right sleeve, with Nike also using a unique typeface for names and numbers.
Like with other Nike kits, this uses Dri-Fit technology and has been made from recycled bottles.
