Up Barca! Barcelona create Youtube subscriber’s record
La Liga giants FC Barcelona have reached a new milestone by becoming the first football club to have 10 million subscribers on YouTube, according to a report on the club’s website.
Barcelona, one of the best clubs in the world despite ending their season in underwhelming fashion however gained 2.8million subscribers to end up on a total of 10 million.
Arch-rivals Real Madrid are a distant second with about half Barca’s numbers on 5.9m subscribers.
Premier League champions Liverpool come in 4th place with 4.9m; Manchester United, Juventus and Manchester City take the next three spots.
PSG, Chelsea and Arsenal round off the top ten while current Champions League holders Bayern are 11th.
Only the NBA, with 14.7 million subscribers, are the only sports channel that have more subscribers than the Spanish club on YouTube.
In honor of this landmark by FCB, YouTube will present them with a Diamond Creator Award, a metal plated trophy with a glass play button that is given to all channels that break the ten million barrier.
