Barça second in global ranking via shirt sponsorship income
The Catalan side confirmed a new sponsorship deal with Japanese company Rakuten this morning at the Auditori 1899.
Barça leap-frog to second
The financial aspects of the deal have not been made official by the Catalan club but are reportedly worth as much as €60 million per season if the club win La Liga and the Champions League, which would see the LaLiga giants leap from sixth position to second behind Manchester United's in the ranking of most lucrative kit sponsorship deals. The Red Devils €71m-a-season deal with Chevrolet tops the list. Barca's current Qatar Airways arrangement brings in €33.5m per season.
