Jaume Roures has no interest in Barcelona elections

The head of Mediapro, Jaume Roures, distanced himself from the presidential election at Barcelona next year. El Confidencial said that Jaume would assist a linked candidacy between Joan Laporta and Victor Font. Roures deeply respects the institution and Barcelona, but he won’t have the slightest connection with that. “I find it very strong: presumably Joan Canadell and I agreed that Laporta and Victor Font get together: Font as President and Laporta as Vice President,” Roures told reporters. “I have never seen Mr. Canadell in my life – and I don’t know him. We didn’t even meet each other in a restaurant. I didn’t speak and did not see Laporta for two years, and it has to be four years with Victor Font. I have no interest in that world.”

Roures also discussed Mediapro’s involvement in adding crowd images and sounds to the broadcast of La Liga matches. “Although it’s hard to appreciate, because the broadcasts are very complex, from audio, innovation and all that … But I’m pleased, and the audience was perfect,” he said. “For example, they didn’t work at all well in Germany to start with, and here they are almost in line with what they were before the COVID-19. Sporting wise, and in general, everything went well. I am happier than I thought I could. All concerns were about fitness, and all that has been dismissed.”
