Neymar's presentation and Alexia's goal in the final of the Copa de la Reina are two of the most viewed videos of the month
Boom of subscribers in 2013
Barça’s YouTube channel has more than 900,000 subscribers. In the first half of 2013, the channel has gained the same number of subscribers (363,000) than it did for the whole of 2012.
FC Barcelona’s official YouTube channel managed to break the 10-million view barrier this June, with one week left before the month comes to an end. The number of views confirms that Barça’s channel is the top viewed sports club channel on the platform. Four of the videos posted to the channel have rocketed into the channel’s top 30 most viewed videos of all time, and the number of overall views - 10.3 million - will likely increase seeing that there’s one week remaining until the end of the month of June.
Neymar’s presentation at the Camp Nou, on June 3, was one of the most viewed live events on YouTube. More than 1.6 million people tuned in to watch the Brazilian in the Barça strip. On June 3 alone, the channel picked up more than 4.1 million video views. To give some perspective, the minutes of video watched that day amounts to nearly 38 years.
Juggling seen by more 2 million people
Neymar juggling the ball on the pitch of the Camp Nou is among the most watched videos of the month. More than 2.2 million people have watched the video, making the clip the third most watched video in the history of Barça’s YouTube channel. Only Guardiola’s farewell to the Camp Nou (2.7 million) and Justin Bieber’s visit with the team (2.5 million) have more views.
Alexia’s phenomenal goal
Along with Neymar, the clip of the fantastic goal scored last weekend by Alexia for the FC Barcelona Women’s team has also been racking up views on YouTube. The video currently has more than 500,000 views.
