Management: Majestic Group is going to be responsible for managing the hotel that Leo Messi has purchased in Ibiza.
It is not the first time that the footballer has placed his trust in the Catalan family chain, given that the firm already manages the establishment that the Barcelona striker acquired last year.

The hotel is going to change its name to MiM Ibiza Es Vivé.
THPT Comment: Footballers owning hotels eh? Well actually Leo Messi is not the first….Here in the UK Gary Neville & Ryan Giggs are becoming quite proficient hoteliers, in Manchester – where else? They opened the 133 room Hotel Football opposite Manchester United’s Old Trafford Stadium in 2015 and haven’t looked back, their third 200 room hotel due to open in 2020.
