    No to racism .
    FC Barcelona wishes to express its complete support and solidarity with our first team player Dani Alves, following the insults he was subject to from a section of the crowd at El Madrigal on Sunday during the game against Villarreal

    FC Barcelona would like to underline the civil, cultural, social and sporting importance of two messages which UEFA remind us of before every game: Respect and No to Racism.

    FC Barcelona wishes to express its complete support and solidarity with our first team player Dani Alves, following the insults he was subject to from a section of the crowd at El Madrigal on Sunday during the game against Villarreal. FC Barcelona accepts that the perpetrators of these insults are in no way connected to Villarreal and we value very positively the support the club offered to our player. The club’s immediate condemnation of the incidents is a step in the right direction to firstly isolate and then eradicate completely from the sporting arena this kind of behaviour.

    FC Barcelona reiterates its support for UEFA’s message of Respect and No to Racism and urges all clubs to continue fighting against the blight on the game which any kind of aggression against a sportsperson on the basis of their race represents.

    FIFA President Joseph Blatter meets with President Josep Maria Bartomeu and a delegation from FC Barcelona

    A delegation from FC Barcelona, headed by Club President Josep Maria Bartomeu today paid a courtesy visit on FIFA President Joseph Blatter at the organisation’s HQ in Zurich.

    This was the first meeting between the two presidents since Sr Bartomeu took over the reins at FC Barcelona. During their meeting, both men agreed that at all levels, football authorities must work together for the benefit of the game and its global development.

    The FC Barcelona President was accompanied by Sporting Vice-President, Jordi Mestre, Communication Vice-President, Manel Arroyo and the Director of Football Management, Raúl Sanllehí. FIFA’s Director of Member Associations and Development Thierry Regenass and Director of Communication and Public Affairs, Walter de Gregorio also attended the meeting.

    The two former Formula 1 drivers enjoyed their visit to the Museum and their tour of the Camp Nou

    The two former Formula 1 divers Damon Hill and Johnny Herbert visited the FC Barcelona Museum this afternoon. Coinciding with the Formula 1 Grand Prix at the Catalunya Circuit, Hill and Herbert, who now commentate for the British network Sky Sports, are filming a report about the most emblematic places in the city of Barcelona.

    “I don’t have a lot of knowledge of the world of football, but I have a lot of respect for one of the biggest clubs of the world,” said Hill. The world champions acknowledged that Barcelona “is a very interesting city with a fantastic history,” and he commented on his first visit to the Catalan city: “It was in 1973, I was going to the Montjuïc Circuit, and I remember that Barça were playing that night and that this city really loves its team.”

    Johnny Heart noted that he admires Messi: “He’s not a tall player, but the ball is glued to his foot and it’s fantastic to watch him.” Herbert went on to say that the Camp Nou “is a fantastic stadium”, and that his visit to the Museum was “very interesting” and that “Catalans are marvelous people”.

    The players got a close look at the Qatar Airways Boeing 777 painted in the Barça colours
    The players got to see the plane that was designed to show the world that the two organisations are in partnership

    On Wednesday, the first team players, along with president Josep Maria Bartomeu, the vice president for Economic Strategy, Javier Faus, and the CEO Antoni Rossich, were at El Prat Airport to welcome the Boeing 777 that was designed to showcase the partnership between FC Barcelona and Qatar Airways. It was the first time that the plane had landed in the city of Barcelona.

    The captain and his crew also got the chance to be pictured with the Barça squad. This Boeing 777 is currently flying to a series of destinations in the company’s worldwide network, including Bangkok, Singapore and Mumbai. 

    The aircraft, which features a stunning design incorporating the colourful Barça flag and club emblem draped across the tail-end of the Boeing 777, also features the tagline, ‘a team that unites the world’, which was first introduced in the popular TV spot created to support the partnership. The FC Barcelona livery, alongside the Qatar Airways Oryx logo, was crafted in Dublin, Ireland, where a team hand-painted the design with a shading effect to create the illusion of the Barça flag moving as the aircraft takes to the skies..

    Statements by the president of FC Barcelona, Josep Maria Bartomeu, and Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, His Excellency, Mr Akbar Al Baker

    Bartomeu: “This plane symbolises the value of the alliance between Barça and Qatar Airways”

    “It was very exciting to see this immensely spectacular plane so close up, the Qatar Airways Boeing 777 carrying the colours and crest of FC Barcelona. This is the first time that our sponsor’s Boeing 777 has appeared in our city and we are here to welcome it. This plane symbolises the value of the alliance between Barça and Qatar Airways and our universal and global outlook, as reflected in the intercontinental journeys we go on. We are delighted to see how our colours are travelling around the world”.

    Al Baker: “The Boeing 777 demonstrates how strongly we believe in this partnership”

    “We are thrilled to see our Boeing 777 with the custom designed FCB livery touch down in Barcelona, the home of our partners FC Barcelona. The arrival of the aircraft for the first time to this beautiful city was made all the more special by the attendance of the players, Mr. Bartomeu, Mr. Faus and Mr. Rossich. This beautiful aircraft representing both our airline and our friends at FC Barcelona further demonstrates how strongly and genuinely we believe in this partnership.
