Leo Messi is one of the players supporting 'Tant se val d'on venim' / FCB

The FC Barcelona first team players and coach are amongst the first to lend their support to the campaign ‘Tant se val d’on venim’ to help the refugees in Europe that has been launched by the FC Barcelona Foundation in collaboration with the Red Cross. The initiative was launched on Friday by vice president Jordi Cardoner and first team players Andrés Iniesta, Leo Messi, Neymar, Gerard Piqué, Sergio Busquets and coach Luis Enrique have all taken part in a series of videos and photo sessions in support of the campaign which aims to raise money for the refugees and to raise awareness of their plight as they arrive in Europe, as well as contributing to their efforts to settle in the continent.

The blaugrana players will also take part in the image that will form the face of the campaign and in various photographs that will distributed via different social networks and the Club’s official channels. FC Barcelona wants to take advantage of their presence in the media and the Club and the players’ ability to reach people to highlight the importance of contributing and helping the refugees.


The video that the players have recorded follows on from the first that was shown at the launch of the project on Friday and has as its slogan the title of the campaign ‘Tant se val d’on venim’, which forms part of the Barça anthem.

Gestures of support on Sunday against Levante

The video will be shown via the Club’s official channels and will also be shown before Sunday’s league game against Levante. There will be other gestures and initiatives to raise money and promote the campaign. On the esplanade outside the main stand there will be a stand with volunteers from the Red Cross and at the entrances to the stadium there will be tables with information and suggestion boxes.

The Barça players will take the field wearing special FC Barcelona Foundation campaign shirts in collaboration with the Red Cross. The Levante players will wear a Professional Football League (LFP) campaign shirt in collaboration with UNICEF and that also has the support of FC Barcelona.
