25 years in Sant AdriÓ
On October 12th, the Pe˝a de Sant AdriÓ de Bes˛s celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary in the restaurant El Mediterrani in Sant Fost de Campsentelles.
Two hundred supporters club members attended this great Barša party, at which all the first
team’s titles were exhibited: World Club Cup. Spanish League and Spanish Super Cup.
The club was represented by the vice-president of the ┴rea Social, Jordi Cardoner, who was
accompanied by Pau Vilanova, director of the Comisiˇn Social, and the ex-player and currently
director of the ┴rea Internacional of the FCBEscola, Julio Alberto Moreno, as well as Liberato
Lartuna, delegate to the Consejo Consultivo de Pe˝as for BarcelonŔs Nord. On behalf of the
Ayuntamiento de Sant AdriÓ, the councillor in charge of sports, Juan Carlos Ramos, also attended.
Before the meal, very speeches were made. Supporters Club vice-president Joan Gener, welcomed
the guests to the event and was followed by the president, Enric Atencia, who thanked the FC
Barcelona representatives for their presence, whilst Juan Carlos Ramos explained that the Mayor had
been unable to attend, but stressed the importance of the club in promoting sport within the town.
Words of thanks
Jordi Cardoner began his speech by praising all the Pilars present (the 12th
October is Pilar’s saints day) and stressed the importance of women in the life of the Club.
Cardoner explained that although only 23% of club members were women, it was clear from the event
that their presence was in fact much greater.
The club then paid homage to its founder and first president Salvador Aragall. FC Barcelona
saluted the great job he had done at the start of the club’s history and the rest of the
club’s founders, who started with the tradition of hiring coaches to take the club fans to
the Nou Camp, also received the thanks of those present.
Once the speeches were done, it was time for eating and dancing, which continued until late
into the evening.
