Cristiano Ronaldo might have the supermodels, but Barcelona players have free Audis for the year.
Futbol players seem to get all the perks, as seen here in this video. In the build-up to the game of the year so far against Real Madrid, Audi has made their way out to FC Barcelona's training facility Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper to deliver to the player's daily drivers that they can use for the duration of the season. The official presentation ceremony included speeches by Audi execs and the delivery to each player a customized car with the player's name on it. Definitely an awesome perk of the job.
Lionel Messi, the current player of the year, chose the Audi Q7. Midfielders Cesc Fabregas and Andres Iniesta along with striker David Villa also chose the Q7.
Audi and FC Barcelona have been working together since 2006, with Audi giving the players daily drivers and the German automaker getting plenty of marketing value in the stadium, on the team's official sweaters and will appear at all home games, joint initiatives and events. Captain Carlos Puyol, Xavi, Iniesta and Messi are all out to check out the new rides. Win or lose this Saturday, Barca players will still be in style.
