MOST COMMENTED

Joan Laporta, president of famed Futbol Club Barcelona, is scheduled to lecture at Stanford University on Monday afternoon.

The lecture "More than a Club in the World" will take place 4:30-6 p.m. at Kissick Auditorium, Arrillaga Family Sports Center, on the Stanford campus in Palo Alto, Calif. It is open to the public.

"More than a Club in the World" has long been the slogan of one of the best-known clubs in the world. FC Barcelona became a haven for Catalan sentiment when Catalan self-government and Catalan culture were proscribed during the Franco dictatorship. It has since become a global soccer giant, while continuing to identify Europe's largest and most developed non-state culture. FC Barcelona has developed a strong interest in the U.S. market in recent years,

Laporta, who became Barcelona president in 2003, specializes in civil and trading law and has his own firm, Laporta & Arbós Advocats Associats.

The lecture is sponsored by Stanford's Iberian Studies Program, Forum on Contemporary Europe, the Office of the Provost, Department of Athletics, and the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies.
