Barcelona drop pink & green third kit

The Locker Room

FC Barcelona and Nike have unveiled a pink and green third-kit for the 2020/21 season with captain Lionel Messi featured in the official launch.

The Spanish giants who have restored to calm in recent days since the announcement that Messi would remain for the upcoming season have often taken unusual approaches to their third kits in recent times.

In what is arguably to attract the attention of non-football followers and a younger generation of consumers, their latest offering is inspired by the Mediterranean coast.

"Dawn is breaking in Barcelona, the sun is starting to come out and the city is enshrouded in different tones: the morning pink and the green-blue of the sea create the bright, vibrant, Mediterranean landscape that was the inspiration behind the new FC Barcelona third kit for the 2020/21 season,” their statement read.

"These two colours also symbolically reflect the technology used in its manufacture to produce an extremely lightweight, elastic, and breathable fabric.

"The predominantly pink shirt represents the lightness of the fabric and the freedom of movement that entails, while the green trim reflects its breathability and sweat absorption, as well as the fresh sensation it produces."

The jersey made of 100% recyclable materials to decrease the carbon footprint the club will only be available at Barcelona official physical and online stores.
