Young Barcelona fans setting up candidacy

Spanish news agency Europa Press claims that a group of young Barcelona club members, headed by Alexis Plaza, has decided to take part in the elections for president of FC Barcelona later this year with the 'Somni Blaugrana' [Blaugrana Dream] project, that would include 21 people between 25 and 30 years old.

Sources of the candidacy told the news agency: "The intention of the project is to bring the club closer to the youngest club members. We are now focusing on getting the necessary signatures and we're optimistic about that because we're getting the support of many members and non-members. We don't believe that the profile of the other candidates appeals to young people."

The 'Somni Blaugrana' candidacy would be lead by Alexis Plaza, a 27-year old economist who is active in several organizations of the entourage of the club. Plaza is said to be the grandson of one of the founders of FC Barcelona.
