Facilities for FC Barcelona pulled $169 million in total revenue for the 2022-23 financial year, driving a year of “record figures in the commercial area,” the club announced. 

Facilities revenue was 18% more than what Barcelona budgeted at the start of the season and 4% more than recorded during the 2018-19 season, the last complete year before the Covid-19 pandemic. The figure considers venues for Barcelona’s men’s and women’s teams across soccer and basketball.

The club’s historic soccer stadium, Spotify Camp Nou, made a record-breaking $106.7 million for the 2022-23 season as the men’s team won the La Liga title. It was also the first season in club history with over 1 million tickets sold for men’s matches, with 1,021,001 sold. 

Barcelona made $106.7 million in total sponsorships last season, most of which came from Spotify’s stadium naming and jersey deal signed last year. The music streaming service reportedly pays over $300 million for that long-term sponsorship deal. 

Sponsorship revenue for women’s soccer reached a club-record $8.5 million across nine partnerships, helping raise the team’s income by 95% over its 2021-22 season.

Ticketing revenue for Barça’s women’s team reached $2.9 million. The club’s basketball business recorded $4.9 million, a 126% increase from the 2018/2019 pre-pandemic season. 

The club’s Barça Licensing & Merchandising retail department closed the 2022-23 fiscal year with a 54% increase in physical store sales compared to the 2021-22 season. E-commerce sales in 2022-23 increased 47% compared to the previous season, and women’s clothing sales grew 275% during that period. 

During the 2022-23 season, Barcelona signed six new sponsorship agreements worth $39 million in funds that will count towards its current 2023-24 financial year. Among those is KSI and Logan Paul’s Prime Hydration deal announced last week to become the official hydration partner of FC Barcelona, replacing Gatorade.
