Football Kit News: FC Barcelona Release Special El Clasico Shirt
FC Barcelona made football kit news headlines as they unveiled a brand new kit for this season's El Clasico. The kit, which will only be worn by the Blaugrana when they take on arch rivals Real Madrid at home later this year, was launched by the club's legendary former captain Carlos Puyol.
The arrival of this shirt was somewhat out of the blue as leaked football kits news sources didn't provide any hints towards Barca's plans of releasing a new kit. Barcelona and Nike are marketing this shirt under the tagline' Una samarreta ens agermana’ (‘One shirt unites us’).

We have seen the yellow and red stripes of the Catalan Senyera flag in Barca's away jerseys before. But, the new shirt amalgamates the Senyera colours with the traditional blue and red of the Barcelona home shirt. This is an unprecedented tribute to the club's Catalan heritage.
The yellow collar, however, is not a uncommon sight in Barcelona home jerseys. Placement and design of the Nike swoosh and the Barcelona emblem also didn't deviate from the customary. A pair of blue shorts and socks complement the El Clasico special edition shirt.
