FC Barcelona has won the Fair Play Award for the cleanest record in the Liga BBVA. Presented by the Spanish Federation and its General Assembly on Tuesday, it is the fourth time in seven years that it has been collected by the Catalan club (2005/06, 08/09, 10/11, 11/12). As manager, Pep Guardiola has only missed out on leading his team to the accolade once. This year, however, the trophy was shared with Malaga, who also finished on 91 points.

Two years running

Barça is now the club that has won the title the most times. This season, they topped the table for most of the season, eventually ending on the same total of 91 penalty points as Malaga.

Team, club and fans set example

The RFEF scoring system evaluates not just the team but also its club and fans. Players accumulate penalty points for getting a yellow card (1 point), two yellows in one game (2 points) or a direct red (3 points). The Competition Committee can also penalise directors whenever it sees fit, and fans are also analysed on their behaviour both home and away. So, FC Barcelona has been a wonderful all-round example of Fair Play this season.
