Worrying indifference

Barça only received 15,820 requests to go to the Camp Nou, which could accommodate 29,803 members. More than 83,000 members were eligible to enter the stadium.


If it is true that indifference is the worst contempt, the Barça partner is sending a very clear message to his club, which begins the championship on Sunday with a very serious problem. Before the return of the public to the playing fields on this first day of LaLIga, the Blaugrana club met with the absolute passion of its followers to watch the game against Real Sociedad on Sunday live.

After 17 months playing behind closed doors, Barça had the possibility of gathering 29,803 fans at the Camp Nou. The Catalan entity opened a period so that the about 83,500 subscribers that the club has could make the request for their entry to go to see the game live. They took for granted at Barça that there would be many more requests than available places, so they planned a raffle as it usually happens in the finals, where the requests exceed the tickets available by the entity.

Well, Barcelona made it official yesterday that there will be no draw because the number of requests has barely exceeded fifty percent of available seats. The numbers seen in perspective hurt: of the 83,500 potential viewers, only 15,820 have bothered to request a ticket.

The abandonment of the member of the Camp Nou stands is a clear symptom of the fan's anger with the club since time immemorial. They are famous "the years of the cement" that characterized some mandates of José Luis Núñez in hard times of the team.

The main reason that seems to explain this disinterest is the state of depression and shock that has taken hold of Barcelona after the departure of Messi and the situation at the club. It may be temporary, but many Catalans the last thing they want now is to dig into their own wound.

Other more official sources point out that August is a bad time and that the member is on the beach and point out that in September it will be corrected
