FC Barcelona congraulate 'Mundo Deportivo' and 'Sport'
The President Josep Maria Bartomeu, in the name of FC Barcelona, congratulates newspapers 'Mundo Deportivo' and 'Sport' for reaching important landmarks
In recent weeks FC Barcelona has had the fortune to congratulate not one but two national sports newspapers for reaching important landmarks in their respective histories. At the end of October ‘Mundo Deportivo’, the oldest sports newspaper in the country, published its 30,000th edition since the publication’s inception way back in 1906. The Club President Josep Maria Bartomeu added his voice to those from home and from abroad recognising the paper’s achievement in a special supplement that was published to mark the occasion: “Many congratulations to ‘Mundo Deportivo’ and their readers for edition number 30,000. Well done because it is no easy feat to reach 30,000, it’s an historic achievement.”
35 years of Sport
At the beginning of November there were also congratulations for the newspaper ‘Sport’, who celebrated their 35th anniversary. President Josep Maria Bartomeu formed part of a large party of representatives from the club who attended an event at the Old Estrella Damm Factory in Barcelona to celebrate the landmark in the publication’s history. The president had kind words for the paper which ‘for 35 years has covered FC Barcelona, bringing all the latest news at the Club to the great family that is our fans and our members.’
