The Barça Fan Zone in the Madri-Río district, adjacent to the Matadero Park, just two kilometers from the Vicente Calderón, opened up at 10:00 this morning. The atmosphere has been fantastic from the first minute, but the real party started at noon when most of the fans from Barcelona arrived to the designated Fan Zone area.

The supporters were visited by FC Barcelona vice-president Jordi Cardoner and the chief of the Social Commission Pau Vilanova, both of whom are responsible for the Club’s Social Area, as well as director general Antoni Rossich.

Athletic and Barça fans enjoy a day in Madrid

Barça’s Fan Zone has also hosted a good number of Athletic Club fans that didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity greet their Catalan counterparts. At the same time, many Barça fans made their way to the Athletic Hiria (Athletic City), located four kilometers away from the Barça Fan Zone, to do the same.

The Barça fans enjoyed concerts and different recreational activities at the Fan Zone. Furthermore, there is also an information booth and an official store where fans and members can buy, for example, the Copa del Rey Final commemorative shirt.

It’s worth noting that the Fan Zone will close at 19:30, two hours and a half before kickoff.
