Barcelona set to go back to the future with retro 1970s badge for 2023-24 season | The Sun

BARCELONA will go full retro as they prepare to change their badge for the 2023/24 season.

The Spanish giants have seen 10 badges throughout their history, with the current one being kept in place since 2002.

However, it seems the club want to spice things up a little bit by throwing in something new, but old.

Barcelona have spent years trying experimental and modern kits, but now the club is going back to its roots with a plan to please football purists.

Along with kit manufacturer Nike, the club are planning a retro theme with their away kit in the 2023/24 season.

The kit will feature a club crest from the 1970s, with Footy Headlines predicting the logo will be the one from the 1974/75 season.

The Blaugrana used three different badges in the 1970s.

The first which they used for 14 years prior to the 74' change had C.F.B. written on, before the next kit switched this to F.C.B. and went for a more sleek design by rounding it off and cutting the extra frills.

However, the white background behind the letters didn't last as the crest was updated again.

This time the update saw the return of the yellow background but kept the lettering the same.

Of the three it bears the most similarities to its successor – the modern crest – with the main difference being the boldness and sharpness of the colouration in the badge.

The current badge looks like it is here to stay for a while longer, but fans could be pleasantly refreshed with this flash from the past.
