BARCELONA, Aug. 12 (EUROPA PRESS) –
FC Barcelona has confirmed this Friday the sale of 24.5 percent of Barca Studios, the club’s multimedia and audiovisual production company, to the company Orpheus Media for a total of 100 million euros, in a new economic lever activated by the entity in order to be able, among other things, to register the signings within the salary limit set by LaLiga Santander.
“FC Barcelona announces the sale of 24.5% of Barca Studios to the company Orpheus Media, managed by Mr. Jaume Roures, an audiovisual producer with extensive experience in the creation of audiovisual and digital content, for an amount of 100 million euros”, announced the blaugrana club.
According to FC Barcelona, this agreement complements what was already signed on July 29 with ‘Socios.com’ –sale of another 24.5 percent of Barca Studios– and will serve to accelerate the growth of the digital strategy, NFT and Web.3 of the club.
The sale has been carried out in accordance with the authorization of the General Assembly of Members of FC Barcelona held on October 23.
These 100 million euros should be used to try to register the five summer signings –Kessie, Christensen, Raphinha, Lewandowski and Kounde–, as well as Sergi Roberto or Ousmane Dembele, in LaLiga Santander in time for them to play this Saturday against Rayo Vallecano on the first day of the new season.
