Barcelona are a historic team in Europe. The club has banked on their marketability for decades. Their store and museum were some of the best attractions for tourist before the pandemic. The Catalan giants announced earlier that these two institutions will be temporarily closed.

The biggest reason behind closing the store and the museum is the low influx of visitors. Since the mobility restrictions, Barça have seen a low amount of visits to the Camp Nou, which has caused low turnouts for the store and the museum. During the pandemic, the club couldn’t receive anyone and, lately, no one could enter the place.

Ex-president Josep Maria Bartomeu tried to get fans back to Camp Nou but in vain. For Barcelona, the economical crisis continues and the store, museum, and game days were some of the city’s biggest attractions, and the low amount of tourists and visitors means the club is forced to close it. The COVID-19 cases in Spain are rising, so that might be a wise decision.

As a Lebanese teenager who never had the chance to support their local team, I fell in love with the club that was FC Barcelona at the start of the decade. I always was passionate about writing and this is exactly what I am looking for: sharing my insights and opinions on football.
