Térmens, new supporters clubs ombudsman
The new supporters clubs ombudsman is looking forward to his new responsibilities in support of the supporters club movement.
On Monday, October 25, the Board accepted Ramon Térmens as the supporters clubs ombudsman. This
newly created figure is yet another display of the new administration’s desire to strengthen
its bonds with the supporters clubs.
In an interview with www.fcbarcelona.cat, the new ombudsman said that “personally this
means being able to work on one of the most important issues for maintaining Barça’s
independence and sustainability in the future. This project gives value to the supporters club
movement as one that reflects the Barça passion, both in its geographic extension and in the way it
promotes the Barça name.”
The ombudsman knows he has an important job to do, which entails
“responsibility for overseeing a good understanding between supporters clubs, as ensuring
honest and efficient compliance with the agreements they establish with Barça. These agreements are
always in coordination with the Supporters Clubs Council, the former Advisory Committee, and the
parties implied”, explained Térmens.
Impulse for the future
Térmens feels this will generate a new impetus for the movement as a whole. “I think
it’s fantastic. I understand that it means reinforcement of the supporters club movement in
all of its dimensions and responds to the board’s requirements. It means welcoming all Barça
fans.” He ended by saying he intends to oversee the supporters club movement benefit from the
new Century XXI project.
