No one person or business group "owns" FC Barcelona.

The club has over 155,000 "socis" ("socios" or "members") who each pay up to €140 annually for the privilege.

The socis govern the club by electing a president of the board of directors every four years.

Randomly selected members are appointed to serve as delegates to the general assembly, which approves the annual budget.

Most Spanish clubs, including Real Madrid, are run in the same manner.
