This Wednesday evening, the Barça Players Association (BPA) organised a welcoming act for 52 new female Club player and ex-player members. The BPA President, Ramon Alfonseda, the FC Barcelona Vice President, Jordi Cardoner, and Pau Vilanova, the FC Barcelona Director in charge of relations with the BPA, were all in attendance at the event held at the 1899 Auditorium.
35 of the 52 new BPA members attended the event, and they were able to collect their membership cards in person. Before that, ex-players Noemí Rubio and Núria Llansà, and the current 1st Team captain, Marta Unzué, explained the reasons why the group were joining the BPA.
After that, a video was shown in which a good number of Association members wanted to personally welcome the new members. Amongst them were Andrés Iniesta, Lobo Carrasco, Gica Popescu and Frederic Dehú. The group of 52 new female BPA members is made up of 14 FCB Women’s 1st Team players and 38 ex-players from different teams throughout the Club. This is the second group entry in the Association by female ex-player members, after a group of 10 pioneer players from the FC Barcelona Women’s Team joined the organisation in 2013.
Ramon Alfonseda statement
“Your wider and deeper viewpoints as women will make the BPA dream possible, to be more than an association”.
Jordi Cardoner statement
“FC Barcelona is the sports club with the most female members in the world; 40,000. The men took 100 years to win a Champions League, now we’re not in a rush; we’re on the right track.”
Noemí Rubio statement
“As women players we’re starting to feel valued. It’s now a source of pride for us to feel that we are being recognised.”
