Barcelona are one of the most popular football teams in the world – and they’re about to be even more popular after their latest charity move.
Barcelona are selling the naming rights to their stadium for the first time in its history. And they’ll donate all the proceeds to Coronavirus charities.
It’s the first time that Barcelona’s stadium will have a formal name since it was built 63 years ago.
Camp Nou, which means the new ground, is the largest football ground in Europe with a capacity of 105,000 thousand. And the naming rights should go for millions of Euros, all of which will be used to help fund Coronavirus charities.
It’s not the first time that Barcelona has stepped up and given to charity. The club named Unicef as their first-ever shirt sponsor in 2006, donating €1.6m a year to the charity.
The Spanish club are one of the most successful in the world, having won 74 trophies including 26 La Liga titles and 20 European trophies. But the club has always wanted to be ‘more than a club.’
We couldn’t leave you hanging without some football highlights could we? Here’s the GOAT doing what he best: amazing goals.
