Barcelona To Wear Special One-Off Jersey In Honour Of Terror Attack Victims

Barcelona To Wear Special One-Off Jersey In Honour Of Terror Attack Victims

The city of Barcelona is still coming to terms with the attack on the city this week that saw 14 people killed.

Ahead of the start of La Liga this weekend, FC Barcelona have confirmed that the team will honour those who were killed and injury in the attacks with a special one-off jersey.

On Sunday evening in the Camp Nou, every Barca player will have Barcelona on the back of their jerseys instead of their name. For example, the back of Lionel Messi's jersey will read 'Barcelona 10', instead of 'Messi 10'.

After getting permission from the Spanish Football Federation and La Liga, the team will also have #TotsSomBarcelona on the front of the jerseys.

All La Liga matches this weekend will have a minute's silence before each game. All of FC Barcelona's teams will also wear black armbands this weekend too in memory of those who were killed.

The move is similar to what Paris Saint-Germain did in 2015 in the aftermath of the Paris Attacks. The team's sponsors gave up their spot on the jersey for two matches in place of a 'Je Suis Paris' slogan in solidarity with those who were killed.
