Messi and SI

Sports Illustrated with Leo Messi

Sports Illustrated, one of the most prestigious sports publications in the world, turns its focus on the big-name players of the upcoming World Cup in Brazil.

Among them is Leo Messi, who headlines the edition of the magazine that will go on sale this Wednesday in the United States. Other players featured include Liverpool’s striker Luis Suárez, United States captain Clint Dempsey, and Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

Sports Illustrated is one of the most influential publications in the world of sports. The 60-year-old magazine has created a unique and recognizable brand and the news of which athlete will be featured on the cover of the publication has become a highly anticipated event in the world of sports.

This isn’t the first time the American publication has featured FC Barcelona. Last year, Sports Illustrated collected statements from TV personalities, managers, players and football legends about Barça and published them in the story titled The World’s Team. That same year, Sports Illustrated columnist Grant Wahl sat down with fcbarcelona.com to about the growth of FC Barcelona in the United States.
