The new Social Area, located in the old Palau Blaugrana 2, was officially inaugurated this Thursday at midday. President Sandro Rosell visited the new facilities accompanied by vice-president Jordi Cardoner i Casaus and Club directors Toni Freixa, Jordi Moix, Eduard Coll, Pilar Guinovart, Jordi Mestre and Josep Ramón Vidal-Abarca.

Prior to the visit there was a press conference with vice-president Jordi Cardoner, Board member Jordi Moix and the architect of the project Robert Blanch, in the Ricard Maxenchs Press Room. After the visit there was a closing ceremony in the Auditorium 1899, which can hold up to 700 people.

History at the service of the membership

The modern and functional premises of the new Social Area provide a full range of services for the membership, housing the OAB, the OAP and the OAE as well as the Office of the Members’ Ombudsman. It is a fully integrated office focused on one of the most important, most highly valued and, without a doubt, the most distinctive feature of FC Barcelona: the membership.

The new Social Area has been renovated with the history of the Club very much at the fore, maintaining the structure of the Palau Blaugrana 2, as well as a football practice wall, a symbol that planted the seed of the spirit of the Masia.

You can see the history of the building and the renovation process in this presentation.

Usual opening times for OAP

In spite of the change of location, the OAP continues to serve the supporters’ clubs as always, in person, by email or by phone at the usual times.
