Joan Laporta´s five-year reign as Barcelona president could be brought to an end on Sunday if club members decide to oust him in a motion of censure.

Fans will head to the polls after club member Oriol Giralt collected the 5882 member signatures required to request a referendum on the Barca presidency.

Laporta needs to win the backing of over two-thirds of voters with a minimum turnout of 10 percent of members entitled to take part in order to remain in charge.
