A team formed by 27 men and women with intellectual disability
Last September, a new football team was formed, made up of 22 boys and 5 girls with intellectual disability . The creation of this team has been one of the first social objectives of Joan Laporta's Board of Directors, and one of the first actions taken by the Club's new Diversity and Inclusion Department.
The Barça Foundation team participated, during the 22-23 season and for the first time, in LaLiga Genuine Santander, a competition that places value on scoring goals, but also on sportsmanship, fair play, teamwork, respect and self-improvement. LaLiga Genuine Santander aims to further the integration and inclusion of people with disabilities in the world of sport, and consists mainly of teams representing clubs of the Professional Football League.
