The club formalized their grip in a formal letter from president Josep Maria Bartomeu to the Pact co-ordinator Joan Rigol.”
“The Pact unites in excess of 3,500 associations and associations from a wide apparition scope of social and political positions which underwrite the Catalan individuals’ right to determination toward oneself”. Catalonia’s local government needs to hold a nonbinding submission on autonomy on Nov. 9. A Spanish court has suspended the vote to lead on its legitimateness.
There had been an inclination in the Spanish media that Barca had not been firm in their position on the matter beforehand, yet the announcement discharged on Friday included: “FC Barcelona has effectively flagged its position for determination toward oneself for Catalonia in a revelation made in the President’s Report at the 2013 Members Representatives Meeting – the most extreme power of the club.

Javier Tebas, the president of the Spain football league, he said on Tuesday that Barcelona and the other soccer teams in the northeastern would be avoided from Spain competitions if Catalonia turned into a different state.
Tebas said the nation’s sports law entitles one and only non-Spanish domain – Andorra – to lawfully partake in the league or other authority competitions. In the event that Catalonia were to increase autonomy, the law would need to be altered to let clubs Catalan with Espanyol and the second division teams Sabadell and Girona, back in.
Secessionist sentiment has surged in Catalonia as of late amid Spain’s monetary stagnation, and Barcelona’s Camp Nou has turned into a point of convergence of the development, with master autonomy cheers a typical gimmick amid matches.
Defender Gerard Pique from Barcelona as of late went to a huge rally in Barcelona clamoring for the 9 vote, and previous coach Pep Guardiola is an autonomy supporter.
Surveys demonstrate that while the greater part of the 7.5 million inhabitants of Catalonia help the vote, just around half support finishing hundreds of years old ties with whatever is left of Spain.
In April, the Spanish parliament voted down a solicitation by Catalonia to hold the submission, however provincial legislators continued with arrangements and formally called the choice a month ago.
The Spanish government contends that such a vote would damage the Spanish Constitution’s stipulation that just the national government can call choices on power, and that all Spaniards are entitled to vote in such a ballot.
Legitimate masters anticipate that the court will strike down the provincial Catalan law that gave the lawful sponsorship to the submission.
