To be considered a presidential candidate, all hopefuls need the signature approval of at least 2,257 members and to present a guaranteed payment of at least €124.2m to be considered for the vacant position of president.
The candidates are all pledging different commitments with the return of individuals such as Xavi Hernandez at the heart of many campaigns.
