Barcelona has launched a line of protective masks for its fans during the coronavirus pandemic.

The club says the masks are available in three different models, with exclusive designs using Barcelona's colours. They can be found online or in physical stores, as they gradually reopened to the public, beginning yesterday.

The masks are made in Catalonia using 100 per cent ecological cotton. Barcelona says they comply with all "health requirements and regulations".

The masks are reusable and guaranteed to up to 40 washes.

Spain was one of the hardest-hit countries by the coronavirus pandemic, with nearly 30,000 deaths. Masks are now obligatory for the entire population in most situations.

Barcelona and most Spanish clubs sustained heavy financial losses and reduced the salaries of its players during the pandemic.
