Why Barcelona are wearing an owl logo on their shirt vs Real Madrid


The game is one of the biggest in football and is sure to produce an entertaining match.

Ahead of the game, both Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are in fine form and Sunday’s result could have a major barring on who wins La Liga this season.

Barcelona’s form in Europe is not great, but they currently sit top of La Liga with seven wins and one draw from eight matches.

Real Madrid also have seven wins and one draw, but they have a seven-worse goal difference.

This comes with Barcelona conceding just one goal in the league so far this season.

When the Catalan giants step out onto the pitch in Madrid, fans will see that their shirts have an owl logo printed on them in place of the usual sponsor.

The reason for this is because Barcelona are joining with main sponsor Spotify to celebrate the achievements of popular rapper-singer Drake. The Canadian is an internationally acclaimed artist, a winner of four Grammy awards and the first to surpass 50 billion streams on Spotify. Barcelona will wear the artist’s owl logo for the Clasico fixture against Madrid on Sunday. Drake, who has won over 275 awards during his career, took to social media expressed his delight: “This doesn’t feel real but it is.”

Barcelona’s vice-president of marketing, Juli Guiu also spoke out about the decision: “For the first time in our history, we are replacing the name of our main partner on the front of the jersey with an internationally acclaimed artist in Drake, winner of 4 Grammy awards and record breaker in different categories, such as being the first artist to accumulate 50 billion streams on Spotify. This initiative shows our potential to become a unique platform to offer experiences that help bring us closer to our fans while reaching out to new audiences around the world.
