A bang in Catalonia: Josep Maria Bartomeu declares that Barça is committed to participating in a pan-European competition. However, there is also resistance.
The outgoing board of the Spanish top club FC Barcelona has been one of the last official acts to agree to participate in a future super competition. “I can share extraordinary news,” said President Josep Maria Bartomeu after earlier announcing the resignation of the entire management team. club. “
Last week, the British media reported on another attempt at a super competition. Accordingly, there are initial talks to have a total of up to 18 top clubs on the continent compete against each other in the competition. Uefa had again strongly opposed such plans. In recent years, several ideas about a possible super competition had come to the public, but they did not prevail. As FC Barcelona is a member-run club, supporters have yet to vote on Bartomeu’s proposal at the upcoming annual general meeting.
