Raimon Carrasco i Azemar (1977-1978)

He was the Club’s interim president from December 18, 1977 to July 1, 1978, the day Josep Lluís Núñez ascended to the presidency

The son of the Christian Democrat Manuel Carrasco i Formiguera, who was executed by a Francoist firing squad during the Spanish Civil War, Raimon Carrasco (Barcelona, 1924) was a member of the board during the presidency of Agustí Montal i Costa (from December 18, 1969 to December 18, 1977), first as secretary and then as vice president.

He became interim president on December 18, 1977, and remained in the post until July 1, 1978, the day that Josep Lluís Núñez effectively stepped into the president’s role following the elections of May 6. During Raimon Carrasco’s temporary presidency, a transitional period that he was able to deal with efficiently and with strict neutrality, the Club won its eighteenth Copa de Rey by beating UD Las Palmas in the final, 3-1. He was responsible for overseeing the first free and democratic presidential elections at the Club since the Civil War.
