The Departament de Penyes and the whole penyes movement presented him with a 50th birthday cake and a new first team shirt with the number 50 on the back.

Cardoner thanked all the people at the meal for their support at what he called “unique surroundings” and expressed his satisfaction with the way the penyes represent the Club: “thank you, not just for what you do and who you are, but also for what you represent. The Club is trying to understand the penyes movement better and give you everything you need to continue to be tour ambassadors in the wider world”.
