Pope Francis has an offer from Barça to study. According to the journalist Jordi Borda (Catalunya Radio), the president of the club, Josep Maria Bartomeu, offered him to sponsor Barça's professional sections (basket, futsal, handball, and hockey) with Scholas Ocurrentes, an educational entity launched by Pope Francis.

According to this information, FC Barcelona believe Vatican might be interessted in accepting the offer.

Let's remember that JM Bartomeu travelled this Thursday to Rome to close a collaboration agreement withi Scholas Ocurrentes. The president was welcomed by Pope Francis, who received football and basketball Barça jerseys, this last one, like the sponsor would be.

Scholas Ocurrentes is an entity where "technology, arts and sports are used to encourage social integration and the culture of encounter." They want to create a worldwide network of schools to share knowledge and educational projects. Currently 400.000 schools have already been opened.
