Football Club Barcelona

Football Club Barcelona – More than a club!

When Messi and Neymar’s magic has started spreading its charm on football fans for their performances in World Cup 2014, let’s look inside the club FC Barcelona – the club where both Messi and Neymar play! (For those of you who prefer soccer, FC stands for Football club!)

Football is like a festival

It was during the European Championships in 2012, I felt the enthusiasm of Europeans for football. I have seen here in Switzerland, almost all households (on their balcony) display a flag of the country which they support. Sometimes I have seen more than one flag as well, hinting at split loyalties! During the football match, after each and every goal I heard the vuvuzelas blaring from the balconies. They also burst crackers after winning. Football is like a festival and they celebrate it. Naturally, when I landed at the airport to spend a few days in Barcelona, visiting the Camp Nou Stadium of FCB topped the priority list.

The Camp Nou Stadium of FCB

The pictures below show a lovely and vigorous sculpture of a footballer in action, the Camp Nou stadium from outside, the logo of FCB and their slogan “Mes que un club” i.e “More than a club”.

In the stadium premise, there is an excellent sculpture of Laszlo Kubala
– A Hungarian footballer and a leading member of the successful Barcelona team in the 1950s.

Museum inside FCB

Like the Real Madrid Club, FCB too has a grand museum. Large interactive screens to know about their 100 year legacy and trophies they have won are a significant part of the experience. A large area where one can see different well played matches on gigantic screens is amazing.

Tip: Here is a perfect Barcelona itinerary for you.

Inside Football Club Barcelona

In the picture on the right, I am standing in front of a photograph of the Camp Nou Stadium of FCB – about which, I am going to write in my next post. I will write about the player’s tunnel, their dressing room and the press room along with snaps of these places. For those who are like me (not a football fanatic), would surely love to read about the stadium like I did during the tour.

For soccer lovers, Camp Nou of FCB is a Duomo or Mecca of football. A few words in the comments section below from my readers are most welcome and highly encouraged! Cheers!

  1. No, I can't say that I'm a genuine sports fanatic of any kind. American football is the closest thing, but just to the extent that I rarely miss any of our Atlanta Falcons games on TV. Okay, so maybe I glue myself to the set while they're playing. And cheer a lot. Groan a lot, and it's entirely possible that I go nuts when they win. Okay, so maybe I am a bit of a fanatic…

  2. I think no matter if you're a football fanatic or not, it's so much fun to visit these places. And take photographs. They are quite spectacular!
