Dorna, the company that owns the MotoGP and Superbike world championships, would be interested in a possible purchase of the Barcelona Club Football.It would be through the investment funds Bridgepoint and CVC Partners to which it belongs, and with Carmelo Ezpeleta as a key figure in the entire operation.
The Barcelona Football Club is going through a very delicate economic moment, so much that it could be forced to become a sports corporation (SAD) to rescue him from bankruptcy.It is in that case that MotoGP organizers, linked to the club, could become part of the direction.
Dorna's own funds would be interested in buying Barça
In Spain there are only four football teams that are not SAD.This is the Football Club Barcelona, Real Madrid, the Athletic Club of Bilbao and the Osasuna Athletic Club.The rest became companies, instead of partner clubs, to alleviate the economic problems they were going through.Now I could touch Barcelona.
According to the journalist Josep Brau, specialized in Blaugrana information, Barça is serious at risk of declaring the suspension of payments and becoming SAD already in 2022, something that fights to avoid the current president, Joan Laporta, newly elected and hasInherited a dramatic situation of the directives of Sandro Rosell and Josep María Bartomeu.
The best placed to keep Barça would be the capital funds Bridgepoint and CVC Partners, Dorna's owners.Ezpeleta, culé recognized, would be a key figure throughout this operation, and possibly the visible face of managing Barcelona if this operation is finally specified.It is not something that is done, much less.
In Dorna it is carrying the entire process with a lot.Javier Tebas, president of the League and friend of Ezpeleta, would also be interested, and the president of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, aware of everything.
Dorna's relationship with football comes from afar, since the beginnings of the company were managing advertising in football in the late 80s.And with Barça there has also been a lot of link lately.Without going any further, Manel Arroyo, Dorna's commercial manager, was Marketing Director of the Catalan Club between 2010 and 2018.
We will see if this operation is completed, still distant, and how it would affect the future of MotoGP and Superbikes, since there could be a restructuring in the management of motorcycle world world.At the moment, everything is an embryo that is brewing, but with the threat of investors throughout the globe that could truncate it.
