The SoccerBible returned from an exclusive and exciting trip to Barcelona with a special gift! Our journey had taken us to the Camp Nou stadium, to join in the launch of Nike's 2010 World Cup campaign.
The gift was a signed FC Barcelona shirt, from Pep Guardiola following his Barcelona side's historic treble winning season. Barcelona won the Primera Division, Copa del Rey and Champions League, and the way they play football is said to embody the spirit of the game, the reason why Nike chose the Camp Nou feeling that: "Behind the stadium walls the passion of the game is ignited"
Our shirt was handed out in a presentation pack featuring the slogan 'More than just a shirt', and a unique passage of text capturing the Barcelona philosophy, also signed by Pep Guardiola.
Following the stunning invitation we received our expectations were high, and the event itself was a spectacular launch of Nike's World Cup 2010 campaign. On show was a host of new football boots, shirts, kits and accessories unveiled to a selected VIP audience.
The Camp Nou provided the perfect venue, and our SoccerBible reporters were able to get a host of pictures from the exciting event. With some of the world's best players from past and present were on hand to showcase the future innovations for the greatest event in football.
Stay tuned to the SoccerBible for more exclusive details and pictures, as we join Nike on their 2010 World Cup South Africa campaign...
