This extended partnership, which will span the next five seasons up to 2029, promises to broaden CUPRA’s support to encompass all of FC Barcelona’s professional sports teams.

The event was attended by footballers Robert Lewandowski and Jana Fernández, basketball player James Nnaji, futsal player Miquel Feixas, handball player Domen Makuc and roller hockey player Matías Pascual.
