The Locker Room

LaLiga giants FC Barcelona have released their new away kit for the 2020/21 season, and it bears striking similarities to Kaizer Chiefs' 50-year anniversary strip.

On Friday, Barcelona and Nike combined to release the Blaugrana's away kit for next season, with the new strip sporting a predominantly black finish for only the third time in the club's history.

The kit, which is made from 100% polyester recycled materials, is complemented by a gold trimming on the sleeves and collar.

"'The colours are within' is the slogan chosen by FC Barcelona for the new 2020/21 away kit, which this year is black with gold details. The club chose this 'absence of colour' to show that Barca fans' heart are Blaugrana, no matter what is on the outside," an official statement from the club read.
