Fresh from their Champions League win over Manchester City, FC Barcelona has become the latest football team to be given a Simpsons-makeover courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products.
The first line of players to be ‘Simpsonized’ are Xavi Hernández, Andres Iniesta, Lionel Messi and Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior.
Fox and FC Barcelona will now co-create a line of branded merchandise available to consumers later this year.
Additional FC Barcelona players to be ‘Simpsonized’ will be revealed soon.
Barcelona joins FC Chelsea, FC Zenit Saint Petersburg, Sport Club Corinthians, FC Porto, Juventus and Boca Juniors in partnering with Fox for a Simpsons collaboration, and additional national and international soccer teams signing on for this licensing partnership will be announced in the coming months.
