Nike and FC Barcelona have been working together for 20 years and the two have definitely been successful, with Barcelona winning 10 Spanish league titles, four continental crowns and not to forget the host of other silverware.
To mark the 20th anniversary, Nike are releasing a commemorative jersey featuring a style mash-up of every home jersey from the last 20 years. The limited-edition jersey will not be worn on the pitch.
“This idea really came out of the blue,” says Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “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. 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.
