The Bobby Robson Foundation auction winners attend Barça’s first team training session

The first two winners of the Bobby Robson and Breakthrough Brest Cancer solidarity auction visited the Club’s installations this weekend.

The first two winners of the Bobby Robson and Breakthrough Brest Cancer solidarity auction visited the Club’s installations this weekend. FC Barcelona donated a chance to watch a first-team training session and a game at the Camp Nou.

The first two winners are two French nationals that live in London, David and Michael Belhassen, father and son. They attended yesterday’s afternoon training session and they got the chance to snap photos of themselves with the players and Josep Guardiola presented the pair with two Barça jerseys autographed by the whole team.

The most exciting meeting was between Cesc and Michael. Michael, who favours FC Barcelona over his local club Arsenal, was especially excited to meet the Catalan midfielder in person. Both Michael and his father will watch today’s match between Barça and Sporting at the Camp Nou.

The online auction took place between the 8th and 23rd of last October, the Belhassen family donated £12,000. There was a second pair that also won this past October, they will visit the Club at the end of the season. (via FCBarcelona.com)
