Fans of Football Club Barcelona will be going into the 2022/23 season full of hope.
The start of the 2021/22 campaign under the leadership of Ronald Koeman was horrendous at best and Lionel Messi‘s infamous exit last summer didn’t exactly help matters either.
But with club legend Xavi Hernandez now in the hot-seat, things are starting to look a heck of a lot better for one of the biggest clubs on the planet.
Barcelona sit third in the La Liga table and are through to the last-16 of the Europa League after beating Napoli 5-3 on aggregate in their play-off.
It’s now hard to envisage a world in which the Blaugrana are not playing Champions League football next season and they’re also expected to be very busy in the summer transfer market, which opens in a few months.
All in all, it’s an exciting time to be a Barcelona fan once again and supporters have now been given a glimpse of what life will be like for the team in a potentially positive 2022/23 season.
How you ask? Well, three of the club’s kits for next season have now been ‘leaked’ online with the Spotify sponsor on them and it’s safe to say they’re very unique designs.
And as is customary when a future kit appears on social media, fans are completely split on whether they are actually nice or not.
Take a look at the designs here…

Interesting. The home shirt is a bit of a throwback to yesteryear, while the other two jerseys are slightly more unique – the white shirt in particular.
It’s certainly an eye-catching design and the more simplistic gold/yellow kit has the potential to look rather smart.
But judging by some of the fan reaction, not everyone is pleased…

Who’d be a kit designer, eh?
