Colours of the Barcelona Home Strip
Barcelona football club is one of the most successful clubs in world soccer and has some of the best and most popular players on its team sheet, this fact means that around the globe the Barcelona strip is recognisable to fans and non-fans alike. The iconic red and blue colour scheme was introduced in 1900 and has remained a consistent feature ever since.
As a general rule the Barcelona home shirt features alternating red and blue vertical stripes, these change width and placement giving each seasons jersey a new and vibrant look. The 2015/16 Barca home shirt offered a radical redesign by Nike and featured horizontal stripes. The Barcelona home shorts are usually a solid colour often blue, but sometimes red. The accompanying Barcelona home socks are more often than not blue featuring red or yellow detail.

Barca Nike Vapor Jersey Versus Stadium
Here at Soccer Box we are supplied directly by Nike, meaning that we can offer you several variations on the latest Barca home football shirt. The Barcelona vapor / authentic home shirt is priced at a higher level and is an exact replica of the football shirt you will see the Barca squad wearing at home fixtures. The vapor shirts include more advanced fabric technology for improved performance on the pitch and are designed to meet the higher specification required by elite professional footballers. The Barcelona vapor home shirt is available to purchase in adult sizes only.
The other option available is the classic stadium jersey, named in our online store simply as the Barcelona home shirt. This option is available in both junior and adult sizes. These shirts are produced by Nike and have the same overall look as the authentic player jerseys. The difference is in the fabric technology, you will still get Nike signature Dri-Fit performance and fit.

For every soccer club the iconic home of the team is their football stadium. Since their inception FC Barcelona has had three home grounds.
- Camp de la Indústria
- Camp de Les Corts
- Camp Nou
Camp de la Indústria was the team’s first stadium, which held only 6,000 supporters. The club soon outgrew this ground and invested in building a new one. Camp de Les Corts initially opened with a capacity of 20,000, over the years this was expanded upon until the stadium held 60,000 Barcelona home shirt clad supporters.
With no further room for expansion, and a run of success in the late 1940’s FC Barca began making ambitious plans for a new stadium. Camp Nou was completed in 1957 and has been the home of Barcelona football club ever since. To date the stadium holds 99,354 all-seated supporters, this makes Camp Nou the largest football ground in Europe and the third largest in the world, an impressive feat for a stadium that was conceptualised over sixty years ago.
