The story behind FC Barcelona Shirts is an interesting one.
Some say the club plays in the same colours as founder Hans Gamper’s original clubs in Switzerland – FC Basel and FC Zurich.
However, my favourite theory hints at the British origins of FC Barcelona!
In the Barça early days, at the turn of the 20th century, two of the clubs founder members – the Witty brothers – were Old Boys of Merchant Taylor’s school.
This may be just a coincidence but the school football team played in claret and blue at the end of the 19th century and it was when Arthur Witty became club president
in 1903 that Barça adopted its present colours.
Whatever the origins, though, a Barça shirt is something to wear with pride. You’re wearing a shirt that represents the Catalan nation and the fight against Franco –
it’s packed with history but now is an emblem of the most glamorous and exciting football played in the world!
