This was explained by Xavi Vilajoana, a member of the board of directors who approved the contract with the competition
Qthat the Barça I ended up disputing the Super league it is something that depends on its partners. Entry into the competition is subject to Barça members giving their approval at the next assembly of delegates.
So he explained Xavi Vilajoana on Rac1. The candidate for the last culés elections was a member of the board of directors that approved the contract with the Super League for the entry of Barça. However, he himself has explained that in that contract it is clear that the Barça team’s adhesion is subject to what the Catalans members decide in the Assembly.
“There is a firm that in principle agreed to adhere to this new competition, but that it had no legal force because it was said that it had to be ratified in the Assembly of Compromisarios,” he commented. “The contract was approved in the last meeting we had. If it is not executed, there is no compensation. We made it clear that it had to be ratified by the Assembly,” Vilajoana explained on the radio.
This contradicts the version of Florentino Pérez, president of the Super League, who assured in The beach bar that the contracts were binding and the clubs could no longer back down.
As for how this project has been cooked, Vilajoana explained that “this starts in the middle of the 2016 season” and that the negotiations to enter the competition were personally carried out Josep Maria Bartomeu.
