The time is finally here. Barcelona has dropped their away jersey and it does not disappoint. The historic club launched their away jersey just a few days ago and its gold color and accents are certainly in a league of their own. Barcelona and Nike have teamed up to launch their latest away jersey with a story built in rich sports history.

The Inspiration

Barcelona is known for far more than its rich soccer history. A city that has been founded by artists, explorers, and athletic endeavors, Nike wanted to capture the essence of one of the most historic events to hit the city. The 1992 Barcelona Summer Olympics were memorable, show-stopping, and record breaking for the historic city. Why not celebrate the 30th anniversary in the latest kit from the club?

Going for Gold

Barcelona’s 22/23 Away Kit is Inspired by Olympic Gold

 The Olympic games are the pinnacle of sporting events across the globe. Athletes come from far and wide in the hopes to earn one thing, a gold medal. A completely gold cover throughout the jersey’s entirety is meant to serve as a symbol of the gold won at the momentous event. The beauty of the latest jersey from Barcelona is its story is a true testament to the history of the city. However, Barcelona also wanted to nod to the recent success of the Barcelona women with this touch of gold as well. Recent league championships and Champions League appearances have served as an inspiration for the club and its latest design. 

An Olympic Touch

Like I said, this jersey has been inspired by gold medals, but the intricate sleeve detail is something worth noting. In yet another nod to the Olympics, the away jersey has been designed with sleeve collars featuring the colors of the five olympic rings. This subtle color detail is just one of the many small intricate details that make this jersey so unique. 

Mapped Out

The details of this jersey are so fine and intricate and continue to tell the story of this historical city. In this jersey we see a sublimated map of Barcelona through fine stitching throughout the entirety of the jersey. Details like the map of the city is certainly the icing on the cake of an already detail oriented kit and continues to tell the story of the city past and present. 


The latest away jersey from Barcelona and Nike continues to push the technology of the game into the future. Designed with Nike’s signature Vaporknit template, this jersey is just a preview into the technology that will be featured on the jerseys of this year’s World Cup. The latest update in technology is more breathable and fitted that makes way for dynamic movement and cooler temperatures. Also designed with Dri-FIT ADV technology, this jersey is more breathable and moisture resistant than ever. Don’t worry these jerseys are also environmentally sustainable. Made of 100% recycled polyester fabric, you’ll be cool on the pitch and saving the planet one jersey at a time.

Final Thoughts

Barcelona has also been on the forefront of jersey and kit design, but this year’s away jersey design certainly has cemented their place in the history books. Telling a story that is bigger than the club is unique and beyond any expectations for a new away kit. Also featuring the latest jersey technology from Nike, this jersey is definitely one that is made for the people.
