The new kit is an homage to the 1992 version.

Barcelona reveal new home kit - and how much it will cost

Published 8 Comments

Barcelona have unveiled their new home kit for next season - and it's caused quite the stir.

Not only because of its design though - the strip is a throwback to the 'Dream Team' era that won the European Cup in 1992 with a simple stripe motif that certainly catches the eye. 

What also catches the eye is that the Catalan club, the second richest in the world behind Real Madrid, will not have a shirt sponsor for the new campaign.

Barcelona do have previous in this regard, of course. They handed over the space on the front of their shirts to charity Unicef back in 2006, before agreeing a deal with Qatar Airways, which has now come to an end after the two parties failed to reach a new deal.

While the fact they may not have a sponsor next season may be viewed by some as the 'people's club' striking back against the increasingly corporate nature of the game, a quick glance at the price tag of the new strip may force them to think again.

You ready? Right, here we go. The most expensive version, the 'Vapor' match shirt costs £100. The shorts are £45, and the socks are £13. Meaning if you want (for some strange reason) to deck yourself out head to toe in Barcelona's latest strip, you better have £158 lying around. Although if you do and intend on spending it on Barca's kit, then you have more pressing matters to deal with.

There is a standard replica version available at £65, while a full baby strip is £38 and a child's shirt (8-15yo) is a frankly f****** ridiculous £52. 

Barcelona will be hoping to repeat the success of this season in their new strip when the 2016/17 campaign kicks off later this year. Luis Enrique's side completed a league and cup double this term, having won the treble in 2014/15.

Can Barcelona go one better and win the treble next season?
