Both kits for the new season are a nod to the 1992 Games held in the city

Barcelona released their second strip for the 2022-23 season on Monday, with the gold kit a nod to the Olympic Games held in the city 30 years ago.

Barça explained:

"The second kit for the 2022-23 season, like the first, is inspired by the Olympics. It focuses on some of the most iconic elements of the Games, such as the Olympic rings and gold medals, the most treasured of all Olympic items and which athletes from all over the world strive to win.

"Hence, the colour gold is the protagonist of the new design, which also includes the pattern of the map of Barcelona, highlighting the Eixample, Montjuic and Barceloneta areas in homage to the 1992 Games while the trim at the end of the sleeves features the colours of the five Olympic rings.

"This golden colour also symbolises all the values that go into winning an Olympic gold medal, such as tenacity, ambition, effort and the constant quest for self-improvement, and also how gold medal-winning athletes set the standard for others to aspire to.

"Barcelona also wanted the second strip to be a special nod to the women’s football team, which in recent years has gone on a journey that embodies all these values.

"In the last two seasons, the team won a historic treble including their first ever UEFA Champions League title, and this season not only won the domestic treble but also set two consecutive world records for attendance at a women’s football match, filling the Camp Nou for the quarter-final of the Champions League against Real Madrid and doing so again for the semi-final against Wolfsburg."
