Qatar Royal Family has become the official sponsors for Barca

I wouldn't say that this is the worst news since election of Sandro Rosell, there were a procession of them. But this one was the least expected. According to Javier Faux, Barca vice-president FC Barcelona has reched an agreement in principle to sport Qatar foundation's Logo on the much holy FC Barcelona jersey. The deal is worth 30 million per year and will run for five years. That mostly explained the recent cosiness with Qatar royal family and Qatare Kingdome by representees of the club. Javie Faus also didn't let go off a chance to take an invisible swipe at the previous regime. He said that if the debt wasn't this enormous, this deal wouldn't have been necessary. Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development is a private, chartered, non-profit organization in the state of Qatar. They may be a non-profit organisation but the initial picture given as some organisation which helps the needy is pretty wrong. It is an organisation which is basically like a University. It looks like they also act as the PR agency of the Qatar Royal family. Otherwise someone care to explain why a non-profit organisation will spend 150 million in such a deal. Many Barca fans around the world are pretty upset with this decision, but what's the fuss. The Catalan members who make the decision has already supported this idea.

"The Catalan members who make the decision has already supported this idea."

That's tecnically not true, after the voting of the "asamblea de compromisaris" in 2003 the statutes of the Club were renewed, in the new ones it is required that the "asamblea" aproves any negotiations for any deal in the team jersey.

Rumours about a vote of no confidence have already started...

This is something that Barcelona's President is doing knowing barcelona Fans will not like it. 150M€ is a lot of money, but you can either get those as extra or try to adjust expenses and leave the jersey clean. Some people have got together in facebook to protest against this, let's see if they can make enough noise to stop this initiative
