Supporters and Solidarity, an inseparable binomial

The solidarity actions of supporters position Barça as a point of reference in this area

If there is, within the world of Supporters Clubs, a topic that has gained prominence in an overwhelming way in recent years, this is solidarity. And it could not be otherwise taking into account that the Barça, champion of the values surrounding sport, has been increasingly focused on supporting and promoting campaigns in this area. And the Supporters Clubs, the Club‘s ambassadors across the world, are the ones that, in many cases, are best suited to carry out solidarity actions.

There are all kinds of activities in this area. Some go hand in hand with the Club or the FCB Foundation. A very clear example is the involvement of Supporters Clubs and Federations in the Solidary Supporters Club Member Day in 2015, when the movement mobilized more than 10,000 people from all points of Catalonia.

Many actions are also born of initiatives of their own, some of them propitiated by cases that experienced and suffered within their territories; the support to children with serious illnesses and needing treatments are a very common example. Also raising funds for local NGOs or participating in food, clothing, toys, or school supplies collections. The Barça has been a pioneer in this area and is a world reference. And, the Supporters Clubs have followed, with enthusiasm, this way. A supporterstastic road that still makes us bigger.
