In the season 2019-2020, the form of “Barcelona” will undergo several significant changes. This is not about the classic colors of a football club, but about the basic design elements. Avoiding the usual image can cause a strong resonance among the conservative fans of the club, as the previous design is considered a business card of Barca. In addition, the new graphic elements used resemble the shape of the Croatian national team.
Photos of the sketches of the new ammunition appeared on Benjamin Kramp's social network Twitter (@ BenCrump84). However, official confirmation from the football club has not yet been received.
The home form of Barcelona 2019-2020 remains unchanged in blue garnet. However, it will not depict classic stripes, but squares in the style of a chessboard. Nike masters, the technical sponsor of the team, one of the largest corporations for the production of sportswear, continue to design. This season, Nike went on an experiment, abandoning the usual stripes. This decision is quite risky, since strips have been used in design for several decades. As fans will accept the new concept, time will tell.
A photo of the image of the new Barcelona form 2019-2020 appeared on Twitter by Benjamin Crump, the head of the marketing and procurement department of Fortis Sport, which manufactures clothing for sports, leisure, training and work for an individual client order. This suggests that the new form of “Barcelona” may go on sale before the start of the season.
The player’s ammunition is constituted by the unchanging three elements:
The shirt has a straight fit with a raglan sleeve. The central part from the lower edge to the neck is filled with "checkers" of blue-garnet color. Sleeves - plain, dark blue. The collar is even darker. A triangular inset depicting a fragment of the flag of Catalonia has been added at the bottom and top of the neck.
On the front of the T-shirt are the emblem of the sponsors Nike and Rakuten. The Japanese corporation has been cooperating with the team since 2016. The contract was signed for 8 years, so for several more seasons it will be possible to observe the name of this company in the form of "Barcelona". The inscription is made in white, which allows it to contrast well on the main dark shades. The emblem of the football club is located on the left.
Shorts are made in dark blue tones. And the leggings have a chess blue garnet print.
In the guest form of Barcelona in 2019-2020, the main color will be yellow. A two-tone blue garnet strip runs diagonally across the entire T-shirt from the upper left to the lower right.
The print of the emblem of the main sponsor Rakuten is located in the center. In guest form, it also contrasts with the basic tone. Additionally, the Nike logo and the emblem of the football club are located on the central part.
Spare ammunition, as well as the goalkeeper uniform, have not yet been made public. These types of equipment are usually different from home and away. Spare is used in special cases, when this need is agreed upon by the organizers of the matches and the leadership of the competing teams. The appearance of the goalkeeper is usually different from other players. So, for example, last season his equipment was made in black colors with bright stripes on the sleeves.
Coat of arms changes
The Barca press center announced that the club’s coat of arms will also be subjected to metamorphoses in the 2019-2020 season. At the headquarters of the team, the new design is considered more harmonious and vibrant. Changes in the image of the emblem are normal, and the Barcelona emblem has been modified several times. However, the latest adjustments were made back in 2002, that is, a modern image has been used for over 15 years.
The new logo is more adapted to modern trends and the use of digital technology. According to the authors, it will be more convenient to use it in the conditions of modern mass media, and it will be better perceived visually.
