Nike and FC Barcelona have partnered since 1998, a 20-year period that has been a golden era of success for the club — 10 Spanish league titles, four continental crowns and a host of other silverware. To mark the relationship’s 20th anniversary, Nike is releasing a commemorative jersey featuring a stylish mash-up of every home shirt of the last two decades.
The limited-edition jersey, which will not be worn on pitch, fuses numerous iterations of the club’s famous stripes on the front, back and sleeves to evoke memories of the team’s many triumphs, nostalgia about legendary players and provide snapshots of iconic kits.
Barcelona’s 2018-19 season kit is inspired by their special relationship with the people they represent and features 10 vertical stripes on the shirt — one for each of the main districts of the city. This theme follows the “Ball Makes Us More” campaign, developed in association with Nike and launched last March, which celebrates the club’s place at the heart of the Catalan community and in the soul of the city.
The Barça x Nike 20th Anniversary Jersey will be available November 21 on nike.com and at select retailers.
