Bartomeu, whose mandate expires in March 2021, appears to be only the third president in Barcelona’s history to face such a vote.

Voting is expensive for the club

Jordi Farre, the future Barcelona presidential candidate, is delighted to have gathered the required number of signatures to pass a vote of no confidence against Josep Maria Bartomeu’s board. Bartomeu, whose mandate expires in March 2021, appears to be only the third president in Barcelona’s history to face such a vote. “A short while ago, we surpassed 16,520 signatures, the number needed to move forward with this vote of no confidence,” Farre said. “We will reach almost 20,000 as the number of invalid signatures is deficient”. Farre is content with this progress, and his next goal is for the club to skip holding the vote itself. Which, in his opinion, would be unnecessary and complicated. “We are delighted, we expect the board to retire soon. So we don’t have to go through voting unsavouriness,”

“I hope they retire; it would be pointless to vote after 20,000 members came out and told them to leave. Voting is a little awkward right now with the situation we are in, and expensive for the club”. Farre believes that the next time members are asked to cast their vote. It should be directly for the new president, not a vote in the current board. But he is prepared for all the events and believes votes can be held in the current climate. “I would ask the club to save us and go straight to new elections,” added Farre. “We have to adapt the protocol according to the circumstances. My proposal is four collection points in each province.”
