Víctor Font has announced his plan to run in the elections to become Barcelona’s next president in 2021. Font is a business man who is the CEO of Delta Partners and is a vast telecommunications mogul. His background has led him to become a someone that has been rumored to run in years past, but just hasn’t pulled the trigger.

His campaign slogan is: “Yes to the future” and he has a project outlined on his website with the following ideas.

LET’S WIN: “We need to gather the talent of the best generation of football players in history, and ensure that decisions in the sporting area are made by them.”

LET’S COMPETE: ”If we want to compete and at the same time keep the club’s ownership in the hands of its members, we must rethink the revenue generation model.”

“We must be able to sell products and services directly to the millions of Barça fans all over the world, minimising intermediaries.”

LET’S DECIDE: ”It is necessary to redefine the club’s governance model and the members’ role in decision making.”

“We must make sure that each decision made by the club is managed by those with the appropriate skills and experience. The prerequisite to join the board cannot be limited to the capacity to underwrite the club’s budget.”

UNIQUE: ”Let’s take advantage of Barça’s influence to help face the main challenges posed by 21st century society.”

“We must use the influence that Barça has all over the world to develop an ambitious set of initiatives to contribute to face the main challenges posed by 21st century society. We must prove that we want to continue being ‘more than a club’ in the future.”
