The brand new FC Barcelona jersey, constructed by none other than Nike, is designed to bring together the American sports apparel brand's futuristic performance technology with a vintage design scheme inspired by Barcelona's famous jerseys of yester-year.

The jersey specifically borrows its design scheme from the jersey worn by its players back in 1992 when the team picked up its first ever European Cup. The jersey features an array of Catalan symbols including the words "Un Crit Valen", meaning "Our Cry is Bold" in Catalan, as well as the famous red-and-yellow Catalan flag.

Considering that FC Barcelona's heated rivals Real Madrid feature more than double the number of European Cups, Nike and FC Barcelona will be hoping a return to a vintage jersey design will help spark better luck on the field.
