Nike sportswear company has just announced its 2019/2020 home team shirt of Barcelona. Accordingly, Barca will no longer use the traditional striped shirt pattern, instead of a chessboard design inspired by the Eixample district in Catalonia. For the first time in the 119-year history of the team, traditional stripes will be replaced by checkered squares. Barca claims they are inspired by the Eixample district, home to the great architect Antoni Gaudi.
This style is very similar to the famous Croatian jersey. The sleeve is still dark blue while the front of the collar appears with the Catalan flag.
Midfielder Gerard Pique commented that this shirt is a new and interesting thing. This shirt may be different but still carry 100% of Barca quality. What is more amazing is that this design shows the bond between the club and the fans and the people who are helping Catalonia grow. Even so, this shirt has received a lot of negative reactions from Barca fans.
The fans of this club are extremely angry. They expressed that they did not need such a controversial new shirt. What they want is a coach to lead the team up. Another fan expressed bad clothes for Barcelona. He thinks that this seems to be a good reason to break up with Ivan Rakitic and send good luck to Crotialona.
Nicholas Waititu account writes that the jersey cannot win the championship. The club he loves the most is Barca and the player he likes the most is Messi but he doesn’t like Barca’s clothes. This is always a bad thing.
