Barcelona, who’s nickname is Barca, wear home shirts of red and blue. After years of sponsor less shirts, starting in the 2006/07 season, Barcelona have opted for a sponsor logo on their kit, with the current one being Spotify. This gives the music streaming giant a huge platform for advertising its featured artists, with the artists’ logos replacing the Spotify one from time to time. Barca is one of the best club teams in the world today as they boast several high class footballers including Pedri, Gavi and Frenkie De Jong.

Barcelona 23/24 Home Kit
Barcelona brought back its pre-1990s look, featuring three wide stripes in front with red on the sides and blue in the middle, with the rest of the sides of the body panel going with the same blue shade. Its a classic design that dated back as far as 1912. The blue part of the shirt extends to the shoulder panel. The standard-cut sleeves opted for the red shade. The 2023/24 Barca Nike home relatively brightened up the navy compared to the last season, while doing the opposite for the red one. Released under the marketing banner of ‘Here, to lead the way,’ the shirt was inspired by the first women’s Barcelona side formed in 1971. This was reflected on the crest having the silhouette of a diamond.

2022/23 Barcelona Home Shirt
In 2022/23, Barca went with a Nike home shirt with a solid navy base but with heavy accents in vivid red and blue. The ever-formal navy coloured the raglan sleeves and the panel surrounding the round neckline. It also joined the traditional Blaugrana stripes in forming a tri-coloured striping pattern on the body panel, which, in turn, housed the Swoosh and Spotify wordmark in a classy shade of gold. An abstract application of varying colour intensities revealed a geometric pattern throughout the shirt. . This particular Barca home jersey marked the 25th anniversary of having the Swoosh brand as the club’s kit maker, in addition to being the first under new sponsor, Spotify.
2021/22 Barcelona Home Shirt
FC Barcelona’s Nike 2021-22 home kit certainly evoked some reaction because of its asymmetrical visuals. From the wearer’s perspective, the sleeves and a fifth of the body were blue and maroon on the left and right, respectively. The same colours formed the vertical stripes on the left chest and the relatively wider ones that composed the bottom half (producing an interrupted look) and the entire backside. Towards the right chest was the Maroon cross against the backdrop of maroon and blue pinstripes. Overall, the chest graphic took its cue from that of the team crest.
2020/21 Barcelona Home Shirt
Messi and company’s 2020/21 kit continued the Blaugrana tradition as it featured alternating vertical bands of deep red and deep blue, with thin gold strips acting as separations, across the shirt including the sleeves. The vertical bands were inspired by the successful 2011 Champions League Barcelona squad of which Lionel Messi was part of. The thin gold strips, on the other hand, were a reflection of the successful Barca squads of the 1920s. The 2020/21 season was the 10th anniversary of the 2011 Champions League finals victory and the season home kit clearly commemorated this achievement.

Men’s Barcelona Shirt History
Barcelona wore blue and red shirts in their inaugural match in 1900 with a vertically striped design the club has largely stuck with since then. The red and blue is contrasted with blue sleeves, shorts and socks. The red and blue kit would then become one of the most famous look in the world given the high degree of success of the football club. Different patterns, shades and designs have been applied to the red-and-blue striped look over the years to give the bespoke detail modern interpretations.
Barcelona Football Club was founded in 1899 by Joan Gamper a Swiss businessman, the club’s international nature has been a quality since the first days of its existence, as shown by still holding the original Anglican version of its name Futbol Club Barcelona, instead of the formal Spanish version Club de Futbol Barcelona. Barcelona play their home games at Camp Nou, Avenida Arstides Maillol, Barcelona, which is officially known as Spotify Camp Nou for commercial reasons.
The club is famous for not wearing sponsorship on their kits, going without from its inception until 2006 when the charity UNICEF was given the all-clear to be placed on the shirt. 2011-2012 is the first season a corporate sponsor has been featured for the first time in the club’s history, with the Qatar Foundation’s logo appearing.
