La Liga and BeIn Sports, with the support of FC Barcelona, have organized an event on the roof terrace of 230 Fifth Avenue, New York where more than 3,000 fans are expected to enjoy the Clásico between Real Madrid and Barça.
The space will boast a giant screen to follow the game, an interactive zone in which fans will be able to experience the feeling of being at Camp Nou as well as live music and the presence of Catalan sportsmen and women, actors and representatives of various Catalan institutions in the USA.
FC Barcelona will have their own designated area and roses and books will be given as gifts in an initiative with the Catalan Regional Government to help publicize the day of ‘Sant Jordi’, the celebration of Catalonia’s patron saint which coincides with the date of the Clásico.
The fans who attend the event on 5th Avenue will be able to take photos with the Champions League, League and Copa del Rey trophies as well as in front of a mural of the Barça players.
The Club’s representative at the event will be Gianluca Zambrotta, the Italian having been a Barça player for two seasons.
