The Barcelona board of directors have confirmed that the club will be holding a general assembly in compliance with the club statutes to discuss plenty of important issues that have currently arisen at the club. It will be held on the 4th of July at 3 PM CET for the first call and 3:30 PM for the second.
It will be the first general assembly of the members since the 2019/20 season, since the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent health situation prevented any gatherings of the sort.
Plenty of topics will be discussed on the agenda, one of which includes the all-important issue of the European Super League and Barcelona’s continued involvement in the breakaway competition alongside Real Madrid and Italian giants Juventus.
The club is supposed to conduct a referendum of the socios to take a final call on whether or not Barcelona will further take part in the formation and execution of the Super League project. The assembly will likely try and finalise a date thereof.
The president’s report will also be one of the key topics, which will discuss in all probability, the results of the current financial audit in light of Barcelona’s massive financial crisis. Laporta will also reportedly propose the refinancing of club operations for a total amount of up to €525 million.
In light of recent news regarding the shady dealings of the previous board of directors, where illegal contracts and files have been discovered, the current directives may also propose action to be taken against the liable parties.
The financial report and budget for the 2020-21 season will also be discussed. The general assembly will be very important heading into next season, in order to start fresh with all the members, with full transparency as Laporta begins this challenging second presidential tenure at Barcelona.
