Futbol Club Barcelona and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Team Up to End Polio and Give Every Child an Equal Shot at Life
Date:7/28/2011

ur partnership with the Gates Foundation underscores our long-standing commitment to making the world a better place."

"Just as football is a universal sport with the power to transform lives, vaccines are a universal tool with the power to save lives. Fans know that FC Barcelona is more than a club, and ending polio is more than a goal. When fans yell ‘Finish it!’, it can be very powerful.  We’d like to take that same energy and help finish polio once and for all,” said Guardiola.

The partnership allows the Gates Foundation to use images and video of the FC Barcelona team to support awareness efforts. The two parties will use their own financial resources to fund marketing and promotional activities and will not be compensated for their partnership efforts.  

FC Barcelona is widely known as the most socially committed club in the world, transmitting on-the-field excellence to off-the-field social projects. It uses the power of sports to reach children and youth with messages about health. It has been committed to social issues for more than 100 years, working with numerous partners to help improve the lives of children worldwide. For example, FC Barcelona provides 0.7% of its revenue to its foundation and has a global alliance with UNICEF.
