Update: A PES 2017 video has confirmed the Barcelona third kit ahead of its official release next week.
The new Barcelona 2016-17 third kit introduces a bold design that draws inspiration from many iconic, teal-colored away shirts worn by the club since the 1990s. Made by Nike, the new Barcelona 16-17 third kit is set to be launched in early September 2016, two months after the new Barça home and away jerseys.
For the moment, the Barcelona 2016-2017 third shirt boasts a sponsor-less look just like the already released Barcelona 16-17 home and away jerseys. However, based on reports from Spain, it can be expected that the club will announce a new sponsor or a renewal with Qatar Airways in late July.
Barcelona 16-17 Third Kit
This is the Nike FC Barcelona 16-17 third kit.
The Nike Barcelona 2016-17 third jersey combines teal ('Energy') with mint green ('Green Glow') in a gradient design akin to that of the Manchester City 2016-17 third kit. Black is used for the Nike, Beko and Unicef logos on the Barcelona 16-17 third shirt, while the Qatar Airways sponsor is white.
Based on Nike's Vapor kit template with AeroSwift technology, the Barcelona 2016-17 third shirt sees a thin stripe run down on each side and features a cut-and-sew neckline.
The shorts and socks of the Barcelona 2016-2017 third kit are also mint green, while black is used as secondary color.
Kappa produced the Barcelona kits between 1992 and 1998 and often opted for teal as Barcelona away kit color. Nike took over from 1998 and used teal, combined with a blue-and-red chest band, itself for the 2010-11 Barcelona away shirt.
