Why do Barcelona players wear their names in Chinese against Alavés?

The Catalan club had already anticipated it in the previous match, announcing the reasons.

“The players of the Barça first team will jump onto the pitch wearing the Barça home kit with their names stamped in Chinese during the preview of the match against Alavés, on the occasion of the Chinese New Year celebration”, was the statement released this Friday by the Catalan club, thus explaining why Messi and company drew attention in the preview of the game corresponding to day 23 of LaLiga.

In the same text, it is added: “For the eighth consecutive year, the Club will be with its fans from the Asian country on this important date on its calendar, also known as the Spring Festival. Likewise, the Gol Norte stands will be covered with a canvas with Happy New Year written in Chinese and English, along with the motto All roads lead Home, which evokes the message of the congratulatory video that the first team players sent to Chinese fans last Wednesday. “

On the other hand, the canvas has also combined illustrations of emblematic Chinese monuments and buildings such as the Great Wall or the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai, with other well-known scenes in Barcelona such as the Camp Nou or the Sagrada Familia, among others. .
