Statements from Xavier Asensi, Managing Director of FC Barcelona Asia Pacific:

“We are very happy to welcome Shanghai Pudong Development Bank Credit Card Centre to the FC Barcelona family. We have a strong and solid synergy with SPDBCCC. Not only because its brand image fits perfectly with the club, but also because there are similarities between their customers and a lot of our Chinese fans. They are passionate people with dreams. I think that, with the release of the SPD Bank - Barça Dream Team Credit Card in 2017, we will be able to connect even more closely with our more than 50 million Chinese fans and football lovers in general in China."
