A report carried out by Deloitte on FC Barcelona’s economic impact on the city of Barcelona during the 2014/15 season has reflected an increase in wealth generated by the Club with respect to the study presented last year corresponding to the 2013/14 season.
The most recent study shows that FC Barcelona’s economic impact was €906 million, representing 1.5% of the city’s gross domestic product (GDP).
That’s a 19.3% increase when compared to the 2013/14 season, for which the Club generated €759 million (1.2% of GDP).
The report was presented on Tuesday at an event organised by Barcelona Cultura, which was held at the Col·legi d’Economistes de Catalunya.
The results also highlight the effect on employment, with 16,620 jobs accounted for in the city thanks to the Club’s activities, equivalent to 18% of those registered as unemployed in Barcelona.
The 16,620 jobs represent a 9% increase with respect to the 2013/14 season, which accounted for 15,265 jobs.
For every euro of direct expenditure in Barcelona as part of the Club’s activities, €2.30 of GDP were generated
