Nike and FC Barcelona have today unveiled a special mashup jersey to mark the 20th anniversary of their partnership.
The period has been a golden era of success for the Spanish club, winning 10 league titles, four continental crowns and more. This special-edition jersey nods to the legends of the era by incorporating aspects of every home FC Barcelona shirt of the last two decades.
The jersey, which won’t be worn by the players on the pitch, fuses numerous iterations of the club’s famous stripes on the front, back and sleeves.
“We wanted to do something different to celebrate the 20th anniversary. The main challenge was ensuring all the previous shirts were represented, but also that each one was carefully placed,” said Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “We had to be mindful of the overall design, rather than just placing each one anywhere on the garment.”
The Barça x Nike 20th Anniversary jersey will be available November 21 on nike.com and at select retailers.
