Barcelona will reduce player and staff wages in a bid to “minimise the economic impact” caused by coronavirus.

Spanish football was suspended for an indefinite period earlier this month, with a resumption only taking place once the government and health bodies are satisfied there is no longer a risk to public health.

With no sport possible and the subsequent effect on income streams, Barcelona announced on Thursday night they would be implementing measures in an attempt to reduce the economic impact of the crisis.

Among the measures decided by the club’s board was “adapting the contractual obligations of the club staff to the new and temporary circumstances that we are experiencing”.

Barca say that, as the working day has been reduced by the coronavirus, then salaries will be proportionally reduced.
