On Tuesday evening, the London supporters’ clubs made the English capital a little bit more blaugrana. On the mark of the first leg of the Champions League Semifinals with Chelsea, the culés residing in the Thames city celebrated a Barça colour dinner.

Josep M. Barnils, director of the Social Comission and responsible for the foreign penyes was FC Barcelona representative on this event. About 70 people went to Bar&Co, the penya headquarters, which is a boat on the river waters, to make Barça where the Guardiola team was crowned as European champions last year.

New president of the penya Eduard Mañas welcomed with satisfaction the FC Barcelona delegation, as well as the other supporters clubs representatives that travelled to the United Kingdom the day before the match. Now, the blaugrana events are still on with a Barça fans gathering at Trafalgar Square on Wednesday afternoon which will be attended by Josep M. Barnils and chief directon of the Social Comission Pau Vilanova will also be there. The activities will follow until kick off at Stamford Bridge.
