Look who Microsoft is throwing money at [Spanish]! Yup, according to Catalunya Informació, by way of Sport, it looks like Microsoft is going to sponsor, in some capacity, the reigning European and Spanish football champions, FC Barcelona. It’s said to be worth some €2 million.

Does this mean Barça will soon be running around with MICROSOFT on its chest? Doubtful; we all know the team is in a multi-year agreement with Unicef whereby it (Barça) gives money to the United Nations organization.

Barça, as you’re probably already aware, is currently in Seattle for game two of its North American tour. The team plays the Seattle Sounders—also, coincidentally, sponsored by Microsoft—tomorrow night, viewable on ESPN2 at 10:30pm ET.

Apparently Laporta and Co. visited the Microsoft headquarters earlier today.

What do you think? Will MS sponsor FCB to gain more popularity.. i didn't see Google and Apple participate in this industry before.. If this come into reality, will Google and Apple going to the same path?

I've been a Barca fan for life and let me tell you they pay for their sponsor (UNICEF)

I think MS would be lucky if Barca put them somewhere on their jersey!
