In addition to that, Spotify will use the partnership to shine a spotlight on artists from all over the world. The goal is to bring “football and music together, giving a global stage to players and artists at Spotify Camp Nou”. The partnership plans are subject to the ratification of the Barcelona Member Assembly. It will take place in early April.
Spotify’s Chief Freemium Business Officer, Alex Norstrom, will offer more insight into what fans can expect from this unique deal. When it comes to the reason behind this unprecedented partnership between Spotify and FC Barcelona, he comes with the following answer>
“It’s about connecting fans with artists of every kind—players and artists, music and sports. Barcelona fans and audio lovers on the platform will come together to form a massive, globally-connected community. The community will bridge the worlds of music and football. The vision for the partnership is to create a new platform to help artists interact with Barcelona’s global community of fans.”
The goal is to make Spotify grow as a worldwide brand. There are a few partners that have this sort of scale and global reach, and FC Barcelona is clearly one of them. According to the company, through the partnership, they’ll be able to connect music and football fans from Barcelona to Mumbai. In the same way, from Jakarta to Rio de Janeiro. As per the company, this is a really unique opportunity.
Worth noting that this partnership is a “first-of-its-kind”. However, it may create a precedent for the near future. More of the streaming giants may see potential in the massively popular football clubs. Especially in this year, which has a FIFA World Cup scheduled for the end of the year. We are curious to see the real effects brought by the partnership.
