Official: Barcelona unveil new away kit

What was rumored a lot has been confirmed. Barcelona will play this season with a white jersey for the first time since the 70s.

The Blaugrana came close to doing this last season, wearing a gray kit with a blue and red cross in the middle, but have now released a white kit.

It is the first time they will wear a white shirt since playing Ipswich Town in 1979 when they faced each other in one of two legs in the Cup Winners’ Cup, which Ipswich won 2- 1.

Barcelona are expected to debut this shirt in their first pre-season friendly of the season against Arsenal in Los Angeles tonight (Wednesday) night local time.

The shirt has very little other detail with only the sponsors appearing in blue, and a red trim on the bottom of the sleeves.

Barcelona went through a series of fluorescent kits during the early stages of the 2010s, but appear to be moving away from those designs now.
