The fight against CoVID-19 is getting real.
In an attempt to raise funds to fight the virus, Barcelona have decided to sell their naming rights to the historical stadium of ‘Nou Camp’.
The club has vowed to use the funds raised from the selling of Barcelona to fight against the pandemic solely!
Jordi Cardoner, the first vice president of FC Barcelona and of the Barça Foundation said: “We are very happy to be able to drive forward this initiative that offers something as emblematic as the name of our stadium, so that institutions, organisations, businesses who wise may associate themselves with it and as such, contribute to the fight against COVID-19, given that their investment will used to finance research projects on the illness and projects that are working to eradicate or lessen its effects.
“Right now, we can quantify the effects of this health crisis but what we do know is that it will require all our resources to defeat it and for that reason it is so important that we all together make a solid, firm commitment.”
The stadium will carry a new name – which will have the name of a sponsor before or after the word ‘Nou Camp’ for the first time in its history since opening in 1957!
