The iconic New York skyscrapers make a nod to Barcelona on Wednesday for his ten years of collaboration with Unicef
New York unveiled to the world on Wednesday that his heart is Barça. The most emblematic building of the most famous city on Earth will go to sleep wearing the club’s colors. The Empire State Building will light up in blue and red in recognition of the club and its Foundation for the ten years of partnership with Unicef. A symbolic act that will also serve to welcome the city to Barcelona and to its new headquarters.
Vice President Jordi Cardoner ex football player Ronaldinho and Barca will be responsible for carrying out the formal ceremony at the Empire State to turn the lights ready for the occasion. Barca colors will remain linked to the building throughout the New York night, in view of the millions of tourists who gather daily in the Big Apple.
The staff of the club, starting with the president Josep Maria Bartomeu, has moved to Manhattan to open a new sales office which should mean an injection of income for barcelonistas coffers, an act that will take place on Tuesday at 250 Park Avenue , one of the nerve centers of the city.
