Barça fans that make it to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday will be received in Catalan. The doors that give access to the stadium reserved for FC Barcelona members and Barça Supporters Clubs will be greeted by a banner that will read ‘Visitants Catalans’ (Catalan visitors). Announcements made over the stadium’s PA system will also be in Catalán.

FC Barcelona also receives fans from opposing teams in the Champions League at the Camp Nou in similar fashion. The doors, 46, 50, 51 and 52, of the Catalan stadium reserved for visiting fans greet the opposing team’s supporters with banners in their native language.
