Former president Laporta, entrepreneur Font and former director Freixa are the final three candidates

FC Barcelona have postponed its presidential election originally scheduled for Jan. 24 due to a spike in novel coronavirus cases in the region of Catalonia, the Catalan government said Friday.

The regional government, who met with Barca representatives Friday, had extended restrictions a day earlier to fight the spread of the virus, preventing people from leaving their municipality unless for work, education or medical reasons.

Former president Joan Laporta, entrepreneur Victor Font and former director Toni Freixa are the final three candidates for the election, which is being held to choose a successor after Josep Maria Bartomeu resigned last October.
