It is the first time when there are neither horizontal nor vertical stripes on the FCB's kit. Moreover, the fans have already noticed some clear similarities with the Croatia national team shirt.
Barca players seem to be pleased with the new-looked kit they are getting.
"I like it a lot, I hope the fans do as well," Marca-Andre ter Stegen said as per Sport. "I hope it will help us win titles and be a part of our success next season."
"This kit is new and exciting, it has a different design, but it perfectly represents the club and the special bond that exists between the club and its fans," Gerard Pique who posed as a model for the shirt added.
"We want to wear this shirt as far as possible in all competitions," said Sergi Roberto expressing the hopes of all Barca fans.
Finally, Barca starlet Rique Puig reckons that it's more about the football Blaugrana will be showing on the pitch than the kit they will be wearing: "If we remain faithful to our way of understanding football, the titles will arrive and I hope to contribute my grain of sand."
