Joan Laporta was one of the speakers at the ‘League of Experience’ conference held in Utrecht (Holland). The president has spoken about how the Barça model works.

The venue for the event was the De Galgenwaard Stadium in Utrecht.

Explanation of the Barça model

Laporta spoke about Barça to this forum of professionals from among the elite of the world of sport and management. He described the club’s approach to football and its style of play, and also the actions of the FC Barcelona Foundation.


Laporta then took part in a debate with other congress guests, including Jan Smilde, General Manager of Red Bull Nederland; Harrie Linders, director of De Loto; Jean Paul Decossaux, sale manager for the Ducth Federation and Pieter van den Hoogenband, three times Olympic swimming champion.

The decision to wear ‘Unicef’ on the club shirt and Barça’s extraordinary success under Josep Guardiola were two of the areas that Laporta explored in his speech at this event, which was held to exchange knowledge and experiences between people involved in top level sports management.
