After a month of international football with Italy and Argentina winning the titles in Euro 2020 and Copa America 2021 respectively, the focus has now returned to club football.
Spanish giants Barcelona are in the middle of financial turmoil as they are yet to re-sign their club captain and legend Lionel Messi. They have also been not able to register any of their new signings Sergio Aguero, Eric Garcia and Memphis Depay.
However, Barcelona have now released their new away kit for the 2021-22 season. They have designed the jersey in a way to promote women’s empowerment.
Barcelona wrote on their official website: “This year celebrates a very important milestone, as it commemorates the 50th anniversary of the game played on December 25, 1970 at the Camp Nou by the women’s team Selecció Ciutat de Barcelona, considered the origin of Barça women’s football set up. To celebrate that milestone, a few of those pioneers who played at the Stadium have been incorporated into the campaign to launch the new kit together with Barça Women’s players Aitana Bonmatí, Jennifer Hermoso, Marta Torrejón, Alexia Putellas and Caroline Graham Hansen.”
The club also states that 100% recycled polyester has been used to produce the kits.
