Barcelona Stadium Camp Nou to Change to Spotify Camp Nou
With Spotify’s new deal, the club will finally get the income they need to attempt the transfers they want next summer. Plus, they will get to compete in all tournaments as they have always done over the last two decades. But it will be at the expense of the stadium name.
According to a report, FC Barcelona’s new official name will be Spotify Camp Nou as soon as the deal between the two parties becomes official. Those €280,000,000 will be divided between three seasons in equal parts. Rumours have it that most of this money will be invested in the possible signing of Erling Haaland, Borussia Dortmund’s IT player that every club in Europe wants.
If the deal is finalized, the agreement is that both the men and women’s football teams will sport the streaming service’s logo in the front. Plus, the deal was to get the stadium’s naming right. A decision that didn’t sit well with a lot of people in the club. Reverter resigns amid a new deal with Spotify.
Reports have it that Barcelona is yet to agree with Spotify, it is said that the CEO of the club didn’t agree with this new deal and decided to step down from his position effective immediately. Ferran Reverter considered offering publicity in the front of the jerseys and the stadium naming rights was too high of a price to pay for FC Barcelona.
