New home kit for the 2013/14 season?
Pictures of what appears to be the new FC Barcelona kit for the 2013/14 season have emerged on social networks. The new kit, still manufactured by industry giants Nike, would go back to a more old fashioned red and blue stripes design, with a yellow v-neck collar. A very similar feel to the kit that saw the Blaugrana won the Champions League in 2011. The kit would also feature the new sponsor Qatar Airways, replacing Qatar foundation. Barcelona has been long known for not having any sponsor on their kit. In 2006, the club agreed to donate €1.5 million per year to UNICEF via the FC Barcelona Foundation. Barça ended their refusal of corporate sponsorship at the start of the 2011/12 season, with a 5-year €150m deal with Qatar Sports Investments. Qatar Foundation has been on the club’s shirt for the 2011/12 and 2012/13 seasons, and will be replaced by Qatar Airways starting next season.
