FC Basel unveiled the new home kit for the 2008-2009 season made by Nike. FC Basel's traditional kit is red and blue shirts, blue shorts with gold trim and blue socks with red trim.

From this comes the nickname "RotBlau" which is Swiss German for Red and Blue. FC Basel's kits are manufactured by Nike and sponsored by Novartis, a multinational pharmaceutical company which is based in the city of Basel.

The famous "blaugrana" colours of FC Barcelona are said to have originated from the "rotblau" colours of FC Basel. FC Barcelona was founded by former FC Basel captain Joan Gamper.

FC Basel logoFC Basel's current logo is a shield, the left half red and the right half blue. The shield is outlined with gold and in the centre in gold letters it says FCB which stands for "Fussballclub Basel" or "Football Club Basel". The logo is worn in the centre of the shirt opposed to on the traditional left-hand side. Like the colours of FC Basel, the logo has a striking resemblance to that of FC Barcelona in Spain. There are theories that suggest that the founder of FC Barcelona, being at one time the captain of FC Basel, reincorporated the logo of FC Basel on to that of FC Barcelona.

The resemblances seem clear, both logos seem to incorporate the shield design, as do most other clubs. But most notably is the FCB acronyms on both logos and the Red-Blue colours, outlined in gold. Also the football that lies on the left side of the FC Basel logo seems to be the exact shape, type and colour as that of the FC Barcelona Logo in the bottom centre. Because of this, many people tend to say that FC Basel was the inspiration in the process of founding FC Barcelona in Spain.

\'FC Basel\'s current logo is a shield, the left half red and the right half blue\'<br /><br />im fairly sure the left half is blue and the right half is red.<br /><br />Nice kit though, however i dont like shirts with a panel for numbers; it just looks stupid on a striped kit
