A historic congress

Míriam Nadal

The 32nd Supporters Clubs Congress started today as part of the World Meeting. The first day was an intense session for both the Club and its Supporters Clubs.

Vice president Jordi Cardoner i Casaus opened the Congress on Sunday morning, with more than 750 supporters clubs in attendance, along with representatives of the Club and members of the Commission.

Cardoner called this 32nd Congress historic because it was the first time both the club and its supporters had sat down to lay the foundations for the Penyes Segle XXI project. “For the first time, binding documents are being articulated and created by the Club in association with its Supporters Clubs. More than an institutional day, this is a day for historic work regarding the model for the supporters movement” said the vice president of the social area.

Cardoner said the main aim of the whole process is to further promote the Barça brand, saying that “we need to position the movement where it belongs ".

The thematic blocks that the members of the supporters movement will be presenting are to do with the census, tickets for away games, identity and activities.

Before these proposals, the clubs were told in detail about the organisational structure and model of the social area and the supporters clubs department by executive Pere Jansà and were also informed of the conclusions of the Adoria auditors form into the supporters movement.

Apart from Cardoner, other dignitaries that are attending the Congress include chief director of the Social Commission, Pau Vilanova, the director for international supporters clubs, Josep Maria Barnils, the secretary of the Congress, Jordi Calsamiglia, and the spokesman for the Advistory Council, Antoni Guil.

Institutional Congress on Monday

On Monday, the Congress will take a more institutional focus, and will be attended by the Barça president, Sandro Rosell. The Congress will be broadcast live from 10.00 to 14.00 on Barça TV.
