Who are the Barça Legends?

The Barça Legends are the result of an FC Barcelona programme to cherish the legacy of the players that have worn the first team shirt over the years. It is also another way to globalise the Barça name and values through its former players, as well as a means for stars to continue playing the game they love following retirement from professional duty. The idea behind the scheme is to arrange a series of matches and associated events in different parts of the world. In the near future, more Barça Legends’ fixtures will be announced.
