The Visa Platinum credit and debit cards featuring the official portraits and jersey numbers of the playing greats, offer cardholders one chance to win the trip with every AED 1,000 of spend.  All FC Barcelona cards are linked with “Barca Rewards”, which will allow customers to earn points to redeem for Barça merchandise, along with over 900 airlines, 200,000 hotels and thousands of electronic items. “Barca Rewards” will be part of the award winning “UAB Rewards”, the Best Customer Loyalty program in the Middle East.

Commenting on the debut of the Barca-themed cards, Tony B Graham, Executive Vice President - Retail Banking said: “We are thrilled to offer the region’s first FC Barcelona cards to our customers and to fans of the club here in the UAE.  It’s a fantastic way to show their support for the world’s greatest football club. Even better, not only Barca cardholders will earn chances with each transaction to win an all-expense paid trip to see the club play live in Spain at Camp Nou, they will also earn “Barca Reward” points, which can be also redeemed for over hundreds of Official FC Barcelona merchandise – designed especially for the true Barca fan.  This is the next step in our three-year partnership with FC Barcelona which we are very proud to be a part of.”
