“If the agreement has been delayed a few days, it’s because we were looking for a formula to help the club and also its workers in this difficult time. We didn’t speak until now because our priority was to find real solutions to help the club, but also those most affected.”

FC Barcelona is one of the very few massive clubs that isn’t actually owned by one owner or wealthy ownership group. Instead, the club is owned by over 100,000 supporters or ‘members’ that donate a certain amount of money annually. The members also vote on a club president every four years.
