Club opens new way for club presidents to obtain the card
New process set up in line with desire to help penyes follow regulations
Following the decisions made at the last Supporters Clubs Congress and as part of the commitment to help penyes follow the regulations in the Supporters Clubs Regulations, a new procedure has been established to allow the penya president to obtain the Commitment Card. This can be done, like so many procedures related to the penyes movement, via the club’s delegate.
The president of a club needs to fill in the application form provided by FC Barcelona and returned it signed by the president and the president of the territorial federation. The delegate will personally complete the procedure at the OAB and make the payment, either in cash or by card.
In order to keep this card, the holder must renew it annually for three years during the period from June 1st to October 30th. Penya presidents can also renew their card via their delegate, although the cardholder must personally renew the card at least once during the three year period.
Changes in the board
If the president or the board of a club changes, the Club will open a three month period during which the penya can regularise the situation in line with the regulations.

Traditional process still valid
The process of personally ratifying the Commitment Card at the OAB is still valid for penya presidents.
This new process is designed to make it as easy as possible for presidents to meet with the demands of the regulations.
