Bartomeu wins Barça elections

July 20, 2015

Saturday saw Josep Maria Bartomeu returned as the club president after members overwhelmingly voted in his favour. Bartomeu became president following the resignation of Sandro Rosell and faced former club president and bitter critic Joan Laporta.

In the end Bartomeu was backed by 54% of the 47,720 voters who turned out, the third highest turnout in the club’s history. Laporta received the backing of 33% of members.

Bartomeu will remain president until 2021.
