Set to be launched after the European Championship in the summer, the new Barcelona Away kit will be anything but dull if the latest images that have circulated online are correct. Barcelona-based sports newspaper Mundo Deportivo has confirmed the unprecedented color choice of the Barcelona 2016-2017 away kit to be purple and pink.
Whereas purple has so far not been used for a Barcelona match jersey, an almost identical combination as the ‘Purple Dynasty / Hyper Pink’ of the Barcelona 16-17 away kit was used for the Barcelona training jersey in the second half of the 2014-15 season. A sign of things to come, the purple / pink Barcelona 2015 training shirt was popular among supporters.
Although the colors are almost exactly the same, it’s safe to expect the Barcelona 2016-2017 away kit to boast a much more expressive overall look. For example, touches of dark blue will be incorporated to add to the Purple Dynasty base color.
The shorts of the new Barcelona away football kit will also be purple and pink. Following another scheme introduced by Nike lately, the striking appearance of the new Barcelona away kit will be completed with pink socks.
