First photos of Barcelona’s striking new Champions League kit leaked online

 

A series of photos of the kit set to be donned by La Liga giants Barcelona when lining out at the Camp Nou in the Champions League this season have come to the fore online.

Nike targeted

The subject of kit design has of course taken centre stage at Barca of late.

This comes with the latest efforts put forth by Nike for the 2021/22 campaign having not exactly gone down a treat with the club’s fanbase.

First came the Blaugrana’s outlandish new-look home jersey (seen below), labelled by some as the most strikingly ugly design in the club’s famed history:

Barca’s CL look

If the first images of the home kit expected to be donned by Ronald Koeman’s men in the Champions League over the course of the season ahead are anything to go by, though, then it certainly appears as though Nike have not been discouraged in their efforts to shake things up.

This comes with the heavyweight manufacturer having opted for another striking design, albeit one which, based on initial reactions, looks set to be welcomed in a considerably more positive manner than those showcased above.

The kit in question, spotted for sale on Monday, is showcased below (photos courtesy of the reliable Footy Headlines):
