The Colombian launch is being supported by Colombian publishing House Grupo Editorial Semana.

According to Spain's Unidad Editorial, the publisher of Marca, it has chosen Colombia as the first country to expand in Latin America  because:

The editorial staff is based in Bogota with 38 journalists.
