There is no way. What the hell


[deleted]

Nike is assigning this kit template to a lot of clubs. Hertha have the same exact one just blue and white. Don't you love modern football?


TheMexicanJuan

> Nike is assigning this kit template to a lot of clubs. they've been doing this for years and getting away with it. I go to nike stores and I have to literally look for the crest to tell which club is which. It's a borderline scam.


Roller95

A template is one thing, but if you make it this ugly, that’s on another level


[deleted]

I get for Nike it probably makes it a lot easier to mass produce kits if they use a template and there is almost surely an environmental argument to be made at some point in the production line. Begs the question why we need new kits every year anyway. But I find even a template is already a complete joke. Nike doesn't have enough Kombucha drinking hipster designers who can create more than 3 kit styles? What are we doing here?


LilHalwaPoori

I wouldn't mind the templates if they were actually good..


[deleted]

If Barcelona fans don't mind wearing Hertha BSC kits, fine by me 😎


derajydac

Barca fans didn't mind wearing shit to promote human rights abusers. They'll wear anything at this point.


AzarinIsard

> Begs the question why we need new kits every year anyway. Money, got to shake down your loyal fans and make them feel required to have the latest kit. Same reason why there's yearly EA Sports games where they barely change anything (even some *bugs* span multiple generations) when they could easily have done it via DLC and updates. Last thing they want is for fans to be buying fewer kits, even if it is more sustainable for the planet. > Nike doesn't have enough Kombucha drinking hipster designers who can create more than 3 kit styles? What are we doing here? I really doubt it's that, the design cost will be insignificant when you're producing many millions of kits. My hunch would be Nike want you to look at these kits and *know* it's a Nike kit. They want you to see a Barca flavoured Nike shirt, rather than a unique Barca style made by Nike, you know? They're trying to usurp the clubs and make the manufacturer the most important part of the kit.


NicoloBarella23

[Us too lmao](https://gyazo.com/e4e6828d0f7a608dfd83e615cab9b722)


[deleted]

Still mourning that Inter badge. How could they take one of the most brilliant bits of design and make it look like that? :(


ajof25

Oh wow, and I actually liked yours from last year, ( as much as a Milan fan can like an inter jersey I guess)


a_critical_person

Shoot me


ayotui

Surely a club as big as Barca can get a non-template kit. Literally no excuse for them to be looking like this.


adokretz

I remember one year Spurs had a away kit that was the same as Barcas training kit. [Nike are ruthless](https://twitter.com/ESPNFC/status/1020247660660428802?t=3GewuT8Xy8dJlRFY1ARO_A&s=19)


aroninho

What the hell lmao And Dele looks so proud too


adokretz

Lol yep real big boy energy


AlexKangaroo

Producing a template and just re-colouring it for different teams isn't something new. Adidas did it a couple of seasons ago with Germany, Sweden and Union Berlin atleast. The difference was that shirt was really good looking. Nike and Puma have completely bottled their template this and last season.


hornpub1818

Barca need to drop Nike. They produce absolute garbage for them almost every single year.


[deleted]

Eh, that seems an exxageration. 2005/2006 barca was amazing, 2008 was very cool redesign, 2010 (the unicef one) was also very good looking, 2014 also great shirt (qatar airways sponsor). Also, I think clubs have a lot to say about their kit, it's not like Nike can come up with bs designs. Clubs co design, design or anyway have to approve whatever is proposed.


joha2785

It says something that you have to go 8 years back tho


Rickcampbell98

I like 20/21 but these last 2 have been really shit.


Froggyspirits

That's some case of short term memory you got there. In the 2010s, every one of Barça home kits was undeniably good-looking except for the 12/13 and 19/20 editions. Their 20/21 kit was pretty quaint as well, being heavily based on the 10/11 kit worn by arguably the most powerful team in the history of club football. It was only starting from last season that Nike spat out an ugly Barça home kit for two years in a row.


aroninho

I don't know, I think 12/13 was a pretty creative, but at the same time cool design It's one of my Barcelona favorites in recent times actually


migicar9

This is awful, looks like a kid drew it


cannacanna

Looks like a knockoff


TigerBasket

I am disgusted


Redbullsnation

What the fuck


Daybreak_99

My reaction


VDV23

Would have looked great if not that solid blue across the shoulders


sirius2492

Apparently Tebas said they couldn't afford to put the colours on the shoulder too.


huazzy

HOW IS PSG AFFORDING THIS ON THEIRS?!


xcore21z

At this point it isn't a secret that they pay Nike to become a marque brand for them just see how PSG of all team got the Nike Jordan brand while other just use plain Nike


LaNNo56

It makes it look like 20€ running shirt...


Aethien

Would've been a mess even then, adding a 3rd colour stripe for no reason.


too_damn_fast

The dark blue has been used before. [It comes from this.](https://data.nssmag.com/images/galleries/19953/barcelona-centenario.jpg)


z0rg83

that shirt was incredible, one of my all time favourites


Mihnea24_03

No sponsor gigachads


Y0RKC1TY

Thats a strong head of hair. What happened?


Elfotografoalocado

But three color stripes? I've never seen that in my life!


PasuljsKolenicom

It works a lot better because of the collar, you can’t see the darker blue part under the neck.


VDV23

No, I mean that solid color across shouldn't have been there at all. Just vertical stripes in 2 colors


Aethien

Then I agree, clubs with iconic shirts should keep it simple. Barca somehow insists on experimenting and doing weird shit.


anonymous38760

I agree, the jersey just looks a little off


PasuljsKolenicom

I really like the colors on this one, kinda looks retro. But they didn’t incorporate the darker blue on top of the kit very well, it just looks clumsy.


Sithgooner

Nice as a training kit, horrible match day kit.


theyeeterofyeetsberg

And all of a sudden, Lewandowski wants to stay at Bayern 2015/16 Barca kits were peak. They've declined ever since


Topblokelikehodgey

More like 2010-11


Cbrlui

Nowhere to go but down after those


_Jazzlife_

The 20-21 kits were lit too. That home jersey which was a reminder of the 10-11 jersey and the Black & Gold away jersey🥵


The_Dumblebee

06, 11, 15, 21 are the best


godly_tit_hunter

That is the one with hoops. I hated that.


AspiringAltruist76

I think their 2011/12 kit was the quintessential Barcelona look. 2018/19 was a close second.


cr7momo16

14/15 kits>>>


UpstairsJoke0

Surely you mean 14/15? 15/16 was the hooped kit and was very unpopular.


Rickcampbell98

I have a soft spot for 12/13 as well with the gradient.


HAWmaro

the 2020/2021 ones were amazing as well tbh.


[deleted]

Nah 08/09 >>


aroninho

That's a real classic right there, as simple as it can be


[deleted]

Yup, it was clean and [iconic](https://www.footballkitarchive.com/fc-barcelona-2008-09-home-kit/)


Fati25

2015/16 kit was dogshit


Kakaphr4kt

except for the sponsor.


[deleted]

Hertha suffer the same fate. Nike assigned the same template to us, looks like shit.


varunadi

Now I'm afraid what they'll do with the Chelsea kit


RonanB17

It’s already been leaked it looks good


NilsFanck

the "3" being gone alone is a massive improvement


mattyMbruh

They’ve already been leaked, all the same template as this but the colour on the 3rd is beautiful


varunadi

Source, do you have a link? I might've missed it


Grosly_Incandescent

FDJ won't need pushing out after seeing this


Rickcampbell98

If he didn't try to leave after last years one then he won't for this years lol, I'm glad messi never spent even a second in that piece of shit kit.


SebastianOwenR1

The Spotify logo isn’t as bad as I envisioned it being.


Hech15

That's probably the best part of the kit


orcasaremuslims

just wait when barca x BTS comes around


The_Dumblebee

Barca fans about to tell BTS stan that Real Madrid hates BTS.


orcasaremuslims

sentiago bernabeu will colapse in like no time after that.


M_Vid

Everything around it is a problem tho


retxed24

I absolutely *hate* the fact that the Spotify logo is slightly tilted. Doesn’t show here too much but I still despise it.


RexorFWT

Ewwww. Not even like Crystal Palace


tommoex

That arch and blue shoulders just looks terrible imo.


TheMexicanJuan

[Looks like they're wearing a Burkini](https://www.burkiniremsa.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Am%C3%A9lie-Burkini.jpg.webp)


Dramatic-Magician825

I don’t think they look terrible except for the blue shoulders, but this just isn’t Barcelona.


MowMyLawn69

Perhaps they should drop them in the bin, where they belong.


adamjld

Christ.. they are terrible


AandromydA

It looks really good alone but when they wear it it looks weird


Hoodxd

Worst Barcelona home kit i’ve seen in my life


L10M7

Have you seen this season’s home kit lol.


Kitchen-Pangolin-973

I really like the current one.


UpstairsJoke0

Not worse than the hooped shirt, the chequered shirt, or the jester kit from this year.


mahdiiick

No it’s not lol. Not great but better than the ones we had this past season


Rickcampbell98

Guess you didn't watch them play this year then lol.


S7ORM7ROOPER_30

Nike's using this template for a lot of clubs. That solid blue border on the top totally ruined the shirt imo. Looks better than last season's, but still not that good. For me, the 2015/16 as well as 2020/21 kits were the best from Nike for Barça in recent years.


LilHalwaPoori

How could a kit that looked so good in leaks look so shit irl..


Vallado

Not keen on the shoulder design Nike have been using across all their kits for the upcoming season. But I think this Barca one probably looks the worst (in comparison with Liverpool for example) but it compromises the stripes.


anonymous38760

I think the stripes look nice, but they needed to wrap around the entire kit, instead of the navy across the shoulders. Just my opinion tho


Vallado

Yeah I agree! The stripes are pastel equivalents of their normal colours, and look really nice. Shame about the other part of the kit because it had the potential to be great otherwise.


Nature__Boy

That is atrocious, Nike are an absolute disgrace these days


firthy

*Finally*. Less Palace like.


[deleted]

What a terrible day to have eyes


Rvntlt1906

The thing is awful, Nike's template only worsens it.


KingKong1250

The spotify logo fresh af though, can’t lie. W sponsor


TuvixWasMurderedR1P

lol you being sarcastic, I hope. I almost made a comment about how I hated that.


KingKong1250

Matter of opinion I suppose, think the actual kit design makes it look worse but it is a pretty clean font.


No-Face-2000

[Better pictures](https://www.reddit.com/r/Barca/comments/v3tich/the_home_kit_for_the_202223_has_been_officially/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=) Idk. Looks good to me. Don’t really get the reactions here.


[deleted]

I actually like it as well, will buy it if I can get it without the sponsor!


Iemand-Niemand

Idk, with Pique and Busi they’re tall so the amount of dark blue shoulders to the actual Barca inspired part is smaller, whereas with Pedri, it’s a lot of dark blue and not a whole lot of BlauGrana


anonymous38760

Thank you 😊


lonelyswe

absolutely awful


alexLAD

Feels retro


anonymous38760

I believe they said they were inspired by the ‘93 seasons home kit


toalome

i hate barca and i hate spotify but i kinda don’t mind this?


shreychopra

\- \* \- = +


jay_alfred_prufrock

This is horrible. Dark blue out of nowhere is bad enough but making it the dominant color is just stupid.


TjeefGuevarra

You know you fucked up when the Spotify logo is the best part of your kit


real_change30

Looking good ngl


auctus10

My first reaction was 'eww wtf'. I think people will be totally divided on this, no middle ground


TuvixWasMurderedR1P

If this comment section is any indication, it’s not a very even split. Most think it’s ugly.


auctus10

As it should be. It looks bad.


real_change30

Better than boring madrid white jersey all years tbh.


sarexxz

Next year make an orange home kit


real_change30

I like Pink


anonymous38760

I like the colors a lot, but it just looks a little weird to me, idk


blindfrankie

Don’t see everyone’s problem with it. Reminds me a lot of the 2000 kit and 2003 kit, I love them both. Something different and feels retro


Melosh7

I do like it


BlueCode6

Nike make disgusting shirts. I am kinda glad it us not personal, I thought they just hated atleti


LewsTherin177

Colors look very 1990s. Almost expect to see Rivaldo or Kluivert in them.


fahad_k91

Damn looks like im the only one liking the kit anyway you are welcome laporta i just subscribed to spotify last month


narraThor

I.. like it but it's not an instant classic. After our current fiasco of a kit, this will be much better. It's youthful and dynamic and there's no idiocy like clown pants or that weird asymmetry they went for. I think the reactions here are gonna change in time, it'll grow on a lot of folks.


mattyMbruh

Don’t see the hate I love it myself, lots of Nike teams are having that template if you look at leaks - Atletico’s home looks good


thefogdog

It looks like a cape should follow behind.


HH_31_J

Nice kit.


monkaXxxx

4 seasons away from pride shirt , way to go Barca .. Btw anything is better from previous seasons home kit..


TuvixWasMurderedR1P

Ugly AF


kilari7

That looks terrible dafaq?


boye_

Ugliest kit of the season, without having seen most... Jesus christ, that is horrible!


FatWalcott

No fucking way that's real. Looks horrifying


Altruistic_Total_576

awful


dennisixa

the only nice thing is the sponsor's logo


JPVazLouro_SLB

Damn, that looks absolutely terrible, it's like a regular blue t-shirt with a big sticker in the middle


CheekyRubberDuck

It's awful, nike is the worst!


themanyfaceasian

Upvote so ppl can see the horrid design


mahdiiick

Waiting for the away shirts


monkaXxxx

Ok but jeez dont wear it backwards..


tigralfrosie

This is going to totally suit anyone with rounded shoulders and a beer belly. And if you don't have those, this shirt will give you them.


MorbidoeBagnato

Disgusting


orcasaremuslims

whate the fuck is tha? looks like when a water touch gasolin.


RepresentativeNo3860

Can't even copy the crystal palace kits properly smh..


[deleted]

Looks like you could have bought this for 1500 pesetas on a Majorcan beach from a man shouting ‘Michael Owen, Michael Owen’ in 1998


Daybreak_99

No offence but the kit looks…..weird.


javierich0

It looks like they are wearing a towel to cover their boobs.


stupididity

Barcelona should pick them back up


HarHenGeoAma62818

Can’t see many people wanting this until they get some new decent signings for the back


ChipChrome-

Wtf is this


Your-Pal-Dave

How do Nike get it so so wrong


Rava23

I hate kits templates


DEUK_96

Surely that's a training kit?


AlexCosty1991

and people criticise Puma for their poor designs.


FuhhCough

Shoulders totally fucked it. Looks decent on a hanger, but awful on the players.


rocketboy44

spotify logo should be lower down


lastdyingbreed_01

Honestly very conflicted lol


lrzbca

Why this ? What this ? How this ?


Salt_Procedure_9353

ugly af


urangminang

Made in China.


Fearless-Video7989

Looks like a carpet or something lol.


cr7momo16

I’m sorry but those are hideous lmao c’monnnn


ranting_madman

There’s so much to unpack here…. The worst offender is the fact that there are two shades of blue stripes. And then the ugly ass shoulders. First they play this season in Levante kits, and now this? Who’s designs this shit?


jorgekiko

navy shoulder and neck area just throw the whole thing off


DadsSloppyGravyAnus

F


Gl0nki

Aighit imma go cancel my Spotify premium


__Reddit_User

The arch ruins what could have been a good kit


shaka_bruh

Not usually a fan of Nike’s kits but this looks dope. I’m getting 04-05 vibes from this though the Spotify logo feels very anachronistic


LordSpeechLeSs

The weird lighting/lack of warm light makes the kit look way worse than it is. When they play in the sunny day time or at night, it'll look better.


pappabrun

Thanks, i hate it


mihaicbnk

damn, ugly as helllll


TheMexicanJuan

[Looks like they're wearing a Burkini](https://www.burkiniremsa.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Am%C3%A9lie-Burkini.jpg.webp)


LionelBenzema

Last year was clownish this year is just ugly


ZofTheNorth

What the fuck is this?


Pewds_Minecraft

16/17 was peak design. From there it only declined


R1KM4N

I like it other than the sleeves and top section. If the stripes went all the way up and round it would be pretty nice, unfortunately it just looks like a training top.


midniteauth0r

It looks like one of those fake jerseys your Granny brings ya home from her holiday to Lanzarote


[deleted]

Pedri's trim might actually be worse than Foden's lmao


Frisko305

Why does it look like they have them on backwards?


no_gf_till20

Not fan of that chest arc. so the dominant color is dark....just like our future.. *NIKE* is so realistic about the condition of the club


TolvloT

I really thought this was r/soccercirclejerk


Kemosabe2712

I think this is better than this season


vulturevan

looks like something Jeff Jarrett would wear


FedeValverde15

This looks amazing, don't know what you guys are on about


Dhtekzz

Ugly as fuck.


oldfossilfrommars

IDK, the new kits look good to me.


Sem073

Why can't we just release normal shirts anymore. Fuck me.


Yiggity_Yins

Looks like a training kit


georgesoo

Eeewwwwww
