FC Barcelona - more than a club, a new global hope for vulnerable children

Sunday 10 September 2006 - Joan Marc Simon

The current Champion’s League winner the Futbol Club Barcelona has come up with an idea to link sports, solidarity and support to a supranational institution such as United Nations. Instead of using the historic maroon-and-blue jersey to raise funds for the club, the FCB will pay to carry advertising with the UNICEF logo.

UNICEF will cash in on 1.5 million euros per year during the 5 coming years for allowing the Catalan team to wear their jersey with the UNICEF logo on it. This event is even more remarkable if we take into account that FCB is the only major European soccer team not to wear advertising on their t-shirt and this is the first time in 107 years of history to break this rule.

I think its good for a soccer team to do this kind of thing instead of just promoting brand advertising on their jersey. Here's how the new Barcelona jersey will look like:
