The Barça Foundation 2022/23 gets underway in the best scenario
The male and female players of this team have appeared at Spotify Camp Nou after the premiere of the short film 'When winning everything is not the most important thing', that gathers their experiences from last season
The official photo of the Barça Foundation squad, with the coaching staff, the Ambassadors -Aitana Bonmatí and Sergi Roberto-, the General Manager of the Foundation, Marta Segú, and the President Joan Laporta, closed the magnificent presentation ceremony of this team, which took place today at Spotify Camp Nou and at the FC Barcelona Museum. The champion of the Genuine League 2021/22, the Compañerismo group, has set in motion in the same venue used by the first team and with all the attention of the media. Tomorrow he will travel to Tarragona, where this weekend he will start playing in the 2022/23 Genuine League.
The Barça Foundation male and female players will not forget the day they went out through the tunnel of the Stadium, one by one, listening to their names, and once again danced the famous haka in the company of the President of the Club, the General Director of the Foundation and its Ambassadors.
Àngels Prieto, who presented the event, spoke briefly with one of the Barça Foundation footballers, Yenny Cabanillas, with the coach Josep Ferré, and also with Aitana Bonmatí and Sergi Roberto, before President Laporta took to the floor to point out that the creation of this team has been a success, for all the positive things that it has brought about for its male and female players, and he has assured to be especially proud of their behaviour and the effort they have shown. “It is time to start a new season. With new additions to the team and the coaching staff, but with the same eagerness and with the same idea of competing to win and to continue growing as people", he concluded.
A presentation was made in the audiovisual room on the second floor of the museum before the event that took place at the Spotify Camp Nou. In this initial presentation, 'When winning everything is not the most important part', the twelve-minute short film produced by Barça Studios draws upon the experiences of the Barça Foundation in its début season, and the success it achieved both on and off the pitch.
The event was attended by the Minister for Social Rights of the Generalitat de Catalunya, Carles Campuzano, the director of the Catalan Traffic Service and member of the Accessibility Council of Catalonia and the Social Council of the Guttmann Institute, Ramón Lamiel, and Ramon Vilà, representative of the Les Corts district.
Tomorrow, Friday 11 November, the Barça Foundation team will travel to Tarragona to play out the first phase of LaLiga Genuine at the Futbol Salou Sports Centre. The winning team in last year’s 'Compañerismo' team-spirit group will be playing this 2022/23 season in the 'Deportividad' Sportsmanship group and will début on 12 November against Valencia CF and UD Almería, at 10AM and 4PM respectively. On the following day, Sunday 13 November, they will play against CD Leganès, at 12 noon.
