Aitana to show off Ballon d'Or at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys
Before the men's first team fixture against Alavés on Sunday, the blaugrana women's player will show off the award which places her as the best player in the world
Last week Barça Women star Aitana Bonmatí had the chance to show off her Ballon d'Or award at the Estadi Johan Cruyff ahead of the game against Sevilla. This Sunday the newly crowned best player in the world will get the chance to show off her award again, this time ahead of the men's first team fixture against Alavés.
Prior the 4.15pm CET kick off at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys, the Catalan midfielder will present her Ballon d'Or to the crowd just a week for the women's side face Real Madrid in the league in their first game at the stadium.
Deserved Ballon d’Or award for Aitana Bonmatí
Little more than a week ago, Aitana Bonmatí was named as the Ballon d'Or for 2023. After picking up the award the Barça midfielder returned home via Switzerland where she was on duty with the national side. One back on Catalan soil, Aitana was greeted in her home town of Sant Pere de Ribes with a freshly created mural in the town commissioned by FC Barcelona to celebrate her achievement and by fans and neighbours. Later in the week the Ballon d'Or winner appeared at the Barça Store in the centre of Barcelona and then also presented her award to the fans ahead of Barça Women's game against Sevilla last Sunday.
As well as the presentation of the award against Alavés on Sunday, there will be another chance to present the prize at the Barça Immersive Tour.
As well as recognising Aitana's achievement, there will a moment to celebrate the naming of the FC Barcelona women's football team as the best in 2023 at the Ballon d'Or gala last month in Paris. The Club has prepared a tribute to the side who did the treble in the 2022/23 campaign, the highlight being their second Champions League title, which will come at their first Champions League fixture of the season against Benfica on Tuesday 14 November at the Estadi Johan Cruyff.
