Su Xing gets ready to enjoy The Clásico

The last night of the eight-day holiday break for the National Day of the People’s Republic of China coincided with the big game at the Camp Nou and Barça’s Chinese fans were able to enjoy a great game of football after a relaxing week. Hundreds of Chinese fans came together in the early hours of October 8th in the Loading Lounge Bar,  whose owner is a special Barça fan –the famous singer—Su Xing.

Su Xing – famous Barça fan

Su Xing is a Chinese singer, composer and actor who came second in the 2007 Super Boy competition, a programme run by Hunan TV for young Chinese singers. He is also a big Barça fan and he invited  the members of the Penya Gran Muralla China to his bar to enjoy The Clásico. Since he first became a Barça fan at the beginning of this decade, Su Xing has followed the team from Ronaldinho to Messi and he explained: “our society is becoming more commercial every day and football is too, but Barça’s unique culture makes them stand out from other Clubs. Their dedication to every small detail, their control and their pursuit of perfection are what make me love the Club so much”.  The singer was also thrilled to have the Penya with him to see the game: “it’s great to watch a Clásico with so many other Barça fans in my bar. I’ve enjoyed it so much and I know the others have too”.

La Penya Gran Muralla, home for Chinese Barça fans

La Penya Gran Muralla China was set up in 1995 by five expat Catalans and it now has 200 official members. One of the club’s directors, Jordi Sitjas Güell explained: “a Clásico is always important in football terms and this year with the political climate at home even more so. The Catalans here in China and the Chinese Barça fans all enjoyed the game together”.
