Coronavirus, Barcelona’s historic choice: the Camp Nou stadium changes its name to raise funds

BARCELONA (SPAIN) – Barcelona takes the field against the coronavirus with a historic decision that is gathering great acclaim in all parts of the world.

The Catalan club, on the basis of what happens in other world plants, has decided to sell the name of its stadium to raise funds against the coronavirus.

It would not be the first stage to have a sponsor's name, there are many others all over the world.

From Emirates Stadium in London, home of Arsenal, to the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig, Germany. Without forgetting the Juventus Allianz Stadium.

The only big difference between Barcelona and the other clubs would be to not collect this money for its purposes but to allocate it to charity for anti coronavirus purposes.

Thus the legendary Camp Nou stadium , which has hosted the games of glorious Barcelona since 1957, is about to change its name for a noble cause.

Close to the imposing structure there are other club installations such as La Masia and the Mini Estadi, the stadium where Barcelona's second team plays.

Camp Nou hosted two Champions League / UEFA Champions League finals: the first on 24 May 1989, when Milan defeated Steaua Bucharest 4-0; the second on May 26, 1999, on the occasion of Manchester United's victory over Bayern Munich.

In total there are five European finals held at Camp Nou, to which are added the numerous finals of the King's Cup and the matches of the final stages of the 1964 European championship, the 1982 world championship and the 1992 Olympics ( source Wikipedia).
