In the event that the FC Barcelona elections are held on January 24, something that remains to be seen, only Gerard Piqué will be able to vote among all the players on the Barça squad, since the Catalans play that day in Elche

Calendar of FC Barcelona

In these moments and at least until the Friday 15 January, the elections of the FC Barcelona follow programmed for 24 January. That was the date that fixed the Managing Board in his moment and only the intervention of the Government of Catalonia will do that this can change. The pandemia goes from bad to worse and the numbers of infected and died does not do more than going up, by what the reality is that the celebration of these comicios runs danger.

Seemingly, this Friday there will be a meeting between the Barça, the Procicat and the general Secretary of l'Esport to evaluate the numbers of this week and dictaminar if possible that the elections are the 24. The experts say that the best would be to postpone them some weeks until the situation epidemiológica was better, but Joan Laporta insists in that they have to celebrate in this date and never later.

In case that the candidate go out with his and the comicios keep in the day fixed, only a player of the first staff of the FC Barcelona will be able to vote. In this case, only Gerard Hammered, lesionado of long length, will be able to approach to put his ballot in the urn and choose like this to the next president of the group barcelonista. This has to to the adjusted calendar of League, that will keep occupied to all the other.

This same day 24, the Barça visits Elche to contest the day 19 of this championship suspender belt. The meeting is programmed for the 16:15 hours, by what the culés will displace to the city ilicitana a day before. This will prevent to vote to any footballer of the first team that wished to do it, since it will not have possibility neither in the morning of the 24 neither in the afternoon.

A form to vote could be by means of post or by telematic vote, but in the elections of the Barcelona is forbidden to do it, by what is not a viable option unless it change the norm. The only way to choose to the next mandator barcelonista is presencialmente, by what only Hammered will do it, as it already did in the ones of 2015 beside other ex players illustrate like Carles Puyol, Andrés Iniesta or Xavi Hernández.

Sergi Roberto and Ansu Fati will not be able to vote

Sergi Roberto also could vote in case that it did not travel to Elche, but everything aims that the one of Reus will go in in this announcement. The side is almost recovered of his injury and, if it does not happen at all while, will be in the Martínez Valero. On the other hand, Ansu Fati follows recovering and neither much less will play against the ilicitanos, but will not be able to vote because it needs a year of antiquity like partner to do it, a requirement that does not fulfil.
