This weekend, three supporters clubs unveiled their plaques on the stadium façade. The events started on Friday with the unveiling of that of the Penya Blaugrana de Hockey, in commemoration of the 90th anniversary of the field hockey section.
A large delegation made their way to the stadium for the event. Santiago Deó, president of the Spanish Hockey Federation, Narcís Carriol, president of the Catalan Hockey Federation, Jordi Alcover, vice president of the European Hockey Federation and the president of the International Hockey Federation, Leandro Negre, were all there to witness FC Barcelona recognises this very unique supporters club.
The Club was represented by Pau Vilanova, director in chief of the Social Commission and two directors from the Sports Commission, Joan Aymerich and Francesc Carol, as well as the delegate for the section, Jordi Delàs. The director of the Supporters Clubs Commission, Daniel Casanovas, also joined the party.
Sunday was day for all Barça supporters to celebrate, but it was a doubly special day for the French supporters from FC Blaugrana Plus Que Des Supporters, who has travelled down from Lyon. Nicolas Fayet, president of the club, and director of the Supporters Clubs Commission Xavier Ilincheta did the honours before about ten supporters.
Then it was the turn of the Penya Blaugrana Can Cartró i Subirats to unveil their plaque. Some 30 members of their association had made the trip to the stadium, led by their president Raimon Querol. Ilincheta and Querol pulled the strings, watched by the delegate to the Advisory Council in Anoia, Alt Penedès and Garraf, Jordi Abellán.
Despite the rain, both clubs were able to watch Barça beating Valladolid, and to join in with the 2012-13 league title celebrations.
