This Sunday the Assembly of Compromisarios Members will take place at the Palau Blaugrana, in which the Laporta Board will have to stand up and very important decisions will be made
This Sunday 17 October will be a historical day in the FC Barcelona, further of the party that will contest the first team in front of Valencia, to the 21:00 hours, in the Camp Nou. Before, in the Palau Blaugrana, will carry out the Assembly of Partners Compromisarios, call to be one of the most important of the last years. In the same, the Managerial Board of Joan Laporta will subject to vote several appearances that will be key for the future, to short and long term, of the club.
The partners will have to approve or put against of several points 'candentes', but the subject of the modification of the Statutes of the club is the one who more generate controversial and discussion in the previous of the Assembly, remembering, between other things, that the Managerial Board asks lto temporary suspension of the article 67 to avoid his resignation the next year if there are losses. Also, it will argue the Espai Barça, the accounts of the club, the Barça Studios...
Reform of Statutes... I refuse from this time on?
The most transcendental point of the Assembly of the Barça is the reform of the Statutes of the club, with upsetting in the article 67. It is necessary to remember that Laporta arrives with the pressure of seven groups of opinion that asked that the most important points voted separately. With the above-mentioned section, the president looks for 'avoid' new problems with the guarantees and asks to the Partners suspend of transitory way the article, until they can obtain a positive net heritage.
The explanation that offer from the club is that said article does not contemplate the impact that has had the Covid-19 in the accounts of the Barça, that have seen very struck with the pandemia. Of not being modified or suspended, the Board would have to resign, remembering that the article establishes that the directors have to close all the exercises with a positive result after the taxes, with a margin of two closings of accounts to compensate the losses. In case of not to achieve it, have to present his resignation.
The Espai Barça of the 1.500 millions
Joan Laporta and company will have to defend the cost of the project of the Espai Barça, that has shot to the 1.500 million euros, when in principle it was presupuestado in 600 'kilos'. "There have been changes of improvement because the previous project of the Espai Barça remained obsolete. It is spectacular. To me it put me the hen of skin when they presented it to me", explained recently the Barcelona president to 'RAC1', the one who also will have to justify the reason this decision do not take it the social mass to the complete, instead of the Assembly.
The accounts and a new confirmation of the crisis
The second and third point of the Assembly will be the report and aprobacación of the liquidacieon of the previous exercise and budget for the 2021-22. The Barça already has confirmed that the losses of the exercise 2020-2021 reached the 481 million euros. Ferran Reverter, CEO of the club, confirmed in the explanation of the 'due diligence' the details of the economic crisis of the Barcelona. Once again, the directors will have to explain the background of the numbers in red for the approval (or no?) Of the partners.
What will happen with Barça Studios?
Another of the points 'candentes' of the Assembly is the permission that Joan Laporta will ask to the partners to transmit to one or more investors a minoritary participation of the social capital, with the intention of monetizar the already made investment, by the sale like such, but also the finance of projects to develop them, accelerate them and later, commercialise them. The intention of the Board is that Barça Studios go out of the stagnation and can compete, in a future, with other platforms.
The rest of variations and points of the Board
To the equal that with the temporary suspension of the article 67, the partners will have to vote in other variations of the Statutes, highlighting the reduction of the mandates of six to five years, the enlargement of the members of the Board, of 21 to 25, as well as the suspension of the Confederació World-wide of Penyes. Of the same way, will argue the possibility that the partners can give of high from any part of the world, of telematic form.
Likewise, it is on the table the inclusion in the Statutes that the Barça will promote the democratic values of equality and no discrimination and will struggle by the eradication of all the male chauvinistic attitudes, homófobas and racist in the social and sportive field, and the increase of power of the Commission of Ethical and Discipline.
