He FC Barcelona has informed this Monday of the options for compensation to subscribers for this end of the 2019/20 season behind closed doors, due to the coronavirus, which includes a 25 percent refund of the price paid for “not enjoyed” matches.

They will be able to request this temporary leave, which will entitle them to maintain ownership of the Seient Lliure subscription and discount the following season, 2021/22, and transfer their subscription for the following 2020/21 campaign.
On the other hand, For each match that cannot be attended due to capacity limitations, the club will return the proportional part of the cost of the subscription, which will accumulate in a discount bag at the end of the season.
As long as the club does not have one hundred percent of the capacity of the Camp Nou, for the next season, the protocol of ‘Clean and Safe Stadium’ will be applied, with priority of assistance for subscribers, to whom 85% will be allocated of the permitted capacity, and the remaining 15% for sale to members and the general public.
The first vice president of FC Barcelona, Jordi Cardoner, explained the changes in this season of fertilizers. “The next season and for the tenth consecutive season the prices of the fertilizers will be maintained, only the CPI will rise“he recalled.
“Facing the payments of the fertilizers that will be passed from the month of August we will be very careful to be able to present an aid plan for those partners who due to their particular circumstances cannot afford the payment and must do so later. We want to convey the certainty and security that our subscribers will not lose their subscriber status due to an adverse economic situation, but will have the reinforcement of the club, “he argued.
