Team Barcelona has been riding a wave as the Catalan Giants clinched the second spot in the La Liga with only 3 points separating them from crown bearers, Real Madrid. Inspiring Messi, Neymar and the squad to go even further this season is the new FC Barcelona kit. An update on the traditional Blaugrana design, the jersey features aerodynamic red vertical stripes, mimicking a Doppler effect as the players speed by defenses. The club’s history is reflected in the yellow and red detailing around the neck that’s defined by the colours of the Senyera, the Catalan flag. Nike’s AeroSwift technology fuses breathability and mobility while raglan sleeves and side insets let players move naturally on the field. Club detailing adds pride with the club crest on the left side of the chest and the words “Força” and “Barça” on the inner right and left sleeves respectively.
Bayern Munich has a legacy of domination, and this season’s jersey honours its history of victory. Inspired by the classic ‘70s jersey worn by legends like Franz Beckenbauer and Gerd Muller who went on to win the European Cup three times in a row, the jersey features a ventilated climacool® fabric that keeps players cool and dry. The engineered wide red and slim stripes harken back to the iconic 1974 jersey design, while a ribbed crewneck and ribbed cuffs ensure comfort and a perfect fit. The club’s crest along with 4 stars is embroidered on the left side of the chest, as the words ‘Bayern München’ and the club motto ‘Mia San Mia’ (We are who we are) appear on the upper back. The classic adidas 3 Stripes on the shoulders round off the look.
Overcoming all obstacles, Manchester City has risen to claim the third spot on the podium, securing their place in the Champions League. Invigorated by the new manager, Pep Guardiola, the Citizens will be sporting the new sky blue jersey as they step onto the field in the coming season. Based on an updated Nike Vapor template with subtle changes to the lateral insets, the jersey features Nike’s AeroSwift tech fabric that enhances ventilation along with a natural range of motion. Its slim cut creates a streamlined fit while a ribbed collar ensures comfort in the heat of the game. The club crest is embroidered on the left side of the chest, as the word ‘City’ appears knitted into the back of the neck. Subtle white detailing on the side insets and around the neck completes this look.
Glowing with their French Cup victory and charged up with hopes for the transfer of speedster Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Paris Saint Germain bears a rekindled spirit as it heads into the new Ligue 1 season. Keeping with this air of momentum is the new jersey that introduces a bold design with eye-catching coloured sleeves. The pinstripe design from the previous season is replaced with a bold single red stripe down the front without the white borders from before. The sleeves combine a dark blue base with thin red stripes to create a purple look. Enabling players to charge down the field in comfort is Nike’s AeroSwift tech fabric that combines mobility and breathability. Its raglan sleeves and side insets enhance natural movement while a rib collar with red detailing ensures a lasting fit. The PSG club crest appears on the left side of the chest as the word ‘Paris’ is knitted into the back of the neck.
