An agreement that was forged, as Aliaga recalled, in the process of changing the sports place to play in LEB Oro that Barça had, but that will also have other manifestations, such as the transfer of players by the FC Barcelona club to the Barris club Nord. The president of Força Lleida explained that the agreement provides for the transfer of “a minimum of two players and a maximum of four” during the first collaboration season, in which the agreement will be reviewed. For his part, the head of the FC Barcelona basketball section, Josep Cubells, explained that this agreement signed “with an already historic Catalan basketball club” represents “an opportunity to promote youth team players” and reinforce ForçaLleida with young people who in the future “will have to be promoted to the Barça professional squad”. , within the new policy of the club to bring Catalan players to the first team “; an agreement that Cubells has described as a” virtuous circle “but that will not be limited only to the training of talents: Other possible ways of approaching between both entities such as the celebration of friendly matches or technical collaborations.
Albert Aliaga has stressed that “it is not in any case a link” but a “collaboration agreement” and that Força Lleida maintains its entire identity. However, he stressed that “you cannot miss the opportunity to maintain a close relationship with the country’s main club” which will be beneficial “not only for the club but for the entire territory”, an extreme that Cubells has ratified by saying that “it is an entity-to-entity agreement”, avoiding any subordination and that it will “be extended annually”. If things go well, I’m sure it will move on. ‘
The players who will arrive through this agreement will do so throughout the season, so Force Lleida will guarantee the continuity of the squad throughout the entire journey of the young people who come on loan in this agreement.
