The Supporters Club Convention was held as part of the Trobada Mundial held in Donostia and the Fundació, the Campus de les Penyes and their new mascot were the principal items on the agenda.

Club President Sandro Rosell, as well as the vice president for the Social Area, Jordi Cardoner and board member Dídac Lee were all present, as were members of the Social Commission, the Supporters Clubs Commission and the Council of Supporters Clubs.

Of the 1.673 votes cast, 868 went for the “Avi del Barça” surrounded by his grandchildren. Gemma Larrègola, the designer of the Toons, announced the result and explained: “so many of you have voted and we are very happy with that. This mascot represents the family and the spirit we are enjoying in this Trobada”.

Sr Maldonado,who is an active Supporters Club member himself, claimed: “the tandem formed by the Fundació and the Supporters Clubs form a part of a great future for Barça. I appeal to the Supporters Clubs to support our solidarity work”.
