FC Barcelona teams up with Legends International and Innovative Partnerships Group to boost revenue of future Spotify Camp Nou

FC Barcelona is teaming up with Legends International to promote the design and marketing of the future VIP boxes and seats at the renovated Spotify Camp Nou, the epicentre of Espai Barça. This new alliance comes together with one with the Innovative Partnerships Group (IPG 360), with which the club has already started working on the search for new partners and strategic associations for the project. 

Barça is joining forces with two leading international companies – Legends International and IPG 360 – with the aim of maximising the generation of new revenue associated with the future stadium.

Based in the United States, both companies are among the leaders in their respective areas of expertise and provide a vision of the best practices and trends on the international side in the commercial use of large sports facilities. Their experience will play a key role in the generation of new income, a fundamental element for the project to restructure the Spotify Camp Nou, as well as Espai Barça in general. Two of the main ways to achieve this goal are new partnership agreements linked with the stadium, and a renewed offer of VIP spaces and experiences once the work is finished.

ALSD International events focus on delivering best practice insights and learnings when it comes to optimising revenue through New Builds, Renovations and Service Expansions. See what you missed at ALSD International 2022 hosted at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium here.

Regarding the former area, the current agreement with Spotify for the title rights of the Camp Nou was just the first of a series of additional agreements on which the club is working with leading companies in sectors such as sustainability, mobility and technology, and which should be closed in the coming months.

The future Stadium will offer a new range of 100% Barça experiences, in addition to a design that incorporates a wide variety of VIP boxes and seats of much higher quality than at present, and in line with the best European stadiums; the aim being to treble the number of places currently being offered.

These proposed revenue sources are two of the most essential for the viability of the financing plan proposed for the project. The plan is for them to jointly report to the club more than 120 million euros per year once the new stadium is finished and at full capacity.

Espai Barça

Espai Barça, the project to transform the FC Barcelona facilities in the Les Corts neighbourhood of Barcelona and the Estadi Johan Cruyff at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, is already becoming a reality. A project that unites sport and architecture, and which will be a space to be shared by members and for welcoming visitors 365 days of the year.
