Barcelona to launch Barça Studios

Spanish LaLiga football club Barcelona has approved the formation of an in-house division for the creation, production and distribution of its audiovisual content.

Barça Studios will commence operations on July 1 and will also be responsible for the club’s in-house television channel, Barça TV.

Approval was granted during a board of directors meeting held earlier this week.

Barcelona said in a statement: “This project aims to generate a new seal of prestige and quality in Barca productions, both for our own media and in external collaborations.”
