2nd Festa Barça

From July 31 through August 2, FC Barcelona will celebrate the 2nd Festa Barça. Coinciding with the run up to the Joan Gamper Trophy (August 2) and the XXXIV Supporters Clubs World Congress (August 1 and 2), the Club will set aside space in front of the 1899 Auditorium which will serve as a meeting point for Club members and peñistas. The Festa Barça, which is scheduled to open at 12.00 on the 31st, will have the following hours of operation: Wednesday, from 12.00 to 23.00, Thursday, from 11.00 to 23.00, and Friday, from 11.00 to 15.00.

Club members are encouraged to bring one guest, while peñistas need to register to gain access to the space.

All kinds of distractions

The Festa Barça will include a wide variety of activities. The youngsters will be able to to enjoy a chutometro (inflatable goals), the Audi zone’s Attitudes of Education Circuit and a road safety course, water slides and fútbol rápidos, among other activities. There will also be musical performances throughout the three days, in addition to a rest area for Club members and peñistas.

The FC Barcelona Foundation will also have a presence at the Festa Barça. The Foundation will organise a series of workshops dedicated to raising awareness around healthy eating habits, and there will be a tent where attendees will be able to write messages which will then be projected on a massive screen in the middle of the enclosure.

In the 1899 Auditorium, the Club will set up a giant screen which will air the four Champions League finals won by FC Barcelona in 1992, 2006, 2009 and 2011. In addition, the FCB Museum will have a display titled “The Museum that you don’t see,” where little known items and relics of Barça history will be on display to the public. There will also be chess competition, botifarra games (card game) and a PlayStation zone. Club members who what to register for the chess competition can do so here. Registration for the chess competition closes on the 29th at 15.00.

The old Masía, open to Club members and peñistas

One of the biggest attractions of this year’s Festa Barça will be the chance to visit the old Masía building. It’s worth noting that this old farmhouse, one of the most symbolic buildings in FC Barcelona history, ceased to be a home for the Barça youth system players in 2011, when the new Masía, Centro de Formación Oriol Tort, was established at the Ciutat Esportiva. Now, Club members and peñistas can visit the historic building where players like Puyol, Xavi, Valdés or Messi were taught football.
