Spanish giants Barcelona have unveiled their new 2017/18 Nike home kit, which comes with an "updated interpretation" of the club's traditional stripes.

Barca's new shirt sponsor, Japanese company Rakuten, will appear on the Blaugrana's new kit from 1 June.

"The new FC Barcelona home kit is defined by an updated interpretation of the traditional Blaugrana stripes and Aeroswift technology, for cutting edge performance replete with contemporary detailing," an official press statement from Nike read.


"On the shirt, attenuating vertical red bands are cast against a deep royal blue to form the updated stripe composition. Detailing inspired by the club's history and culture can be seen on the collar, which is partially defined by the Catalan flag, the Senyera. On the inside of the shirt the word 'Forca' on the inner right sleeve and 'Barca' on the left remind of inner club pride."

Neymar was chosen as the club's player to introduce the new kit.
"Pulling on the new Barca kit for the first time creates a mixture of pride and optimism for the season ahead. It looks and feels like a modern uniform of sport," he explained.
