FC Barcelona has added an eighth language to its website: www.fcbarcelona.co.id. The inclusion of Indonesian implies a major step forward for the Club, which is continuing to expand its global presence, thus fostering links between Barça supporters wherever they might be in the world.
Following the recent complete revamp of the website, this latest language is yet another example of the club’s desire to promote itself to every corner of the globe. As well as versions in Catalan, Spanish and Catalan, the Japanese version was completely restructured this year, and Chinese, Arabic and French versions were created. Eight languages go to show how broad the global dimension of FC Barcelona is becoming, and its digital presence is already widely respected in the international community. Some 33 million page visits are made by more than 7.6 million single users every month.
