Potential candidates for FC Barcelona upcoming presidential election.
Barcelona president Josep Maria bartomeu officially resigned on 27th October 2020 having served since 2014 after Sandro Rosell resigned. Bartomeu was Barcelona 40th president and it’s been over 5months since his resignation and Barcelona is already warming up for a new president to be elected.
The election which was supposed to hold early January was later rescheduled and a new date was reached due to the COVID- 19 pandemic. The new election is said to hold on 7th of March 2021 being sunday.
- There have been campaigns going on and the two outstanding duo now are both Joan laporta and Victor Font. These two are the most active contestants for this post and we can boldly say that one of them will emerge winner at the end of the day.
The former, Joan Laporta was once a Barcelona president from November 2010 to December 2012, those were the years Barcelona went on winning a Sextuple in a season. That being one of their greatest Achievements and why they will always be remembered in the history of football.
So we are safe to say that he (Joan Laporta) might have the upper hand in this election.
The latter, Victor Font is a telecommunication and technology enterpreneur. He is a Co-founder and CEO at delta partners. He’s also a board member of the firm. He’s a successful business man. His aim according to him is to reform Barca not just sporting wise but also to make critical economic changes that will ensure that the future of Barcelona remains in a good shape.
While Joan Laporta is having the upper hand. We still think Victor Font shouldn’t be underrated. He (Victor Font) might be the solution Barca need to be great again.
