following steps must be observed:

1.Application and name
Given that the possibility of creating a Barcelona supporters club is bound among other conditions to

the President) that aremembers or commitment card holders
The Club, within a maximum period of 15 days will verify whether the "Application" complies with the
requirements of the regulations and will inform the interested party of the possibility of
continuing with the process for constituting the new supporters club.
Once FC Barcelona has recognised in writing the possibility of going ahead with the application, the
supporters club will have 90 days to apply for "Provisional Recognition" from the Supporters Clubs
Department, for which it will have to fill in the form provided by said department and which must be
accompanied by copies of the following documentation:

membership or commitment card details.
- - 2/3 of the Governing Board must habitually reside in the town or city.
- - As soon as it becomes official, the supporters club will provide the Club a list with all its
members' details (including name, surname, ID number, date of birth and gender)
Once this documentation has been received, the Club will send it to the delegate of the Advisory
Committee in the corresponding zone, who will validate it within a maximum period of 30 days. If the
delegate's review is favourable, the Club will provide the following to the supporters club:
a) Certificate expressly authorising the use of the name applied for and/or other indentify symbols
of the Club
b) Validated model of statutes
Once the name of the supporters club and/or identity symbols of the Club have been validated, the
future supporters club will have a period of 90 days to present the documents (model of statutes and
foundati onal deeds) to the corresponding registry office and shall then present a document to FC

corresponding autonomous community in the case of the rest of Spain.
c) National registry office of associations at the Spanish consulate or embassy in the corresponding
country when all or some of the members are of Spanish nationality in the case of foreign supporters
clubs. If no members of the supporters club are of that nationality, the application for
registration must be referred to the competent body in the country in question.
Once the documentation has been processed with the corresponding body, the future supporters club
must provide a sealed copy of the statutes or the document that accredits that the association is
official, in the case of foreign supporters clubs, to the Club to be validated and approved by the
Board of Directors of FC Barcelona.
The Club, once approved, will provide in writing its recognition by means of a welcome letter and
