A Toronto restaurant chain is to open a permanent cafe inside a popular Toronto venue to cater to fans of FC Barcelona.
The offer by CafeTO to provide food and drinks is potentially lucrative for the Catalan football club.
CafeTO will open a permanent location at the famous Olympia venue where FC Barcelona players and coaches give press conferences and take photographs.
It has a popular bar in a downtown Toronto mall, where supporters can also meet and greet players.
CafeTO also runs similar CafeTO concepts in Copenhagen, Madrid and Warsaw.
“After over a year of making Tokyo FC Barcelona a reality for the athletes and fans of the Club,” CafeTO said on Twitter, “we are ready to take the idea globally.”

CafeTO said on Twitter that the move to have a permanent cafe at Olympia will be announced at a news conference on Monday in Toronto.
CafeTO has said it will hire some of the same people who work at the cafes to work at the permanent club location.
