Since he has left the club at 2008 after his poor performance in World Cup 2006, but still earn people's respect on his contribution to the club. Ronaldinho's style of playing inspired me as a fan, and the idea or method they run the club make me love FC Barcelona even more. And this is the team photo of season 2007/08. But why this one or this season? hehe.. cause they are wearing my favourite FCB shirt in modern day, or maybe it’s the last one Ronaldinho worn before his departure?
Beside that, since the club founding, FC Barcelona has never worn any corporate advertisements on their shirt. On 14 July 2006, the club announced a five year agreement with UNICEF, which includes having the UNICEF logo on their shirts. The agreement has the club donate €1.5 million per year to UNICEF. And the club's motto, "Més que un club", meaning 'More than a club'. They really know how to make commercial and sport together, and doing equally good. Another example of great branding.
Got these 2 in difference years and place, but both also in off-season price! Cheers!!
Noticed some details add on around the crest, which is a reason I love this shirt so much. 'CAMP NOU 1957-2007'; its actually a 50th anniversary celebration home shirt for their stadium - Camp Nou (Catalan for "our field", often reversed in English to become Nou Camp) located in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It has a capacity of 98,787. The date and clip art of Camp Nou can refer to the label at bottom right of the shirt. This would be my dress code the day I travel to Barcelona or Spain. Or the first thing to pack! lol~
Honestly I brought the short sleeve version at first, and its the 'replica' or FAKE one! ahaha.. Short sleeve at 2007 (centre), long sleeve at 2009 (right), lastly found and brought her the girl cut last year (left). As you can compare, the colour scheme are deeper or dull on the centre fake one. But still not bad for wearing it to our futsal game. hehe..
After all, these are the few images of Camp Nou; the home ground of FC Barcelona. From past, present to the coming up…
