La Liga

Barcelona’s Copa del Rey opponents release unique jersey.

In the upcoming Copa del Rey round of 16 clash, Barcelona is set to face Unionistas de Salamanca CF, a club with a unique history as the phoenix successor to the once-prominent UD Salamanca, which competed in La Liga during the 1970s. Following financial challenges that led to the dissolution of UD Salamanca in 2013, Unionistas de Salamanca CF emerged as a resilient phoenix club. As they gear up to challenge the reigning La Liga champions, Barcelona, in a highly anticipated match on January 18th, Salamanca has unveiled a special edition jersey that pays poignant homage to their predecessor.

In a touching tribute to UD Salamanca, Unionistas de Salamanca has incorporated the original club’s crest as a patch on their jersey, accompanied by the words ‘In Memoriam.’ This gesture reflects the club’s commitment to honouring their heritage and the memory of UD Salamanca. The beautiful shirt is manufactured by Italian company Errea.

Barcelona, who are currently navigating a season marked by struggles, faces the prospect of an upset as they take on Unionistas de Salamanca CF, making this Copa del Rey clash a potentially unpredictable encounter. If Barca fail to advance past Salamanca, manager Xavi will be under immense pressure from the fans and board of the Catalan giants.
