The ambitious project known as Barca World will see the opening of a Barcelona football academy, a museum, megastore and a themed food and beverage operation.
"We hope to be able to bring FC Barcelona's methodology to China and Hainan," said the club's Asia-Pacific managing director, Xavier Asensi.
The museum will open this summer and be a facility that is way beyond what visitors would expect of a regular museum, he said. "It will be an experience center where football fans can enjoy the FC Barcelona atmosphere."
The 36-year-old Ronaldinho, a World Cup winner and twice Fifa's player of the year, now serves as an ambassador for Barcelona.
