Barcelona: More than a club (they're a mausoleum too!)

David Ramos

Now you can pay lots of money to be laid to rest under the Camp Nou. And you thought clubs didn't care!

As far as capitalism goes, tapping into the 'deceased' market is a pretty good move. After all, there are a lot more dead people than living ones, and if you can find a way to make money off them they're in pretty good shape. And Barcelona have apparently found a way to do just that: Open up a paid-for mausoleum underneath the Camp Nou.

For the low price of €3,000, you can guarantee a fifty-year spot for your ashes upon your departure from this mortal coil. 99 years? That'll be €6,000. But that's a bargain compared to ensuring that your spirit permeates the pitch upon which your heroes play, yes? There will be places for 500 Barcelona die-hards (or €1,500,000, if you're feeling cynical), and there are plans to expand the project so that there will be room for up to 30,000 urns (or €90,000,000) in future.

Support the club in life; support the club in death. It's the Barcelona way.
