The classy yellow shirt has a strip in traditional ‘blaugrana’ colours in a throwback to the away kit worn in 1979, which marks the 40th anniversary of La Masia.

The new kit will be worn with yellow or blue shorts. 

La Masia product and Barcelona star Sergi Roberto said: “It is not an accident that La Masia has given the world so many great players.

“It is a special place with a unique philosophy and I am pleased this new away kit highlights the academy. Forty years of work at La Masia really is something worth celebrating.”

Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director Pete Hoppins added: “Barça’s away kit from ’79 is a cult classic and with us wanting to pay homage to La Masia, it made perfect sense to use a kit from its founding year as the starting point.

“What you get is this beautiful vintage Barça design merged with all the benefits of modern technology.

“La Masia has produced so many iconic players and it remains an honour to produce kits for them.”
