Josep-Lluis Nunez-Clemente (Barcelona President)
35th President of Barcelona F.C.
1st July 1978 – 23rd July 2000
Born 7th September 1931
Died 3rd December 2018 (aged 87)
He was elected club president, despite having no previous connection with the club. His main objectives were to establish Barcelona as a world class sports club and to give the club financial stability.
Nunez oversaw one of the club's most successful eras and has been Barcelona's most successful president in terms of winning trophies. During his presidency, the club’s four professional teams amassed 176 trophies – 30 in football, 36 in basketball, 65 in handball and 45 in roller hockey.
This included a remarkable quartet in 1999, the club's centenary year, when the four teams were all crowned champions of Spain. Barcelona were also European football champions in 1992.
