According to Teresa Basilio, delegate for culture of the FC Barcelona Board of Directors: "Renewal of this agreement is a great opportunity to continue to spread Catalan culture and Barça throughout the world, which is very exciting. We are now beginning a new stage, which will be launched in Milan in November, where we will announce the projects envisaged by the Barça Innovation Hub."
According to the director of the IRL, Iolanda Batallé: "For the Institut Ramon Llull, adding up with Barça, with Barça and sports being considered as culture, is very important. The Institut Ramon Llull boasts more than 150 universities throughout the world with which it collaborates; thus, being able to offer activities together with FC Barcelona is great and a unique opportunity."
