Barcelona have unveiled their new kit for the 2018-19 season.

The Liga champions, who have already wrapped up the title ahead of their final game of the season against Real Sociedad on Sunday, released details of the new strip at an event held at the Olympic swimming pools on Montjuic hill.

The jersey features the iconic blue and garnet-coloured stripes, with the shirt designed to unite the 10 districts of the city of Barcelona.

Barca decided to do something different with their unveiling of the shirt, with a freestyle footballer, high diver and synchronised swimmers, as well as a drone carrying a large replica of the jersey, involved.

The event lasted around 15 minutes in total, with midfielder Philippe Coutinho also present.

Ernesto Valverde's side will wear the kit for the first time in Sunday's Liga finale against Sociedad, which will also mark Andres Iniesta's last ever game as a Barca player.

It remains to be seen where Iniesta will end up next, however, with the 34-year-old having previously admitted that he is choosing between a switch to Japan or China.

Barca are guaranteed to finish at least nine points in front of second place in La Liga this season, with both Atletico Madrid and Real able to finish as the runner-up ahead of their final games of the campaign on Saturday.
