No to commercial logo on FC Barcelona jerseys
Petition Background (Preamble):
Blaugrana vice-president Javier Faus explained that the club will receive €30m each season for years, starting on July 1, 2011 running until June 30, 2016, plus bonuses for trophies won that could total €5m. During the 2010/11 campaign the club will also receive a further €15m for the concept of commercial rights, bringing the total of the deal to €170m.
FC Barcelona lost something forever: their status as the only club in top-level football still without a sponsor on their shirts. As the current coach of the Catalan national team, and Barcelona legend, Johann Cryuff said: "With this deal with Qatar, Barcelona isn't more than a club any longer, it's just one more club."
Is it worth losing your individuality in exchange for gaining an amount of money that is worth less than 10% of the budget? We think not, because this uniqueness, together with all that it represents to FC Barcelona club, is priceless.
Please sign this petition to save one of the symbols of our beloved Barca.
As fans, we have the utmost respect for our club and the board elected by the socis, but we cannot accept the shirt-sponsorship agreement with Qatar Sports Investment.
For 111 years our commercial-free red-and-blue-striped tops have gained an iconic status worldwide and are one more reason to be a proud supporter of FC Barcelona. Our Club will lose something forever: its status as the only club in top-level football without a sponsor on their shirts.
We ask the board of directors of FC Barcelona to stop the implementation of the shirt-sponsorship agreement with the Qatar Sports Investment and any other commercial sponsor, and instead develop current deals or find other solutions that does not involve putting logos on the jerseys.
