Josep Sunyol and Lluís Companys (31 May 1936)

Suñol travelled to parliament from Valencia where he had gone on behalf of Joan Casanovas, the president of the Parliament of Catalonia. The visit was carried out in a political capacity and was not related to signing football players.

On 6 August 1936, Josep Suñol was shot dead by Francoist forces.

At one of the most difficult times ever experienced by Catalonia and Spain, the Club was without a president and in the midst of a revolution.
