Manel Arroyo at the Martín Martínez Memorial

The Andujar Barça Supporters Club celebrated, last weekend, the second edition of the Martin Martinez Memorial.

Symposium with the media

The events began on Friday afternoon in the town of Torredonjimeno, where a reception was held at the Town Hall. Manel Arroyo was welcomed by a representation of the council, headed by the deputy mayor of the town, Encarnación Horno, and the president of the Tosiria FC Barcelona Supporters Club, Emilio Lopez.

In the afternoon, a symposium was held entitled "The media in modern football". The discussion included representatives from various media outlets, as well as the delegate of the Supporters Clubs Advisory Council from Andalucia Central, Tomas Martinez. Dinner at the Andujar Venice Salon with the supporters club board was Friday's closing event.

An emotional day

On Saturday morning a Mass was held to honor all deceased friends, and the association ALES, children who are battling cancer. The twelve children who attended the Mass were given a gift by Manel Arroyo, on behalf of FC Barcelona.

The events ended with a lunch at the "Casa de Cofradías" of Andujar, with about two hundred people present, which included an emotional tribute to Martin Martinez, who was much loved by the whole supporters club movement, especially those from Andalusia.
