This Monday, the supporters’ club movement will take part in an historic event. The day will begin with the institutional XXXV World Supporters Club Congress, with lots of surprises and emotional activities.
President Josep M. Bartomeu will be present at the event, alongside other members of the Board. Some of Barça’s new signings this season will also attend the events, to the delight of supporters’ club members.
Just like in recent years, Sharp will be giving away a 60-inch TV to the supporters clubs which this year are celebrating the 50th Anniversary
Tribute to Barcelona fans and Gala Lunch
During the event there will also be a very special tribute. Showing the importance that the Club gives to the FC Barcelona supporters, the Club will recognise the women who have stood out in defence of the Barça colours.
Immediately after the Congress, the delegates will move to the adjoining room to enjoy the Gala Lunch. If last year the theme was the centenary of the birth of Nicolau Casaus, this year it will be La Masia that will be the focus of attention at the lunch which will also be attended by President Josep Maria Bartomeu. During lunch, attendees will take part in the draw for the large screen TV, courtesy of Sharp.
Activities in the area of the World Congress
From early afternoon, the Auditorium 1899 will host the third edition of the Supporters Clubs Football Games. The video console football tournament for youngsters up to 18 will start at 3 p.m. and go on until 7 p.m.
In addition, at 6 p.m., in the main tent, the traditional presentation of gifts from the World Supporters Club Congress will start. Each of the Federations is called upon to bring their banners so that the representatives of the supporters clubs from each area will be able to collect their gifts.
On top of all this, the Gamper Festival
At the same time, in the Estrella Damm area, the Gamper Festival will have already begun, with concerts and all kinds of activities for children and adults who are going to the game. The festival will end with the presentation of Luis Enrique’s team, who will play in this season’s debut at the Camp Nou against Club Leon Guanajuato.
