Indonesian fans watch FC Barcelona players train

The open-doors training session was a gift to the supporters in Jakarta The players posed for photos and signed autographs for everybody

Marc Carmona’s squad trained twice on Thursday in the Tennis Indoor Stadium, the venue for the futsal team’s games in Indonesia. But the evening session was the most special, for it was open for fans in the Indonesian capital to come along and enjoy.

Lucky fans

Some fifty supporters sat in the stands to watch as the players prepared for Friday’s game with Malaysian outfit Felda FC. And the fans celebrated each goal, even though it was only in a practice match, as if it had been scored in the UEFA Futsal Cup Final. The Barça anthem was sung over and over in an atmosphere that was beyond anything that the players had expected to encounter.

Photos and autographs

Once the session was over, the fans were allowed down to the court to speak to the players, get their autographs, take photos, and even enjoy an impromptu kickaround. It truly was a remarkable day in Jakarta for the futsal stars.
