The new second strip for the 2011-12 season will go on sale on Tuesday July 5th at the Club Superstore and from the official Club website.
One of the surprises of the new season will be the team’s new all black second kit – a
new kit that they will be wearing in both domestic and European competitions this year. The new kit
will go on sale from Tuesday and will be available at the Club Super star and via the website at
Both the first and second strips for the new season are of a contemporary design and
made from recycled fabric, which will reduce the environmental impact of their production, as well
as bring a number of advantages for the players because of their light weight. The new second strip
is all black -shirt, shorts and socks with just a single yellow space for the sponsors Qatar
Foundation and UNICEF, as well as the players’ name and number. A fine grey line from the
neck to the sleeve puts the final note on this new shirt.
First time in black
This is the first time that Barça will have played in black and Nike have made a bold new
design for the kit, following on from last year’s spectacular green shirts, which will be
retained as the third strip,
Second strips for memorable moments
The team’s second strip has been used on a number of memorable occasions over
the years, for example in the 2009-10 World Club Cup final in Abu Dhabi in 2009, when Messi scored
the winning goal in the mango coloured second strip . A few months earlier Iniesta had set up the
treble with his all-important goal at Stamford Bridge wearing the yellow second strip.
Following the spectacular colours of the second strip over the last few years, the fans will
now have to get used to the more restrained black kit for next season.
