Radical change for Barça when it comes to choosing their second kit for next season. Of the white of the present course it goes to black for the 2024-2025 academic year. SPORT reveals what the alternative clothing will be like for the Barça team.
If the white of this course, used a few days ago in Villarreal, was a real ‘boom’ when SPORT also revealed it, the decision to bet on black will be more familiar to fansWell, so far this century it has already been done on several occasions.
Black is the great and only protagonist of a shirt that will only have two peculiarities: a Barça stripe around the neck and another two on the sides. Nothing else. The ‘Spotify’ logo will also change color, as it will become red. This season the symbol of that company is white on the first shirt and blue on the second.
In the past, four other times Barça chose the color black to dress its players. In the 2011-12 season, Pep Guardiola’s last as coach, Barça opted for the first time for black on their second shirt. It was a very austere design in which, apart from the black, only the phosphor yellow of the ‘sponsor’ and the Nike shield could be seen.
The following course, that same shirt would become the third. Until then, the usual thing was that the second kit of a year was the third of the next campaign. But in 2013 the specific figure of a third ‘kit’ was created to all effects.
In the 2013-14 campaign, black was also the protagonist of the third shirt. That design was also very minimalist, although it had some fine lines of fluorescent yellow on the sides. Another detail was that on the back of the neck there was La Senyera.
For the last time to date, Barça dressed in black in the 2020-2021 campaign He did it a total of eight times. It was the second kit and the black was complemented by gold, present on the sleeves, collar, crest, and logos. Both those of Barça and Nike as well as Rakuten and Beko. That year Koeman’s team would win the Copa del Rey, although the outfit chosen for the La Cartuja final against Athletic was that of La Senyera.
Total, Barça has played 20 games wearing black: 12 in the League, six in the Champions League, one in the Copa del Rey and one friendly.
