Barça negotiating Microsoft sponsorship deal

Catalan radio station Catalunya Ràdio reports that F.C. Barcelona is negotiating a sponsorship agreement with U.S. based corporation Microsoft. If agreed upon, the deal would be worth 2 million euros.

Barcelona president Joan Laporta, along with Barcelona board members, players, and coaches will later today visit the Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington. Redmond is a city in the vicinity of Seattle, where Barcelona will play the second game of its American tour on Thursday against the Seattle Sounders.

I would like them to strike a deal with Rupert Murdoch. Now he invests serious money in football rights!

Seriously, that's the worst news I read about Barca in recent years.

Here's an article that should be read by every one of us. It's about a global agenda that the foundations of Rockefeller and Bill Gates are working on together. These two foundations are anything but philanthropic. I urge everyone to find more information about the nefarious agenda behind both foundations and the network that they represent. Anyway, here's an article. Very interesting. You'll learn something you never knew before.

Since Barca won the tremple, Laporta is flirting with the dark side don't you think?

The game is actually Wednesday night local time and 4:30am Barcelona time… may be a little misleading for some readers.

What's wrong with Microsoft? By the way, that article is the driveling of a paranoid fool. The things that masquerade as "research" these days baffle me.

If that scum bag, Murdoch, has anything to do with Barcelona, I would be ashamed to support the team!

agree with you, barcafan (BiH), as ppl don't need only articles to know about microsoft!!!!!
don't like the idea of this sponsorshipdeal, as it's surely not barca-like

Hey Murdoch paid billions of pounds for the rights to the EPL. He is a good businessman and it's ironic how an 'Aussie' is controlling the rights to a British national sport. Anyhow he knows the money is in the world game and he will be knocking on Barca's door. Bandwagon or not he is better than American companies.

2 million euros from microsoft? Bill gates wipes his ass with 2 million euro, if were going to associate with them we should at least get serious money. Barca is an apple kind of team anyway, eff microsoft.

HAHA Ruport is a fucking walking cancer! He is the same shit as American corporations just from a different asshole. His Fox News in the States pushed the opinion polls for a war in Iraq that has left millions of children dead, injured, or orphaned. We have the Unicef logo on our shirt and having Murdoch involved in our club is antithetical to our philosophy to say the least.
