“We’re thrilled to be working with a club like FC Barcelona for this incredible opportunity,” said Ivana Kirkbride, Chief Content Officer of go90. “go90 and Barça share a similar objective: support the growth of soccer fandom in the United States, by providing access and opportunity to fans like never before.”
“One year ago we opened our Americas office in New York City with the primary goal of bringing the club closer to its millions of fans here,” said Francesco Calvo, FC Barcelona’s Chief Revenue Officer. “Our partnership with Verizon means we’ll be able to reach more Barça fans, and soccer fans, in the States than ever before – and importantly, on connected devices. Now our US fans will have a backstage, insiders pass to what it’s like to be at Camp Nou for nearly every match. It’s an incredible experience for them, and we’re looking forward to kicking it off this season.”
