How much does it cost to become a director?

Catalan sports paper Sport claims that several presidential candidates are still looking for people who want to join the board if their candidacy wins the elections in June of this year.

Former Barcelona sports vice-president Sandro Rosell is said to almost have his board team ready. There would already have been some changes since he made the decision to run for president and there would still be four or five places that are still in play, but the majority of the directors would be decided upon (read more here).

Current Barcelona vice-presidents Alfons Godall and Jaume Ferrer, and now also former Barcelona economic vice-president Ferran Soriano, would on the other hand still be in the process of looking for possible board members.

All ex-directors and a lot of Catalan entrepreneurs and executives would have been asked if they would be interested to join a candidacy, some of them even by more than one candidate. Interested people should reportedly be willing to invest 10.000 to 60.000 euros in the campaign and be able to deposit a bank gurantee of 2 to 4 million euros.
