One of golf’s all time greats, Severiano Ballesteros, died as a result of cerebral cancer, which he had been fighting for the last two and a half years. Seve won three Masters, three British Opens and was part of the wining team on the Ryder Cup four times. He was also awarded the PrÝncepe d’Ast˙ries prize.

Barša fan

Severiano Ballesteros was also a big Barša fan in 1999 he took part in a curious show as part of the “No to Drugs” game, hitting a golf ball from one goal to the other twice and beating ex-keeper Andoni Zubizarreta on both occasions.


Club President Sandro Rosell declared: “this is news which saddens us all. We’ve lost a human being and one of the great figures of sport. We Barša fans feel it even more keenly because Severiano Ballesteros was an illustrious fan and an ambassador for our Club all over the world”.

The Club will observe a minute’s silence in memory of Severiano Ballesteros in all the games its various teams are taking part in this weekend.
