In a major revelation, SPORT journalist Joan Vehils has claimed that Barcelona’s away kit for the 2023/24 campaign will be white in colour.
Barcelona have historically avoided white kits in order to avoid a clash with their traditional rivals Real Madrid. Indeed, the Blaugrana have not had a white-coloured kit in over 40 years, with the last such occasion coming in the 1977/78 campaign.
Prior to that, there is plenty of history of Barcelona donning a white jersey, with the club even achieving glory in those colours, with the 1952 Latin Cup triumph against Nice being one such instance.
However, there have been instances when fans have expressed criticism about the club donning the white kit in the past, which has stopped the Blaugrana to use the colour for their kits for over four decades.
The third kit for the ongoing campaign had appeared white in a few images close to its release earlier this year, following which the club had issued a clarification that the colour of the jersey was grey and not white.
Elena Fort (Institutional Vice President): “The third kit is grey, and it was never expected to be white. Remember that kits are chosen two seasons before they release, and they cannot be changed.” pic.twitter.com/ijh48EWvgS

However, it seems that Barça have now agreed to approve a white away kit for the next season, with president Joan Laporta and the board of directors giving the proposal a green light a few months ago.
It will certainly be interesting to see how the fans react to this news about Barcelona gearing up in white jerseys for the new season.
