The secretary and spokesman for the Board of Directors, Antoni Freixa, has spoken to the
press this Tuesday to explain the agreements reached at a meeting the day before. Freixa
described plans to improve the club facilities and the services it offers to its members.

New headquarters

The new Palau Blaugrana 2, the former Picadero, will soon be the site for a new headquarters
that will house the Barcelona Supporter Services Office (OAB), The Supporters Club Services
Office (OAP) and the new Specialised Services Office (OAE). This will also be the venue for the
new Sala París, which will be a multi-purpose auditorium. The present building used for the
OAB and Sala París will instead be used to expand the FCBotiga Megastore.

Qatar to meet with contractual obligations derived from the sponsorship deal with the Qatar
Foundation. Freixa explained that president Sandro Rosell will be joined on his journey by
vice president Javier Faus, director general Antoni Rossich, the sports director of professional
football Andoni Zubizarreta and coaches Josep Guardiola and Tito Vilanova.
