Totana to host XXXII World Meeting


The PB de Totana will host the Trobada Mundial de Penyes for the 2008/09 season following a vote held on Sunday in the Sala París at the Camp Nou.

Before the game between FC Barcelona and Deportivo la Coruña, a vote was held to decide between the three bids for the XXXII World Meeting of Barça Supporters Clubs, with the Murcia club coming out the winner.

Representatives from every zone on the Barça supporters club map were consulted before the 34 delegates of the Advisory Council proceeded with the vote held in the stadium’s Sala París. The final result was 17 votes for the PB de Totana, 13 for the PB de Premià de Mar and 4 votes for the PB Josep Lluís Núñez in Tarazona de la Mancha.

Totana follows on from Aguilas

This is the second time that the World Meeting has been held in Murcia, for in 1991 it was organised by the Penya d’Aguilas.

In the heart of the Region of Murcia, at the foot of the Sierra Espuña, Totana is a town that has had a Barça supporters club for 10 years now and which has done so much to promote the club in the region. Its president is called Juan Carrión, who is the Advisory Council delegate for Murcia. Carrión has implied the town in a host of different tourism promotion activities and charity projects.

The club has ample experience of hosting local meetings. It has held three in Totana in the last decade, in 1999, 2000 and 2006, and always with remarkable success.

The PB Totana is proposing a highly participative event with fans coming from all around the world to enjoy a variety of cultural events. The Murcian town has all the right infrastructures to host an event of this nature, such as its huge Congress Auditorium and different exhibition halls, as well as a multi-sports pavilion.

The organisation of the World Meeting signifies the culmination and compensation for a decade of efforts made by the club to promote FC Barcelona all around Murcia.
