As part of the agreement, FC Barcelona will enable a secure digital environment for its Spotify Camp Nou facilities leveraging Fortinet’s industry-leading Security Fabric platform, which will serve as a global reference for technological innovation in the world of sport and entertainment.

FC Barcelona and Fortinet have signed a sponsorship agreement through which Fortinet becomes Espai Barça’s new Official Cybersecurity Partner for the next three seasons, until 30 June 2028. The alliance between the Club and Fortinet is part of the sponsorship program associated with the future Spotify Camp Nou and has been made possible thanks to their shared goals of integrating the most innovative technological systems into the future Stadium. The alliance reaffirms the Club’s commitment to partnering with leading companies and integrating the most innovative technology into the new stadium.

This partnership represents a new opportunity for the sponsorship programme, created specifically for one of the most important projects in the Club’s history. It will open up new opportunities, both for companies that sell directly to consumers (B2C) and, as is the case for Fortinet, for companies focused on the business sector (B2B), taking advantage of the global visibility and prestige of FC Barcelona and the importance of what will be one of the world’s leading stadia.

“Espai Barça must be the catalyst for the Club’s digital transformation, and cybersecurity is a fundamental pillar. Our alliance with Fortinet ensures that our facilities will have the most advanced protection and a secure digital environment for all those who visit the Stadium. This collaboration highlights our commitment to innovation and technology and the Club’s commitment to offer the best experience,”  shared Juli Guiu, VP – Marketing Area, FC Barcelona.

John Maddison, Chief Marketing Officer, Fortinet added, “Building on Fortinet’s history of cybersecurity innovation spanning more than 20 years, we’re proud to support FC Barcelona’s ambitious vision to create an international innovation hub powered by industry-leading, cutting-edge technologies. Our shared goal of developing Spotify Camp Nou into one of the world’s leading stadiums is made possible by leveraging the Fortinet Security Fabric platform to secure its digital environment.”

As part of the agreement, FC Barcelona will implement Fortinet’s Security Fabric platform, including FortiGate next-generation firewalls, to secure stadium Wi-Fi, OT infrastructure, and the data center. Fortinet’s Zero Trust Network Access and endpoint security will protect users and devices accessing applications from any location. Additionally, centralized management with AI-powered security analytics will offer comprehensive network visibility. These technologies will integrate seamlessly with FC Barcelona’s existing IT investments, enhancing security and efficiency across Spotify Camp Nou.
