Barcelona is paying homage to its team from 25 years ago and will revert back to a uniform with vertical blue and red stripes after playing last season in hoops, the club revealed on Monday

Barcelona's 2016-17 jersey is a tribute to the 1991-92 European Cup winners, the first continental triumph for the club that has gone on to win four more titles since then in a period of extended dominance. 

The new kit is shown without a jersey sponsor. Qatar Airways and Barcelona have their five-year sponsorship agreement end in June, and there has been no renewal or new sponsor for the uniform as of yet.
