BARCELONA WIN ECA CLUB OF THE YEAR AWARD




Winning the Champions League, La Liga and the
Copa del Rey ensured the Catalans were rewarded
with the accolade in Monday's ceremony
Barcelona have been crowned Club of the Year for
their treble-winning efforts in 2014-15 by the
European Club Association (ECA).

Luis Enrique's debut season was practically perfect
as the Catalans waltzed to the Champions League,
La Liga and Copa del Rey clean sweep, following a
phenomenal second half of the season.

Blowing their chance of claiming a much-vaunted
sextet by losing the Spanish Super Cup to Athletic
Bilbao didn't affect Barca's chances of claiming the
accolade at Monday's ECA award ceremony in
Geneva.

Europa League runners up Dnipro were also
rewarded with the Best Sporting Progress award for
reaching the final of the second-tier continental
competition against all odds and expectations.

The Best Community and Social Responsibility
Programme reward went to Arsenal for their efforts
in working with the local London community to
tackle the growing level of youth employment in the
area.

The fourth and final ECA award for 2015, Best
Achievement, went to Estonian side Levadia Tallinn
for their “Together we move” scheme aimed at
improving stadium accessibility for fans who require
assistance dogs.
