FC Barcelona Away Kit 2017-18

The new FC Barcelona away kit has a palette of vivid blue and red with contemporary detailing inspired by the club’s history and culture on the collar — partially defined by the Catalan flag, the Senyera. A reminder of inner club pride, the inside of the shirt has the word “Força” on the inner right sleeve and “Barça” on the left.

The sides of the kit feature a dark red and blue stripe on the left and right sides, respectively, running the length of the shirt and blue shorts. Expanding when the player is in motion, the stripes maximize ventilation.

Blue socks, incorporating Nike Grip technology, feature “Barça” on the front in a darker red shade. A distinctive graphic on the back of the calf showcases the club’s red accent color and accentuates speed. 

The FC Barcelona away kit will be available starting July 1 at NIKE.COM/FCB , official stores and via selected retailers.

Commitment to Sustainability

Nike leverages sustainable innovation for its football kits through the use of recycled polyester, delivering unrivaled performance and lower environmental impact.

The kit’s shirt and shorts are constructed with recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles melted down to produce a fine yarn.

Each kit is made using approximately 16 recycled plastic bottles. Since 2010, Nike has diverted more than three billion plastic bottles from landfills into recycled polyester, enough to cover about 5,200 football pitches.

Nike Aeroswift Technology

These are Nike’s most technologically advanced kits ever, using new AeroSwift technology they are now 10% lighter, with 50% more stretch than last season’s kits. They use a new, textured high-performance yarn that wicks sweat from the skin 20% faster ever before, while drying 25% faster. The shirt and shorts are also constructed using a new knitting process that integrates single and double knit to enhance breathability, stretch and fit.
