“Barcelona’s commitment to growing esports is part of the club’s digital push strategy. The aim is to become the leading brand in Esports in the years to come while building a system to connect with new audiences. On the other hand, we also want to bring the image of the club to more Chinese and American audiences.”

Sources from Dot Esports, Upcoming, and Dexerto revealed that Barcelona had bought S2V Esports’ slot and will participate in LVP SuperLiga from the 2022 season.

The presence of Barcelona promises to help SuperLiga attract more spectators 

Reports from LEC reporter Wooloo said that Barcelona has also completed the first three signings of top laner “Dreedy,” Jungler “LeBron,” and mid laner “twohoyrz.” Before acquiring the competition slot from S2V Esports, Barcelona signed a cooperation contract with Tencent. That was the time when the team playing in La Liga wanted to own an LPL team.

However, due to limited financial resources, Barcelona turned to LVP SuperLiga and bought a lesser-known team, S2V Esports. The Next 2022 Season promises to be more interesting with the arrival of Barcelona. Barcelona will even have the opportunity to face a team owned by midfielder Gerard Pique and streamer Ibai Llanos.
