    Zhenzhong Xi, a Chinese Barça fan who has crossed half the globe on his motorbike, is welcomed by the Club in Barcelona

    Zhenzong Xi is a Chinese FC Barcelona fan who has just come to the end of an amazing adventure, travelling by motorbike all the way from China to the city of Barcelona where his trip ended at his favourite club’s stadium, Camp Nou. On Saturday Barça decided to recognise his daring feat and Zhenzong Xi was received by the director of the Social Commission, Josep Barnils and by the president of the Federation of International Barça Supporters’ Clubs, Antoni Freire. The meeting took place in front of the Camp Nou offices ahead of FC Barcelona’s league game against Real Sociedad. As a reminder of his epic journey, Zhenzong Xi donated the motorbike on which he made the six-month trip which started just 10 days after his wedding.

    Xi visited Barça Supporters’ Clubs in the 21 countries he passed through and together with the motorbike, he presented the Club with a giant Barça flag that various fans and Supporters’ Club members had signed during his journey. Via the International Supporters’ Club, the man from China contacted various Supporters’ Clubs during his journey, making stops in London and Lisbon amongst other cities.

    Zhenzong Xi timed his visit perfectly as he was able to take in not only the game against Real Sociedad at Camp Nou, but also the victory over AS Roma in the Champions League and the 4-0 win in the Clásico at the Bernabéu against Real Madrid.
    “I have been a big fan of Barça since I was 14 years of age and I wanted to come to a game at Camp Nou, but not just any old game, and for that reason I came by motorbike. I became a Barça fans thanks to Patrick Kluivert, I liked Puyol a lot but now I love the Club more than the players, although I think my favourite is Javier Mascherano,” concluded the intrepid Barça fan.

    The 12th man (the supporters) has always played an important role in football
    Sergio Busquets, Bartra, Jordi Alba, Dani Alves and Ter Stegen appear in a new campaign to encourage attendance of matches at the Camp Nou

    A few weeks ago, FC Barcelona announced a new campaign to encourage people to come and see games at the Camp Nou, called Jugador 12 (12th man). The idea is to remind all Camp Nou season ticket holders that whenever they are unable to attend a match, they can give up their seat in order for somebody else to come along and support the team instead. The system also offers a number of exclusive benefits.

    Sergio Busquets, Marc Bartra, Jordi Alba, Dani Alves and Ter Stegen offered their services as actors for a day in the recording of a new promotional video. Here you can enjoy seeing them having plenty of fun showing off their ball juggling skills as part of the day’s filming.

     Barça starting XI with a group of youngsters from the Catalan Down's Syndrome Association / MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB
    The Copa del Rey match between Barça and Villanovense attracts 67,703 spectators to the Camp Nou, the highest figure out of the five editions

    The Members Solidarity Day at the Camp Nou on occasion of the Copa del Rey round of 32 second leg between FC Barcelona and CF Villanovense drew 67,703 spectators to the stadium, the best attendance in the five years that the scheme has been running. Today’s success consolidates an initiative of important social value, and that is now a firm fixture on the Barça calendar, which offers different groups the chance to watch a game live at the Camp Nou, all thanks to the generosity of the season ticket holders.

    The wonderful response has much to do with the efforts of 200 collaborating organisations, who distributed invitations to the game to 1,500 different groups of beneficiaries – making the day a wonderful celebration of solidarity, with a host of adults and children able to experience a night out watching their team in action at the Camp Nou.

    Another factor that helped to boost attendance was the earlier kick-off at 8.00pm local time, which is much more convenient, especially for people that have to travel from outside the city.

    The attendances for the first five editions of the Solidarity Day are as follows:

    • 2011 L’Hospitalet (Thursday 22 December, 22.00) 56,480 spectators
    • 2012 Alavés (Wednesday 28 November, 21.30) 57,655 spectators
    • 2013 Cartagena (Wednesday 18 December, 22.00) 47,280 spectators
    • 2014 Huesca (Tuesday 16 December, 22.00) 44,844 spectators
    • 2015 Villanovense (Wednesday 2 December. 20.00) 67,703 spectators

    The big change this year was to the procedure by which season ticket holders released their seats. Once a period had expired in which members were able to fill in a form on the club website declaring that they intended to attend the match, all of the unclaimed seats in the Camp Nou were released.

    The new system meant that a lot more tickets were available, and much earlier, and could then be delivered in good time by the collaborators to the beneficiaries.

    This week, and all day today, season ticket holders wishing to come to see the game have been able to do so by collecting an alternative premium ticket from the offices on the club premises.

    More than 100 places for wheelchair users

    For the first time ever, more than 100 places were made available to wheelchair users and their guides. This increase was made possible by installing a platform in the first tier of the lateral zone with 55 additional places, in addition to 48 behind the goals, making a total of 103 places, all of which were used this evening.

    Before the match kicked off, a group of children from the Catalan Down Syndrome Association posed for a picture on the pitch with the FC Barcelona players.

    Leo Messi in the online edition of the 'Financial Times'
    The prestigious newspaper publishes an interview with Club president Josep Maria Bartomeu in which he talks of the goals for the future, including reaching the figure of €1 billion Euros in revenue The newspaper ‘Expansión’ also highlights the Club’s desire to “not base economic success on the team winning or losing”

    FC Barcelona’s Strategic Plan is news in the ‘Financial Times’. The highly regarded British newspaper has a headline “Barça president takes a shot at €1bn goal” on Friday in an article which talks about the Club’s economic ambitions.  We want to be the first club to generate an income of more than one billion Euros,” states Josep Maria Bartomeu in an interview with the financial publication.

    “There is no other in the world, whether in football or in other sports, that think ahead more than one or two seasons. But here at Barça we do,” continues the president, referring to the Strategic Plan to take the Club to 2021 and that was presented the FC Barcelona employees on Friday.

    Asked about his rivals, Bartomeu explained that Barça’s main competitor is the Premier League, whose clubs every year try to tempt away the Club’s youth team players at La Masia.

    The newspaper ‘Expasion’ also highlights FC Barcelona’s economic ambitions. The publication has the headline “Barça want to bring in 1,000 million by 2021 via marketing and television” and it explains the Club’s desire not to base everything on sporting results. “Up until now the sporting success has meant success in social and economic areas, something that fed the sporting side. This equation has to be developed: economic success cannot be based on whether the side wins or loses,” explains Bartomeu in an interview with Expansion.

    Directors Jordi Moix, Maria Teixidor and Pau Vilanova, with Antonio Gil, director of the Tokyo Cervantes Institute / GERMAN PARGA - FCB
    Ahead of the 2020 Olympic Games in the Japanese capital, the urbanism of Barcelona gains ever more relevance as a reference to Japanese society

    Coinciding with FC Barcelona’s stay in Tokyo for the Club World Cup, the Cervantes Institute held a conference in the Japanese capital devoted to analysing the transformation of Barcelona since the Olympic Games in 1992.

    The extraordinary architecture of Barcelona is a reference point to Japanese society and ahead of the Olympic Games to be held in Tokyo in 2020, the example of the Catalan capital becomes even more important.

    The conference made it possible to see how sport could transform a city. Espai Barça was the main focus of the exhibition, looking at the remodeling project as well as the heritage and urban transformation of the club. The audience showed its interest in how Espai Barça integrated itself in the city of Barcelona and the public uses that the new FC Barcelona premises have. One of the main challenges of the 2020 Olympic Games is the reuse of new facilities and their integration into the urban network of the city, aspects which Espai Barça holds as fundamental in its conceptualization.

    Jordi Moix, Commissioner of Espai Barça

    “One of the most unique aspects about the club is that it is owned by the 150,000 members, and it is they who make the big decisions. An example is that Espai Barça was approved in a referendum by the members in April 2014.”

    "We appreciate the praise that Espai Barça has received for its contribution to the urban transformation of Barcelona from professionals in architecture, urbanism and Japanese universities present at the event."

    Manel Arroyo speaks to the Japanese media. / GERMÁN PARGA - FCB
    The FC Barcelona Vice President, in Tokyo for the Club World Cup, highlights the Club's global presence as a key for growing the Barça brand, along with its values, and sport in general Offices, like in Hong Kong, and the FCB Escoles, like those in Fukuoka and Katsushika, are two of the main pillars of the Club's strategy

    The Club’s institutional activities in Tokyo during the Club World Cup show no signs of slowing down. The global expansion of the Barça brand is one of the Club’s main managerial challenges. The most visible acts relating to this area have been the meeting with Bill Gates for the global alliance between the FC Barcelona Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the visit to the FCB Escola Katsushika.

    Before attending interviews with the Japanese media, including the business daily, The Nikkei, Manel Arroyo, vice president of marketing and communications, stressed the importance of active presence worldwide in the Club’s global strategy of: "With the current size of the club, and with its sporting results arousing admiration, and with the fact that football is the only truly global sport, and with areas such as Asia or the United States ripe for growth, it is clear that Barça must be in these territories and must lay down roots."

    This active presence is evident through commercial offices and the FCB Escoles. "From a marketing and sales point of view, we are in these territories with our sales offices, like we have in Hong Kong, like the one we will open in the coming weeks in New York, and like the ones we want to open around the world. And we are also in these areas through the FCB Escoles worldwide, including the one in Fukuoka and the one we visited this week in Katsushika, which was a unique and unforgettable experience."[[CITA_1]]

    "Our first objective is to strengthen sports at the Club, to maintain our competitiveness, as well as to secure the resources necessary for the projects that we have underway, such as the Espai Barça. We also want to spread our singularity, as well as the values for which Barça is admired around the world," Arroyo said.

    Arroyo extolled the implementation of the strategy and its initial results: "The perception of Barça in the Asian market is optimal. Sales and marketing efforts in Asia are having a terrific response, which encourages us keep moving in this direction," Arroyo said. "The work done by the office in Hong Kong is already bearing fruit; we now have fourteen sponsors in Asia, with two new deals with banks — one in Vietnam and one in Indonesia, which are being presented while we are playing in the World Cup. We also have a dozen projects in the negotiation stage.[[CITA_2]]

    Among the examples of regional agreements in the Asian market are the partnerships with Oppo, one of the largest mobile manufacturing companies in China; with Chang, the beer company, a Club partner in Thailand and other ten countries in Southeast Asia; with Apamanshop, the Japanese chain of real estate agencies; with Toshiba, official partner in the field of medical services; and the comprehensive agreement with the Japanese multinational Panasonic, among others.

    Arroyo is optimistic about the future. "In the coming months and years we will see the fruits of our active presence in the territories that will help spread the message that football and sport contribute to the creation of athletes and people, while at the same time spreading our brand around the world," he said.

    We want to spread our singularity, as well as the values for which Barça is admired around the world
    In the coming months and years we will see new and excellent results

    FC Barcelona Xmas carol / FCB
    FC Barcelona have chosen an official Christmas carol from a project set up by the residents at la Masia and the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital with the aim of raising money to fight cancer in children

    The values that form the backbone of the education philosophy at FC Barcelona have produced an act of selfless charity that fits in perfectly with the festive season. The residents at la Masia and the sportspersons from the youth teams at FC Barcelona have created, under their own steam, the #ValorsMasia (Masia Values) project, a social initiative that highlights their awareness of those in less fortunate circumstances.

    FC Barcelona would like to add their support to this project and congratulate those involved for their contribution which once again shows la Masia not just to be a residency for elite sportspeople but also one in which development as people goes hand in hand with on the field activities. For that reason the Club has chosen the video linked to the project as the official Christmas carol for this year.

    FC BARCELONA XMAS CAROL

    #ValorsMasia has come about thanks to a collaboration between la Masia and the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu de Barcelona. During the last few months, many children from the day hospital’s oncology ward have visited the facilities at la Masia to get an idea of how the young sportspeople in the residency live. In return, the youngsters from the youth teams have visited the children at the hospital to raise their spirits and that of their families.

    Out of this collaboration came the idea of a project that could help raise money to fight cancer in children. That is where #ValorsMasia comes in and its Christmas carol, the famous Catalan song ‘Fum, fum, fum’ which has been performed by the residents under the direction of the singer Mone Teruel and her arranger, Albert Pladellorens, who is also her son.

    The videoclip above was recorded at the Ciutat Esportiva and everyone who wants to donate to the cause can do so via the website www.implica-t.org, until 30 June. The objective is to reach the symbolic figure of €142,816, the same number as the total of Barça members.

    This project has been possible thanks to the collaboration of volunteer teams from Sant Joan de Deéu, the Pallapupas organisation and the Star Wars Catalunya group.

    The videoclip above was recorded at the Ciutat Esportiva and everyone who wants to donate to the cause can do so via the website www.implica-t.org, until 30 June. The objective is to reach the symbolic figure of €142,816, the same number as the total of Barça members.

    This project has been possible thanks to the collaboration of volunteer teams from Sant Joan de Deéu, the Pallapupas organisation and the Star Wars Catalunya group.

    Elections / FCB
    Remembering the highlights of the year including presidential elections, the beginning of the Espai Barça project and the various international partnerships

    FC Barcelona bid farewell to 2015 with the club in superb shape both in regard to on-field and off-field matters. The professional teams collected a record number of titles (19) including the football team’s second ever treble, while the club reached 142,816 members and 150,000 supporters club members across the world.

    This year saw Barça, both home and abroad, lead the way in social media and continues to grow with its international partnerships. This has resulted in a hugely valuable organisation which has helped the club surpass €600million for the first time ever.

    As ever, 2015 has shown that the members have the biggest say, after the presidential elections saw a high turnout, demonstrating the democratic nature of the club. And of course, it must be mentioned that this year saw the beginning of the Espai Barça project.
