Mission, Vision, Values, and Principles
The Barça Foundation makes the credo 'More than a Club' a reality by using sports and its values to help bring about real change in the lives of disadvantaged children and youth.
To provide support to the most vulnerable children and youth — through sports and values-based education — with the goal of contributing to a more egalitarian and inclusive society.
The be the world's preeminent sports foundation contributing to the social well-being of children and youth.
The Barça Foundation sets out to show what sports can achieve from a social standpoint, while projecting the Club as an institution that looks — beyond results on the field — to make a transformative social impact. And we do it through the Club's values: Humility, Effort, Ambition, Respect, and Teamwork.
We are aware that social problems like the exclusion and marginalization of children and youth stem from social instability and violence. That's why — as a highly committed and responsible organization teaching the values inherent in sports — we strive to leverage the strength of our world-renowned brand to bring about change across the globe.
To improve critical aspects affecting children and youth, who are the future of our society.
To use the strength and notoriety of sports to raise awareness about issues of equality and to prevent violent behavior.
We want to do it through the leadership of FC Barcelona, a club with the ability to contribute unique solutions to bring about change.
It's very important to be humble both on and off the field. Respect your opponent when you win. Congratulate your opponent when you lose.
Win or lose, one must always strive to improve — to get better each and every day, both as a player and as a person.
Respect is essential in our sport. Without respect, football loses its meaning.
While I've been fortunate to have scored many goals, I never would have done it without my teammates. Football is a TEAM sport. If you don't work as a team, you will never achieve anything.
