Team to wear world champions shirt


From Sunday’s game against Valencia until the end of the season, FC Barcelona will be wearing a special shirt in commemoration of being the best team in the world.

It specially commemorates the Clubs World Cup title won in December in Abu Dhabi. Just above the UNICEF name, there will be a logo of the World Cup and the words “World Champions 2009”. The club is examining the potential for marketing the shirt.

Tax settlement

Oliver also said that last Friday the club paid the 36.7 million euros it owed to the state in the form of tax, and has therefore settled all such debts for the 1996-99 period.

The testimonial also wants to honour the memory of Urruti”, said Oliver. The tribute will be held on March 24 on the occasion of the League game against Osasuna at the Camp Nou.

Investments in Sant Joan Despí and grass

The Delegate Commission has also accepted two investments. The first will cost 160,000 euros and consists of replacing the turf on Pitch 7 at the Ciutat Esportiva. The other is a payment of 250,000 euros for more lighting machines to support the growth of the grass in the stadium.

Club’s second oldest shirt
Joan Oliver also announced that the Museum has acquired the second oldest club shirt. It dates back to 1928 and was worn by former player Josep Sastre. Sastre was a striker at Barça from 1924 to 1933. He scored 116 goals and this shirt was worn the year that FC Barcelona won the inaugural Spanish League title in 1928-1929.
