Barcelona - Barcelona says its elections for its next club president will be disputed between four candidates.

The four candidates surpassed the minimum limit of signatures of support from club members needed to run.

Bartomeu, who had to resign last month as stipulated by club bylaws, presented 8,554 valid signatures.

Laporta presented the second most with 4,272. Benedito had 3,367, while Freixa had 3,068.
