The Spanish giants sent shockwaves around the globe with the unveiling of their home kit for the new campaign.

Instead of the traditional vertical stripes that Barca normally don on their gear, the club made a significant amendment, opting for a checkerboard-esque design.

The club took to their official social media accounts to unveil the yellow jersey, which serves to pay homage to the club's famous youth academy, La Masia.

Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director Pete Hoppins revealed that the new jersey binds the best of Barca's classic away kit from the late 1970's as well as the "benefits of modern technology".

"Barca’s away kit from ’79 is a cult classic and with us wanting to pay homage to La Masia, it made perfect sense to use a kit from its founding year as the starting point.

"What you get is this beautiful vintage Barça design merged with all the benefits of modern technology. La Masia has produced so many iconic players and it remains an honour to produce kits for them," the statement concluded.
