Night Rising: 2015/16 Manchester City & Barcelona Nike Third Kits


For the 2015/16 Third Kits, Nike designed a "Night Rising" theme featuring bright colors with black ombre details to accentuate a player's presence during night matches played under flood lights. The bright green used in the Manchester City kit was inspired by the green trim of the 1999 kit that Man City wore during a pivotal playoff game that ended in a victorious penalty shootout. 


The Barcelona third kit is featured in a striking blue, inspired by the traditional "blau" of Barca home kits but turning it an electric hue to symbolize forward-thinking. The name and number sets will also be featured in a unique typeface inspired by the sentinel chimneys of Guadi's La Pedrera, Barcelona's well-known architectural masterpiece.

The Manchester City and FC Barcelona third kits will be available in The Soccer Shop on October 1st in both adult and youth sizes.
