Background information: Whether or not to remain in APV

Reasons to stay in APV:

  • The Penya will remain official
  • The Penya has the right to 4 (four) tickets to cup finals and away matches in Europe
  • Membership card with % off in Valencia’s physical stores
  • Risk of negative impact on relationship with club

Reasons to leave

  • Expensive yearly quote of 85 euros
  • Ticket help limited to giving a message to the ticket office, price and the time we get allocated tickets are the same as if we bought online ourselves
  • Bureaucratic process to achieve tickets, a lot of mails and manual procedures
  • Membership cards are difficult to get and rarely used at stores
  • The need to have a right to tickets not used since 2008 ( cup final)


  1. Stay in APV
    • Continue as before
  2. Silent withdrawal
  3. Actively pull out and have unofficial contact with the club
    • Depend on personal relationships
    • Not official anymore (if club insists in taking it away)
  4. Try to unite international penyas to ask for a different solution, dealing directly with the club
    • Opportunity to stay official without dealing with APV

13 Change of statutes

13.1 Change of statute 4.5 and 4.6 to better suit the practical reality of the general assembly. Reduce submission time to 1 week before, in line with 4.3 call for assembly sent 15 days before.

13.2 Change to statute 3.1 on Honorary members. Remove requirement for 10 members to support the inclusion of an honorary member and open up for proposals from any member to be treated by the General Assembly, or by the Board.
