Puyol and Pedroin the new black Barcelona kit| Barcelona New Kit

When a football player sports the colour black, it usually comes in the form of a band around the bicep to signify the event of bad news.
But Spanish giants Barcelona are bucking the trend with their new away kit. An all black strip for the forthcoming season will be sported by Messi and co as the Catalan club begin the search for yet more silverware.
However, the kit, made by sports giant Nike, is not the first time a major team will play in the colour after a similar design was produced recently for Brazil's third kit.
The club also launched the new home strip which revealed one major change. The Unicef logo which had adorned the front of the strip has been moved to the back. 
The new name emblazoned across the shirts of both the home and away strips is Qatar Foundation.

In case you didn't know, the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development is stumping up an eye-watering £150million over five years to become the club's first ever shirt sponsors.

Nike say the strips feature a modern aesthetic while remaining faithful to the club's most distinctive patterns and club history.
On the inside collar of the shirt a graphic bears the motto “Tots unit fem força” (“All together, we are strong”), which is taken from Barcelona’s club anthem.
While the history and tradition of the club is present in the shirt design, the new kit is made from Nike's ground-breaking recycled polyester.
The kit is made up of up to thirteen reclaimed plastic water bottles. This new manufacturing process reduces energy consumption by up to 30% compared to manufacturing traditional polyester and saves nearly 100 million plastic water bottles from being dumped at landfill sites.
