On April 3 the FC Barcelona will hold an Extraordinary Assembly to address the proposed agreement with Spotify as a new main Club sponsor, with delegate members voting on its ratification. The Delegates' Assembly will take place virtually for the first time in the Club's history and members can follow it live via streaming on the Club official website - www.fcbarcelona.com - as well as YouTube, starting at 10am CEST.
The 4,478 delegate members members are convened at 10.00am for the first call and 10.30am for the second call (both CEST). The FC Barcelona General Assembly, the Club's highest governing body, comprises of a random selection of 2.5% of the members, the Club's Senators, the current members of the Board of Directors, the members of the statutes commission, ex-presidents of the Club, and the presidents of the regional supporters' club federations who have been members for at least five years.
The Assembly at the Auditori 1899
Despite the fact that the Assembly will take place 100% virtually, the venue for the event will be the Auditori 1899 that will host the Assembly Table formed by a limited representation in person - the Board of Directors, the Members' Ombudsman, the members of the Statutory Commissions, that form part of the team of delegate members. All these people present at the Auditori and with the right to vote will have to do so virtually using terminals installed at the venue.
The host the Assembly Table, the 1899 Auditori will be transformed into a large TV studio where the corresponding interventions to the points of order of the day will be made, which can be followed via streaming. The first point of the Extraordinary Assembly will be the president's report given by Joan Laporta, then the Spotify sponsorship proposal which will be presented by the vice president of the Marketing Area, Juli Guiu. Following that will come the responses to those questions previously set by the delegates on the Spotify agreement which will be then voted on for its ratification. Finally, the order of the day will close with a round of interventions from the delegates present in the Assembly's virtual space.
- President’s Report
- Ratification of the agreement with Spotify
- Members’ proposals in accordance with the provisions of Article 20.11 of the By-laws
