Club President Sandro Rosell and Manuel Caballero, Director of Audi España, attended the handover of the vehicles to the first team squad. "For another year we are proud to be collaborating in the success which FC Barcelona is enjoying,” said Caballero. This is the sixth year that Audi and FC Barcelona have worked together and the handover of new cars to the players is a symbolic gesture of their long-standing partnership.

Ciudad Deportiva - a special setting

The setting for the handover ceremony, the Ciutat Esportiva, couldn’t have been more appropriate. The training facility and the original deal between Barça and Audi were both opened and signed in the same year. The Ciutat Esportiva, where tomorrow’s stars are being forged, saw a new young star today, the Audi Q3.

The players still seem to prefer the Audi Q7, though one or two, such as Puyol or Busquets, have plumped for the more sporty RS5.

Agreement till 2014

A few weeks ago, the deal between FC Barcelona and Audi was extended until 2014, with Audi becoming a Premium Partner and Official Vehicle for the Club all over the world. The two organisations first joined up in 2006 with a sponsorship deal that highlights their shared values of sport. Elegance and dynamism have cemented their relationship over the years.
