On Sunday, the Penya Barcelonista del Poblenou celebrated its 55th anniversary with a commemorative dinner at the Eurohotel Diagonal Port, attended by Barça vice-president Jordi Cardoner and more than 100 club members.

Cardoner: “I was thrilled to come”

The FCB director had kind words for his hosts, saying that “celebrating an anniversary like this has a lot of merit. It is not easy for a supporters club to survive so long. I was thrilled to be able to come because we have been united for 55 years and I wanted to thank you for the loyalty you have shown to the club over all these years”.

The president of the PB del Poblenou, Ricard Palau, thanked the vice-president and ex-player Ferran Olivella for coming, pointing out that “55 years ago, when the club was founded, Olivella was one of the stars of the time”.

The legendary Barça defender was also excited to be able to attend, saying that “after 12 years at Barça, it is like a home to me. I am surprised that there are still so many people who remember me”.
