The new third jersey is unlike any other material made before as it combines different shades of pink to make an aesthetic attire that should surely please the supporters.

Unlike the away kit for the new season which is throwback to the 2005/06 attire worn in the era that signalled the Catalan dominance of Europe, the new third strip is more restropective.

A statement on the Nike official website describes the reason for the change of colour.

Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director Pete Hoppins also gave more insight to the thought process and why a new approach was taken to the new jersey.

He said, “We believe the kit is bold and exciting and therefore ideally suited to FC Barcelona.

“The football club is part of the fabric of Barcelona; its influence is visible in every avenue and plaza, and that passion really inspired the team’s 2018-19 collection.”

The new attire will be an alternate for the earlier released home and away kits.

The new jersey of Barcelona embodies some of the characteristics of the Manchester United third jersey which is also pink.
