Highly successful XVII Meeting of Galician FCB Supporters’ Clubs

On Sunday 25 May the XVII Meeting of Galician FCB Supporters’ Clubs was held at Marín in Galicia, and proved to be a great success.

The twenty FCB supporters’ clubs from all over Galicia that gathered in Marín were joined by FC Barcelona director Jacint Borràs, Social Commission director Josep Ignasi Macià and handball star Andrei Xepkin. Also present were Francisco Veiga, Mayor of Marín; Francisco de Castro, the Supporters’ Club Advisory Committee representative; and Salvador Cerviño, president of the Marín SC.

Jacint Borràs thanked the Town Council for the support it had given to the Marín SC in organising the Meeting.

Lunch and speeches

To warm applause Jacint Borràs reminded attendees that “win or lose we are still Barça fans”. He also spoke about the need for “solidarity and commitment”.

Jacint Borràs then thanked the organising Marín SC for all their efforts and expressed his hope that the event would be a springboard for the Tui and Ares Supporters’ Clubs which are to organise the Meetings in 2009 and 2010 respectively.
