FC Barcelona has established itself as a European heavyweight, with a major influence in not only the world of football; but the entirety of the sporting realm.

However, with environmental concerns in mind, recent information indicates that even the Blaugranes are not exempt from measures aimed at enforcing sustainability in the Catalonian region.

Barcelona to be affected by new conservation measures

As per MARCA, in light of growing water scarcity with no rain expected for the upcoming weeks, the Generalitat is implementing water conservation measures.

And one of the measures under consideration is the prohibition of football players taking showers in sports facilities.

Such practices will see the first-team players from Barcelona, ​​Girona, and Espanyol prevented from partaking in a refreshing ablution after matches.

Despite such basic facilities deemed as primary requirements at large European clubs, the reported measures are a reflection of the escalating severity of the water crisis.

The report argues that Barcelona are yet to receive official contacts from the Generalitat regarding this matter and that in any case, it would not take effect until the following year.

Even so, matters are already being taken seriously, with Barcelona and Girona recently agreeing to take action to face the drought.

In fact, Barcelona have already implemented pre-emptive changes, such as cutting back on irrigation in the club’s practice areas.

However, the threat of drought has particularly cast an ominous shadow over Catalonia, and professional football teams residing in this region may end up paying a heavy brunt, given the constant usage of a normally readily available resource.

Time will tell how the situation develops and whether players as renowned as Robert Lewandowski, Ilkay Gundogan, and Pedri end up having to oblige with these measures, but such grim possibilities certainly exist.
