“The entire world is watching,” said Josep Guardiola during the pre-clásico press conference on Tuesday, and the FC Barcelona manager is right. A total of 450 accredited professionals (journalists, photographers, television crews, technicians, etc) will converge on the Camp Nou to broadcast the Clásico between Barça and Real Madrid.

120 accredited media outlets, representing 27 countries, will be at the stadium for the match. The press outlets are from the following countries: Spain, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Netherlands, United States, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Chile, Venezuela, Japan, Turkey, Qatar, Lebanon, Algeria, and Morocco. Of the accredited media outlets, 76 are print press, 22 are news agencies, 20 are television stations, and 2 are radio stations. In effect, it’s a gathering of international press for match that garners worldwide interest.
