In the living history of FC Barcelona, they first got a commercial sponsor in 2011, Qatar Foundation, a non profit organization that is capable of supplying funds to the FCB amounted to 150 million euros over five years. This is the first time Barca received funding through mutualism their jersey logo on the chest, after they never completely received funding from the sponsor logo on the front of the jersey.
Actually, the first time Barca open the 'slot' logo on the chest jersey is since the 2007/08 season, when the UNICEF logo on the jersey linked with elegant blue-red. However, did you know that the UNICEF logo on display during the years 2007 - 2011 is not a form of sponsorship? Indeed, it is a form of 'charity' Barcelona against humanity. Rather than getting the flow of funds from UNICEF, the Catalan team was actually disbursed 1.5 million euros per year to the humanitarian agencies (Prof Andre Richelieu et al, 2008). How glorious.
In the UK, almost all the elite football clubs have implemented CSR to the public. Even a team like Everton also intensively perform social responsibility to the society. The shape is diverse, there are on a football training free to the public, there are humanitarian assistance to Africa, and there is also doing social assistance in the field of education. In 2005, total spending for the humanity of the Premier League clubs according to Deloitte is reached over US1.56 trillion rupiah! How glorious.
When asked why they do that? Though it's just the football, one of the executives of charities football clubs in the UK said: "it's not always about delivering soccer Programmes, it" s about creating opportunities through football ". Then the other is answered like this: "The answer to the question, 'Why do (the football club) do this?' Is that we would be foolish if we did not?". So they turned out really charity, yes! How glorious.
We certainly often heard, not just the club do charity, but also some of the top players. Ah, you might say something like, "Yes it bluntly, they are rich". But, instead of the financial scale of the problem, in fact it is the inner call in the liver, or perhaps the term 'spiritual intelligence'. A Mickey Evans, the player nowhere told the club Plymouth Argyle Independent channel three quarters revenue farewell match for a charity. Jody Craddock -I just know his name- had also donated large amounts to a hospital. Geoff Thomas, the former England player, set up Geoff Thomas Foundation. Rob Green, a former West Ham goalkeeper, had climbed Kilimanjaro to reap social funds will be donated to Africa. The most famous, Craig Bellamy, players 'are not rich-rich' so this was very active in the humanitarian field, to the extent that he is often mistaken perform 'imaging'. Some figures do not like to show off their social action to the public, one of them is Gareth Southgate who never refused a social donation campaign, after one of the organizers of the event intend to publish the names of the donors. This is in accordance with paragraph adapted from scripture; "You give charity, either overtly, or covertly, but if furtive, it's better". To be sure, both Bellamy and Southgate when dicibir that their noble action is to imaging, Bellamy was instantly answered: "There is more publicity the more cheesy than this (donating), if I want to". How glorious.
