FC Barcelona will be wearing the logo of new sponsors Qatar Foundation from July 2011 onwards and replace the UNICEF on the front. A joint Qatar Foundation/UNICEF logo for the front couldn't be worked out.
"It has been decided that the Qatar Foundation logo will go on the front of the shirt, on the breast," Barca vice president Javier Faus said at a news conference and added, "In the end, there will be only two words 'Qatar Foundation' in yellow. UNICEF will go on the back underneath the player's name."
FC Barcelona had tried to work out a design in which both the logos could be retained on the front of the teams shirt, but that was not possible so the high paying Qatar Foundation, who are paying 30 Millions Euros for per season, will have their logo on the front.
But if the UNICEF logo would be allowed on the back of the jersey's in international competition will have to be seen. In the Spanish Primera Division it is allowed so no issues and Barca plan to sell all their replicas with UNICEF on then, but if UEFA would allow it in the Champions League would have to be seen.
