LEAKED: Barcelona shocking away kit for the 2023/24 season, revealed, as per reports from Spanish source Sports.
Journalist for SPORT Joan Vehils has made a significant disclosure, claiming that Barcelona’s away kit for the 2023–24 season would be white in color.
Barcelona has typically shied away from wearing white uniforms to prevent a confrontation with their longtime rivals Real Madrid. The last time the Blaugrana wore a white uniform was during the 1977–1978 season, therefore it has been more than 40 years.
Prior to that, Barcelona has used white jerseys frequently throughout history. The team has even experienced success when sporting those colors; one such occasion is the 1952 Latin Cup victory over Nice.

However, there have been times when supporters have complained about the team wearing a white shirt in the past, which has prevented the Blaugrana from using the color for their uniforms for more than 40 years.
In a few photographs taken before the third kit for the current season was released earlier this year, it appeared white. The club then issued a clarification saying that the color of the jersey was actually grey and not white.
However, it appears that Barça has now decided to accept a white away kit for the upcoming season after the plan received approval from the board of directors and president Joan Laporta a few months ago.
It will be interesting to see how the supporters respond to the announcement that Barcelona will be wearing white jerseys for the upcoming campaign.
