Barcelona membership jumps over 163,000

Barcelona's summer buying spree has excited fans - and swelled the club's membership.

Barca's numbers are up 4 per cent on this time last year, with over 163,000 now having signed up after the club's capture of Seydou Keita, Alex Hleb, Daniel Alves and Gerard Pique.

It's also been revealed that over 17 per cent of new members are now coming from abroad.
