Barcelona unveil ‘electric blue’ 3rd kit, to be worn v Roma tomorrow night

Barcelona have unveiled their third kit for this season, which will make its debut in the Champions League tomorrow tonight.

To go with their traditional blaugrana home shirt and yellow away shirt, this third kit is quite a bright and exciting number, described as ‘electric blue’ but the club’s website.

The colour is similar in colour to the 2008 away shirt (synonymous with Ronaldinho’s final season), but is different in design: where the 2008 away shirt was vertically striped, this third kit is plain, with a black fade away on the sleeves and on the bottom of the shorts, which continues onto the socks, in a similar style to the ‘tequila sunrise’ shirt of 2013.

Tomorrow night’s game at Roma is an opportune moment to unveil the shirt: with Roma’s home shirt clashing with Barcelona’s home one, blue is probably the best colour to play in for this particular game.
