Meanwhile, Barcelona on Thursday approved the sale of a minority of its licensing and merchandising division and up to 25% of the proceeds from their LaLiga TV rights season to improve their financial situation.

The club board hopes that with this they will be able to finish the financial year without any loss and increase their spending limit. Club president Joan Laporta said they expect to sell up to 49.9% of retail operation Barcelona Licensing and Merchandising (BLM) for 200-300 million euros and a minimum of 200 million each in 10% of LaLiga TV rights for 25 years.

The plan to sell the BLM received 89.3% support from 636 participants (only 14.2% of the club’s total representatives) in the referendum, while the TV rights deal received 86.8% support. “When we arrived last year, we found ourselves in a very complicated financial situation. We could not afford the May 2021 payroll. Investors were asking for 200 million euros which we did not have,” Laporta said Told the assembly.

“We believe that using club assets to create financial levers is the best way to get Barca back to be competitive again.”

Laporta said Barcelona had opted for a 1.994 billion euro investment from CVC Capital Partners with LaLiga in exchange for 11% of the TV rights over the next 50 years because they disagreed over the amount and length of the deal.

“We want to recover this property in 25 years. The (CVC) operation that was presented was collective and Barca has its own special value,” he said. “I’m in favor of helping but at this point we have to clean our house first.”

Laporta, who presided over one of Barca’s most successful tours between 2003 and 2010, was elected last year for a second term with the Catalan giants after the previous board resigned due to the club’s deteriorating finances and other controversies. He inherited a deep financial crisis exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and was unable to re-sign Barca club great Lionel Messi, restricted by LaLiga’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules, to Paris Saint-Germain last summer. as a free agent. Laporta said the club’s total debt in August stood at 1.35 billion euros, of which 673 million are owed to banks.
