Barcelona 2007-2008 Home Jersey

For your info, this is my first non Manchester United jersey. The reason i get it is because it is offered at a very cheap price from an online store, and also i believe that this jersey looks very classy and nice. Ok, i will continue on with my review.

Around the club crest there is an embroidery which shows "CAMP NOU" and "1957-2007", referring to their 50th anniversary using their stadium Camp Nou.

Instead of companies sponsoring the team and the team put the sponsor's logo on the shirt, Barcelona actually gave US$1.9 million per year to UNICEF and putting the logo there as a charity act.

The customary NikeFIT on recent Nike jerseys are there on the right side of the wearer.

On the other side, there's another patch also commemorating the 50th anniversary at CAMP NOU.

At the back of the shirt are the "HENRY 14" nameset.

Unlike English Premier League teams who have to use the name and number font set by the Football Association, Spanish League teams can choose their own font. Thus you can see the Barcelona crest at the bottom of the number.

Near the sleeve, there's a Catalonia flag, as Catalonia people are proud of their Catalan traditions and tend to disassociate themselves with Spain itself.

On the inside of the collar, there's the Barca motto reading "Més que un club ", which means "more than a club" in Spanish. This phrase can be seen at the Camp Nou seats too.

On the right sleeve there's the La Liga Patch, LFP stands for "Liga de Futbol Profesional".

And here's a picture of Barcelona playing against Manchester United at Camp Nou for the semi final match for UCL, which ended in a 0-0 draw, MU winning the second leg at Old Trafford, and booking them to the final, and finally winning the European Champions League:
