Home / La Liga / Barca Away Long Sleeve Away Jersey 2010-2011 Review


Currently in third place in the La Liga table, FCB is looking to take out all opponents with such an all-star lineup. Also, Barcelona has come out with a new away jersey for the 2010-2011 season.

As always, the FCB patch and blue and red stripe are present on the front of the jersey with the standard Dri-Fit technology. This is an authentic jersey designed to all the specifications of the actual players, and the La Liga patch on the right sleeve looks good and is double stitched so it won’t come loose in the washing machine. On the left sleeve is the club’s motto: Mes Que un Club which is Spanish for more than a club. To the Catalans, FCB isn’t just a football club; it’s a major part of the Catalan national culture. Catalans live and die for Barcelona football, and you can feel the sense of defiance and strength permeating from the jersey. Across the front the club is continuing to showing its support for UNICEF. Barca teamed up with the organization benefitting children in developing countries in 2006. The club has been donating at least 1.5million Euros each year for children that are affected by HIV/AIDS.

Barca has been known for the traditional blue and red stripes but in recent years they have had some wild away and third kit jerseys. Some previous colors include highlighter yellow, gold, orange, and a somewhat salmon looking color. And this cool mint green on the new away jersey actually seems to be a throwback from the early 90s which was the end of the stabilization years for the Club.

Some say it looks ugly and honestly it may be; but it should be appreciated that the club is looking back to a time when Barcelona became supreme in Spain and the rest of Europe. The jersey is high quality the colors are vibrant, and it’s built to last. The long sleeved design will help to keep you warm and the Dri-Fit fabric , while not water proof, will serve to break the wind on a blustery day. In all honesty, its popularity will probably depend more on how many goal Lionel Messi slots in wearing it than anything else.
