Qatar deal

Referring to the Qatar Foundation contract, Freixa explained: "there was an agreement made at the 2003 Assembly which authorises the inclusion of publicity on the shirts, so this consultation is not actually required by the statutes, but for us it is simply a question of respect and consideration for the members' wishes". At the same time, he pointed out that "the board believe this is the best sponsorship deal possible and that the members will agree with us on this".

No smoking rules

The decision to forbid smoking at the Camp Nou will also be discussed and Toni Freixa explained: "the board recommended a ban on smoking and we announced that it would be put to the Assembly to include it in the Club regulations, as has been done in other countries".

New "grada d'animació" plans
