FC Barcelona has a faithful fan from the world of beauty, and she is no other than Megan Young, winner of the title of Miss World 2013. The young Philippine girl, present at the closing ceremony of the CineEurope convention, where FC Barcelona was awarded the Variety Humanitarian Award 2013 for its humanitarian efforts in the education of children, was proudly photographed with a Barca shirt that she received from President Josep Maria Bartomeu.

Megan Young, on Barca TV, expressed her gratitude for "this very special gift" as she said she was a faithful follower of the team. "Since the last World Cup, I have made many Barça friends who make me watch games and explain things about football. It's great to learn about this fantastic team who we all now support".

The current Miss World was very excited by the gift because "I had always planned to get a Barça shirt". Now she’ll be able to support Luis Enrique’s team, wearing the shirt. "My friends and all Barcelona fans in the Philippines will envy me", she said.

The Philippine beauty won the crown in Bali, in a ceremony in which 127 countries participated. Thus, Young won the award for her country for the first time in its history. Now, with her Barça shirt in her suitcase, it only remains for her to go to the Camp Nou for the first time. She still hasn’t done it yet but she’s clear that "when I return to Barcelona and Barça play at home, I will come with my friends to watch a game".
