Barça have activated a total of four financial levers to date
Barça have sold 24.5% of Barça Studios to Orpheus Media, a company managed by Jaume Roures, for 100 million euros. This is the club's fourth such lever to raise more funds.
On June 29th, FC Barcelona announced an agreement with the American investment company Sixth Street Partners for the sale of 10% of the club's television rights for the next 25 years.
They gained 267 million euros in capital, an amount that will allow them to end the 2021/22 financial year with positive numbers in terms of net revenue and also reduce their debt. Sixth Street initially invested 207.5 million euros and will keep 10% of the club's revenue from TV rights from LaLiga for the next 25 years.
On 22nd July, the club reached another agreement with Sixth Street Partners, this time for the transfer of 15% of the TV rights for the next 25 years. The American investor, which now owns 25% of the rights in total, paid 400 million euros.
The third deal was made official on the day of Jules Koundé's presentation, on 1st August. Juan Laporta announced that the club had sold 25% of Barça Studios to Socios.com for 100 million euros. Laporta was optimistic about registering all the players before 13th August, when Xavi's team will face Rayo as they kick-start the new season.
This morning, the club officially announced the activation of the fourth lever and will sell an additional 24.5% of Barça Studios to Orpheus Media, a company managed by Jaume Roures, for 100 million euros. The agreement complements the one signed on 29th July with Socios.com, and the club hopes it will help grow their digital, NFT and Web.3 strategy.
