La Liga By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 16/11/2018

Barcelona unveils new special edition jersey for 20th-anniversary partnership with Nike.

The American sportswear have worked with La Liga Champions over last two decade to produced a commemorative shirt to mark the anniversary but the inspiration from all the kits worn by Blaugrana superstars over the last 20 years.

The shirt will not be worn by Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and the rest of his teammate on the pitch this season but the Barcelona is going to be made available for supporters to get their hands on from November 21. 2019.

Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director told Daily Mail: "This idea really came out of the blue.

"We wanted to do something different to celebrate the 20th anniversary. The main challenge was ensuring all the previous shirts were represented, but also that each one was carefully placed. 

"We had to be mindful of the overall design, rather than just placing each one anywhere on the garment.

Barcelona travels to the Spanish capital to battle Atletico Madrid in the La Liga encounter at Wanda Metropolitano after the international break.
