The FC Barcelona celebrates this Sunday his Assembly of Compromisarios, in which they will touch several key points and will stand out the economic appearance of the Barcelona entity

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona will have his General Assembly of Compromisarios in the middle of a moment delicate to economic level that has 'dotted' to the sportive surroundings of the club and that it can have big consequences in the future immediate by the big debts that has the club and the difficulty to give him answer to all the open fronts that have in Can Barça, that are not few.

Joan Laporta, since it turned into the maximum Barcelona mandator, has treated to give him answer to the big problems that has the Barcelona entity, but the reality is that it has inherited a list of tasks and responsibilities very long and few resources to resolve them, by not saying any. The Managerial Board, that since it implanted in the offices has been doing malabares to keep 'to float' to the club, finds with the partners to give, of some way, the face.

In the General Assembly, this Sunday from the 15:00 hours (in Spain), will assist a total of 4.457 people. It fits to remember that they will gather the partners chosen by draw in the past year, the ones of more antiquity, as well as the members of the current directive of the Barça, ex-presidents of the club, members of the statutory commissions and the presidents of the Territorial Federations of Crags, those who will find in the Camp Nou.

Accounts and budget

There are four points, in principle, that are keys but that would not be the only. Beginning, will have to speak of a very tedious subject but that it is the most important. They will argue the accounts of the season 2019-2020 and the budget of the course that finish to finish (2020-2021), something that had had to approve or suspend by part of the partners the past year, but with the irruption of the pandemia of the coronavirus and sanitary restrictions was impossible.

This point the 'will expose' Jordi Moix, the economic vice-president of the FC Barcelona during the presidency of Josep María Bartomeu, the one who had approved it in his exercise. It is the difficult panorama of the losses of this season, that could reach the 300 millions as you report them in the last months.

And it is that in the budget that is slope for approving (of the course 20-21) had planned ingresar 828 million euros and obtain 1 million of profits. The reality is that the Barça will close the exercise with losses by second consecutive year (by the mentioned 300 'kilos'), that add to the 97 of the previous season. The aim of Laporta and company is that they approve the accounts to be able to negotiate crédicos (a strategy that can bring, a priori, big consequences).

Operations of refinance

In the Assembly also will touch a key point of the that will give a lot of what speak. The Compromisarios will have to approve (or no) the operations of refinance of the Barcelona entity, starred by the investment fund Golsman Sachs, by a mount total of 525 millions, a figure that can restructure the global debt of the Barça, that surpasses the 1.173 millions to 30 June of the past year.

The Superliga European

When Josep María Bartomeu announced, in his farewell of the Barça, that had approved the participation of the club in a possible Superliga European, left clear that they were the partners those who went to give the last word, a premise that, obviously, has kept Joan Laporta and that it will be key in the Assembly to decide the participation or no of the Barcelona in the competition created by Florentino Pérez.

Although the Barça is one of the three teams that keep in the ship of the Superliga (beside the Madrid and Juventus), report them indicate that in the agreement that has the club with the tournament exists a clásula that deja to the partners at the expense of the final decision.

Other key points

It expects that Joan Laporta also pronounce regarding the continuity of Ronald Koeman, to the one who the club reaffirmed like trainer until the summer of 2022, as well as the advances of the renewal of Lionel Messi. It will speak, surely, of the controversial dismissals that have taken place in the club in the last weeks and that have not left satisfied to all the partners. On the other hand, it fits to remember that the vote on the reform of the Statutes of the club has deleted of the diary of the Assembly because of the change of date of the meeting (of 4 July to 20 June).
