East Bengal previously had a partnership with Leicester City of the Premier League. However, that was concerned solely with building the English club’s profile among the huge South Asian diaspora of the city.

Quess East Bengal may enter into a tie-up with Spanish giants Barcelona, chairman of the I-League runners-up Ajit Isaac has said in a statement on their official Facebook page.

“The meeting facilitated by Rakuten, the global innovation partner and sponsor of FC Barcelona, was held at Quess House in Bengaluru. Rakuten is incidentally advising FCB on expanding its footprint worldwide,” it added with a photo of the officials.

The deal if finalised would give a big boost to the growth of Indian football at grassroots level.
