Lionel Messi, Neymar, Xavi and Andres Iniesta are set to become members of America’s favorite cartoon family, “The Simpsons.”
The FC Barcelona stars have been “Simpsonized,” in commemoration of their team’s new partnership with Twentieth Century FOX Consumer Products. The FOX-Barcelona partnership will help mark the 25th anniversary of the first episode of the “The Simpsons,” FOX Soccer announced Wednesday.
In the year-long partnership, Barcelona will create a line of branded merchandise, which features its stars in Simpsons form. Regular characters from the long-running television series also will appear in Barcelona jerseys.
The collaboration is similar to the one Twentieth Century FOX Consumer Products signed with Chelsea FC last month.
