    www.fcbarcelona.com.br, new domain for FC Barcelona’s Brazilian website
    Brazil is one of FC Barcelona’s key strategic markets. It’s a world power in the 2.0 environment and the Club wants to intensify its digital presence through its website and social networks

    FC Barcelona is continuing to diversify its web content into different languages, and on occasion of the World Cup in Brazil, it has re-launched its Brazilian website with content specially focused on that country’s users. It has also reinforced its Brazilian identity in the form of a new domain: www.fcbarcelona.com.br

    The website was launched in October 2013, and helps the club to connect with its Brazilian followers. The Barça website is currently available in nine different languages, and the Portuguese version, which until now was only available at www.fcbarcelona.pt, is to be specially focused on FC Barcelona’s strong Brazilian tradition. Brazil is the country that has provided the second highest number of foreign players to FC Barcelona in its history (topped only by England, although most of those players date back to the very earliest years of the club).

     Multiplatform content

    There are three Brazilians in the current first team squad: Neymar, Dani Alves and Adriano, as well as several of their compatriots in the club’s other sports teams, which adds to the very special dynamic being designed for the Brazil-focused version of the Portuguese language service.

    When the website was launched last October, a special promo was recorded that featured Adriano, Marcelinho, Gabriel, Wilde and Ari Santos taking different challenges. Barça has prepared a new video for this re-launch that once again includes a Brazilian theme and highlights the multi-platform nature of the website, with optimised multimedia content not just for computers, but also for smartphones and tablets.

    Social networks on the rise

    FC Barcelona is well aware of the huge potential of the Brazilian 2.0 market. After only Indonesia and Mexico, it has the third highest number of foreign followers of its official Facebook page. Of the club’s 67 million Facebook users, there are a massive 3.7 million in Brazil. And Portuguese is the fifth most widely used language among fans on that social network, topped only by English, Spanish, Indonesian and French.

    Barça’s Brazilian Twitter account (@fcbarcelona_br), launched this season to coincide with the signing of Neymar Jr, has 92,400 followers, and its official LINE account has a further 220,223 fans.

    So, www.fcbarcelona.com.br is the latest of several initiatives to strengthen the club’s bond with its Brazilian fan base and keep them up to date with the day-to-day happenings at FC Barcelona.

    The President of FC Barcelona and of the Foundation has expressed gratitude for this recognition of the Club’s commitment to childrens education

    Variety The Children’s Charity has named the FC Barcelona Foundation as the winner of the Variety Humanitarian Award 2013 in recognition of its charity work and social commitment to the education of children around the world.

    Club President Josep Maria Bartomeu collected the award from Jeffrey Katzenberg, founder of production company DreamWorks, during the closing gala of the CineEurope convention being held by the International Cinema Union at the Barcelona International Conventiond Centre (CCIB).

    In addition to president Bartomeu, the event was also attended, in representation of FCB and the Foundation, by the director and vice-president of the Foundation Ramon Pont, directors Silvio Elías and Pau Vilanova, director in chief of the Social Commission Pilar Guinovart, and the patrons of the Foundation, Eduard Sans and Josep Maldonado.

    The event was also attended by several showbusiness personalities, such as Miss World 2014, Megan Young from the Philippines, who says she is a loyal supporter of FC Barcelona, as well as Miss Spain 2014, Elena Ibarbia.

    Variety The Children’s Charity is a non-profit making organisation founded in Pennsylvania in 1928, in order to help physically, mentally and socially, underprivileged children with special needs all around the world. The Los Angeles based organisation works in eleven countries and since its creation has raised more than two thousand million dollars for the cause.

    Statements by President Bartomeu

    “It is a huge honour for FC Barcelona and its Foundation to have been chosen to receive the Variety Humanitarian Award that has been awarded since 1941. FC Barcelona feels completely identified with the work of Variety in benefit of underprivileged children around the world”

    “I am sure that you will have heard it said that Barça is ‘more than a club’. We are convinced that beyond sporting success, Barça is also admired and recognised around the world for the values it transmits and its social and charity commitments”.

     “Football and cinema share a common objective: to make people happy. FC Barcelona and Variety also share the same commitment: for underprivileged children around the world to have a better future and this award is an example of that”.

    The young Philippine girl, winner of the 2013 beauty contest, was in no doubt about which team she supports

    FC Barcelona has a faithful fan from the world of beauty, and she is no other than Megan Young, winner of the title of Miss World 2013. The young Philippine girl, present at the closing ceremony of the CineEurope convention, where FC Barcelona was awarded the Variety Humanitarian Award 2013 for its humanitarian efforts in the education of children, was proudly photographed with a Barca shirt that she received from President Josep Maria Bartomeu.

    Megan Young, on Barca TV, expressed her gratitude for "this very special gift" as she said she was a faithful follower of the team. "Since the last World Cup, I have made many Barça friends who make me watch games and explain things about football. It's great to learn about this fantastic team who we all now support".

    The current Miss World was very excited by the gift because "I had always planned to get a Barça shirt". Now she’ll be able to support Luis Enrique’s team, wearing the shirt. "My friends and all Barcelona fans in the Philippines will envy me", she said.

    The Philippine beauty won the crown in Bali, in a ceremony in which 127 countries participated. Thus, Young won the award for her country for the first time in its history. Now, with her Barça shirt in her suitcase, it only remains for her to go to the Camp Nou for the first time. She still hasn’t done it yet but she’s clear that "when I return to Barcelona and Barça play at home, I will come with my friends to watch a game".

    [[DES_1]]President Josep Maria Bartomeu reviewed the 2013/14 season and explained his plans for the future of the Club to the gathered media. “I want to transform Barça. I want to make it more effective. That’s why our aim is to improve the athletic, executive and directive ares,” he declared. Bartomeu reiterated the statements he recently made to the FC Barcelona Senate concerning the leadership of the Board of Directors, a governing body he chairs: “Our leadership is and will continue to be firm and sensible.”

    The president qualified this past season as a “contrasting year” that “is yet more proof of the institution’s maturity and extraordinary social power.” He enumerated “the off-the-pitch controversies, institutional changes, some sporting disappointments, and tragic news,” like the passing of Tito Vilanova. He also reminded the press of the “good news for the Club” within the context of “sports, the social area, patrimony and the Club’s economy.” Bartomeu also highlighted the “historic referendum which will start the most important social and infrastructure project in the Club’s recent history.”

    [[DES_2]]On his five months as Club president, he said: “I wanted to transmit calmness and tranquility to the directors. We are convinced that we have done things correctly.” He continued: “Our project doesn’t end in 2016, especially if we keep the Espai Barça in mind. We are excited to stand for reelection.”

    President Bartomeu also weighed in on the so-called ‘Neymar case’: “We are very calm about this. The tax authority has one interpretation and we have our own. If the truth comes out during the judicial hearing on July 21, it will benefit Barça. We are not frightened by the possibility of imputation. If we are called, we will explain the operation to the judge.”

    The FC Barcelona president then touched on the following five points: the first team situation, the professional teams, the Social Area, the Economic Area and the future of the Club.
    [[CITA_1]]
    Turning to the Club's sporting ventures, Bartomeu said the results from the Club’s professional teams and the youth teams are “brilliant,” but he also noted that the “the football team’s results weren’t the desired ones, it’s not sufficient to compete for the big titles and only win the Spanish Super Cup and the Copa Catalunya.” Bartomeu went on to say that the team requires a “profound remodeling”: “The team needs changes and we will make them. In fact, that’s what we’re doing.” He then thanked Valdés, Cesc, Puyol and Pinto – all of whom will no longer feature for Barça –for their contributions to the team. The president then thanked Guillermo Amor for his four years of work in the FC Barcelona youth system.

    Bartomeu went on to highlight the “Club’s multi-sports work” which saw the Club’s professional teams conquer 14 titles in the 2013/14 season. “It’s one of the best trophy hauls we’ve had in recent years,” said the president.
    [[CITA_2]]
    He also praised the “economic strength” of the Club and the “growth” that it maintains. “Barca’s economic health is not the end goal, but it is a good and essential tool that will guarantee the independence of the Club and benefit athletic and infrastructure investments,” he said. Bartomeu also noted that the Club will close out the fiscal year having reduced the net debt and increased revenues to record levels.

    Finally, on the future of the Club, the president discussed the roadmap set by the Board of Directors. The goals are the following: improve the competitiveness of all the professional teams, initiate the Espai Barça Project, continue with the current economic strategy, continue developing the Foundation’s global projects, and completing the ‘Peñas Siglo XXI’ project.

    [[DES_1]]President Josep Maria Bartomeu reviewed the 2013/14 season and explained his plans for the future of the Club to the gathered media. “I want to transform Barça. I want to make it more effective. That’s why our aim is to improve the athletic, executive and directive ares,” he declared. Bartomeu reiterated the statements he recently made to the FC Barcelona Senate concerning the leadership of the Board of Directors, a governing body he chairs: “Our leadership is and will continue to be firm and sensible.”

    The president qualified this past season as a “contrasting year” that “is yet more proof of the institution’s maturity and extraordinary social power.” He enumerated “the off-the-pitch controversies, institutional changes, some sporting disappointments, and tragic news,” like the passing of Tito Vilanova. He also reminded the press of the “good news for the Club” within the context of “sports, the social area, patrimony and the Club’s economy.” Bartomeu also highlighted the “historic referendum which will start the most important social and infrastructure project in the Club’s recent history.”

    [[DES_2]]On his five months as Club president, he said: “I wanted to transmit calmness and tranquility to the directors. We are convinced that we have done things correctly.” He continued: “Our project doesn’t end in 2016, especially if we keep the Espai Barça in mind. We are excited to stand for reelection.”

    President Bartomeu also weighed in on the so-called ‘Neymar case’: “We are very calm about this. The tax authority has one interpretation and we have our own. If the truth comes out during the judicial hearing on July 21, it will benefit Barça. We are not frightened by the possibility of imputation. If we are called, we will explain the operation to the judge.”

    The FC Barcelona president then touched on the following five points: the first team situation, the professional teams, the Social Area, the Economic Area and the future of the Club.
    [[CITA_1]]
    Turning to the Club's sporting ventures, Bartomeu said the results from the Club’s professional teams and the youth teams are “brilliant,” but he also noted that the “the football team’s results weren’t the desired ones, it’s not sufficient to compete for the big titles and only win the Spanish Super Cup and the Copa Catalunya.” Bartomeu went on to say that the team requires a “profound remodeling”: “The team needs changes and we will make them. In fact, that’s what we’re doing.” He then thanked Valdés, Cesc, Puyol and Pinto – all of whom will no longer feature for Barça –for their contributions to the team. The president then thanked Guillermo Amor for his four years of work in the FC Barcelona youth system.

    Bartomeu went on to highlight the “Club’s multi-sports work” which saw the Club’s professional teams conquer 14 titles in the 2013/14 season. “It’s one of the best trophy hauls we’ve had in recent years,” said the president.
    [[CITA_2]]
    He also praised the “economic strength” of the Club and the “growth” that it maintains. “Barca’s economic health is not the end goal, but it is a good and essential tool that will guarantee the independence of the Club and benefit athletic and infrastructure investments,” he said. Bartomeu also noted that the Club will close out the fiscal year having reduced the net debt and increased revenues to record levels.

    Finally, on the future of the Club, the president discussed the roadmap set by the Board of Directors. The goals are the following: improve the competitiveness of all the professional teams, initiate the Espai Barça Project, continue with the current economic strategy, continue developing the Foundation’s global projects, and completing the ‘Peñas Siglo XXI’ project.

    Camp Nou Experience
    FC Barcelona launches ‘Your best moments to share in Barcelona’ to make the Camp Nou Experience one of the most photographed places on Earth and make it a must-see for tourists who visit the city

    It’s easy to get your ticket

    The Club has expanded the ways individuals can buy his or her ticket to the Camp Nou Experience. Here are the different ways to purchase your ticket:

    - On the FC Barcelona website (smartphone friendly)

    - At Barcelona information centers

    - At official FC Barcelona stores

    - At the Camp Nou ticketing booths

    Turn the Camp Nou Experience into one of the most photographed places in the world. This is one of the objectives of the campaign ‘Your best moments to share in Barcelona’, an initiative that aims to make the Camp Nou and the FC Barcelona Museum a must-see for tourists this summer.

    Instagram contest

    The Club wants Camp Nou Experience goers to share their experiences with the world through social networks. That’s why Barça, the most followed sports team in the world on line, is launching a selfie contest. Starting this Thursday, July 3, all visitors who take part in the contest and post their pictures to Instagram will be entered in to win an FC Barcelona kit.

    According to recent studies, Barcelona is the third-most photographed city in the world and the Club wants the Camp Nou Experience, through the ‘Your best moments to share in Barcelona’ initiative, to be on of the most photographed spaces on Earth.

    The Camp Nou Experience is a must-see, playful attraction that offers its visitors an impressive tour of the interior of the Camp Nou. Visitors will get to see the pitch, visit the Museum where the Club stores its most valuable trophies, and experience the multimedia space where the most magical and emblematic moments in FC Barcelona history can be relived.

    One kit a month

    The selfie contest will award the photographer whose photo gets the most ‘likes’ on Instagram an FC Barcelona kit (contest runs in July, August and September).

    The Club has created a microsite on the official website where users can go and browse the submitted photos. The microsite will also rank the best photos of the day, week and month. It’s worth noting that only photos taken in the selfie format on the Camp Nou Experience route and posted to Instagram with the hashtag #campnouexperience will be viewable on the site.

    Video with a surprise challenge

    Part of the campaign features a video published on social networks in which a group of tourists who are walking on La Rambla are randomly chosen solely because they are appear to be Barça Fans. The tourists accept the surprise challenge and are asked to put on blindfolds.

    It’s worth noting that this is the first time that FC Barcelona has organised an endeavour like this, in which 10 tourists accept the challenge to be blindfolded and then given a real Barça Experience. The chosen tourists start their Barça Experience by boarding the first team motor-coach, and then they are taken to the Camp Nou and instructed to remove their blindfolds once they reach the pitch of the famous stadium. They then make their way over to the Barça Lounge, the new gastronomic zone that has incredible views of the stadium.

    Promotion of the campaign

    ‘Your best moments to share in Barcelona’ has launches a promotion campaign in some of the most visited places of Barcelona by tourists. For this reason, the Camp Nou Experience will be advertised at airports, on tour buses, in magazines, at Barcelona information centers and metro stops.

    In addition to the above mentioned areas, the campaign will also be promoted in at Camp Nou and at Club installations.

    selfie camp nou experience
    El Club llança la campanya ‘Your best moments to share in Barcelona’ per tal de potenciar l'Estadi com a visita obligada pels turistes

    Convertir el Camp Nou Experience en un dels espais més fotografiats del món. Aquest és un dels objectius de la campanya ‘Your best moments to share in Barcelona’, (‘Comparteix els teus millors moments a Barcelona’), una iniciativa que pretén potenciar la visita al Camp Nou i al Museu del FC Barcelona com a espais de visita obligada entre els turistes que arribin aquest estiu a la ciutat.

    Concurs a Instagram

    El Club vol que tots els visitants que arribin al Camp Nou Experience comparteixin la seva experiència arreu del món a través de les xarxes socials. I per aquest motiu, el Barça, entitat esportiva líder en l’àmbit de les noves tecnologies, promou la campanya a través d’un concurs de ‘selfies’ (autofotografies que es publiquen a les xarxes socials). A partir d’aquest dijous 3 de juliol tots els visitants del Camp Nou Experience que es facin aquesta fotografia al Camp Nou Experience i la pengin a Instagram podran guanyar una samarreta del FC Barcelona.

    Segons estudis recents, Barcelona és la tercera ciutat més fotografiada del món i amb la campanya ‘Your best moments to share in Barcelona’ el Club vol fomentar que el Camp Nou Experience sigui un dels espais més fotografiats del món.

    El Camp Nou Experience és una atracció ludicocultural obligatòria que ofereix als visitants un impressionant tour per l’interior del Camp Nou, que arriba fins a la gespa i recorre el Museu on es troben els trofeus de l’Entitat i l’espai multimèdia, on es poden reviure els moments més emblemàtics de la història del Club.

    Una samarreta cada mes

    El concurs de ‘selfies’ al Camp Nou Experience premiarà cada mes (durant el juliol, l’agost i el setembre) l’autofotografia que hagi obtingut més “m’agrada” a Instagram. La recompensa serà una samarreta del primer equip del FC Barcelona.

    Perquè els usuaris puguin fer el seguiment del concurs i veure les opcions de la seva fotografia, s’ha creat un ‘microsite’ que es trobarà dintre del web del Club on es podran veure i votar totes les instantànies participants i s’hi podrà consultar un rànquing amb les millors del dia, de la setmana i del mes.

    Cal tenir en compte que només entraran al concurs les fotos en format ‘selfie’ que s’hagin fet durant el circuit del Camp Nou Experience i s’hagin publicat a Instagram amb l’etiqueta #campnouexperience.

    Vídeo amb un ‘repte sorpresa’ a les xarxes socials

    Se suma a aquesta campanya també un divertit vídeo distribuït a les xarxes socials, en què un grup de turistes estrangers que passejaven per les Rambles, i escollits a l’atzar pel sol fet de ser Barça Fans, accepten un ‘repte sorpresa’ al qual s’hi han de sotmetre amb els ulls embenats.

    És la primera vegada que el FC Barcelona organitza una sorpresa d’aquestes característiques, en què 10 turistes van acceptar el repte de tapar-se els ulls i viure una Barça Experience. Els escollits van començar la Barça Experience pujant-se per sorpresa al bus del primer equip, després se’ls va proposar el repte de tapar-se els ulls fins que se’ls van poder destapar a peu de gespa del Camp Nou, on realment van poder viure en primera persona què és el Camp Nou Experiece. Aquests intrèpids turistes van fer tot el recorregut instruïts per un guia i van acabar l’experiència al Camp Nou Lounge, el nou espai gastronòmic que compta amb vistes immillorables de l’Estadi.

    Ampli desplegament de publicitat exterior

    ‘Your best moments to share in Barcelona’, amb l’objectiu de despertar l’interès entre els turistes que són a Barcelona de vacances, ha llançat una campanya de publicitat exterior amb presència a principals espais turístic de Barcelona. Per aquest motiu, durant els mesos de juliol i agost, el Camp Nou Experience estarà molt present en els aeroports, en els busos turístics de la ciutat, en revistes dirigides al públic turista, en els punts de informació de turisme de Barcelona i en les parades del metro.

    A part de la campanya exterior, aquesta campanya serà molt visible també dins de les instal·lacions del Camp Nou així com en tots els diversos actius publicitaris del Club.
