President Bartomeu and vice-president Vilarrubí with the international MPs / MARTA BECERRA

The President Suñol Box at the Camp Nou had some very special guests today in the form of the regional, state, European and Latin American MPs that are in Barcelona to monitor Sunday’s elections to the Catalan Parliament.

Barça president Josep Maria Bartomeu, joined by Head of International and Institutional Relations, Carles Vilarrubí, held a meeting with the vice-president observers, who are here to observe the voting process in person and then report back on it to their respective countries.

FC Barcelona has formed part of the Council for Public Diplomacy in Catalonia (DIPLOCAT), the body that invited the guests to the stadium, since December 2013 and as a social and sporting entity and is represented by the vice president Carles Vilarrubí.

DIPLOCAT is an institution that was created in November 2012 as a public-private organisation in order to inform the outside world about Catalonia and at same time raise its profile internationally.
