This year, an U14 match was played between FC Barcelona and CF Parets, which ended with a victory for the blaugrana team in a penalty shootout. The match was attended by Josep Seguer’s son and his family, who received the recognition of those presents and made the ceremonial kick-off.

Then came the 44th anniversary celebration party, which brought together a hundred people. In addition to honoring its oldest and youngest members, the PB Parets del Vallès also presented the 3rd Alexia Putellas Award for values in women’s sports, which this year went to Sandra Sanchez, referee of the Spanish Women’s Basketball League. Present at the event were the president of the PB Parets, Joaquim Esteve; the mayor of Parets del Vallès, Francesc Juzgado; the sports councilor, O’hara Valdivia; and the former blaugrana player Alberto Manga.
