Saturday’s hot weather added to the party atmosphere at the Camp Nou, where the impressive win over Malaga was the ideal send-off for Abidal, and also ensured FCB finished with 100 points for the very first time.
But one supporters club had an added reason to celebrate. The Penya Barcelonista de Pòrtol, from the Balearic Islands, unveiled its crest over gate 5 to the Camp Nou at a ceremony attended by Xavier Ilincheta, director of the Supporters Clubs Commission, and the president of the club, Miquel Bosch.
The supporters club offices were the venue for the presentation of the VI Trobada de Penyes Barcelonistes de Ponent Nord, organised by the Penya Blau-Gran Ponts i Comarca, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Pau Vilanova, director in chief of the Social Commission welcome the delegate for the zone Pere Mentruit and the president of the host club Domènech Tugues.
