    The away kit shorts are yellow with a thin red line down each side
    For the first time in its history, FC Barcelona will be wearing an away kit based on the red and yellow of the Catalan flag – the ‘senyera’ The away kit shorts are red with a thin red line down each side

    For the first time in its history, FC Barcelona will be wearing an away kit based on the red and yellow of the Catalan flag – the ‘senyera’. The shirt has a round neck, with red markings and echoes the design of the first team kit, bit with red and yellow striopes and with the stripes petering out on the sleeves. The Club motto - ‘Més que un Club- appears on the back of the collar.

    Red shorts

    The away strip shorts are red with a thin yellow line down either side, like the sock, which include a red line around the top and with a similar effect below that to the shirt design.

    Both the first team and away kits have a more athletic and dynamic fit thanks to the innovative programme led by Nike of scanning the bodies of some of the world’s best players to produce a design better fitted to their anatomy.

    Catalunya Turisme Fans
    On their six day trip to Catalonia, they all agreed that the Camp Nou Experience was one of the most unforgettable highlights The winners of the Catalunya Turisme competition visited the FC Barcelona facilities on Wednesday to enjoy the Camp Nou Experience, which they all described as unforgettably fantastic

    The Chinese supporters loved the FC Barcelona museum. ¨It’s very big, you can see all the cups that the club has won in its 114 years, it made me proud to support Barça” said Wang Jun, a journalism student who won the chance to come on this trip. “I am working had on my speciality and languages. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to follow my team as a professional reporter.”

    CAMP NOU EXPERIENCE


    Although this is their first time in Barcelona, these fans were already well informed about the history of FC Barcelona thanks to the Chinese version of the website at www.fcbarcelona.cn and the sports media. “The museum is like a history book that tells us about the great moments in the club’s history and how it came to be so big” they said. They were particularly interested in the photo that explains why FCB fans came to be known as ¨culés¨ (meaning ‘bums’, because of the sight, from street level, of a row of bottoms sat along the top of the terraces). ¨It is very interesting to see these old pictures that tell us about so much history. I’d heard the anecdote about the name and this picture confirms it. Very interesting!” says Li Peihuang. ¨What I liked about the museum is where it explains about La Masía and things about the youth players. I work for a college magazine. I have interviewed a lot of young sportspeople and I’m very interested in finding about the training methods used at Barça, It means we can study the successful experience of such an internationally famous football academy” says Li.

    [[CITA_1]]

    Chen Feng works in human resources, and Ma Tingxiao is a 14 year old student, and both of them said they loved the opportunity to walk on the Camp Nou pitch. “The ground is incredible, it’s the biggest in Europe” they said. “When we see the field, we can imagine what it is like for the players to run around and score goals here.”

    Now that their 6-day trip is over, the ‘star fans’ can go home with photos of such memories as the chance to touch the four Ballons d’Or won by Leo Messi: “When I get back to China, I’ll tell my Barça friends about this trip. I can tell them about Gaudí’s architecture, the atmosphere at the Camp Nou and how to make a potato omelette” says Wang Jun. “I hope to come back here one day and learn more about Catalan culture.”

    Vice president Carles Vilarrubí has given a conference on Barça, sport, culture and education at the prestigious arts festival in England Barça were invited after going down so well at similar events in Scotland and France

    25 activities in England

    Salisbury Festival attracts about 80,000 people a year. Barça’s appearance is just one of 25 activities on the Catalan part of the programme, which also includes traditional displays such as the opening concert by the Cobla de Sant Jordi and human towers by the Castellers de Vilafranca, plus more contemporary performances by the likes of the Roger Bernat and La Troba Kung-Fú companies, as well as a series of the latest Catalan language films.

    [[DES_1]]

    Catalonia has been invited to the 41st edition of the Salisbury International Arts Festival, traditionally the first of the season in the United Kingdom. It lasts for about a month and always dedicates a couple of weeks to another country. In the past, it has focused on such places as Russia, India, China and Brazil, and this year the chosen nation is Catalonia.

    ‘Barça: sport, culture and education’

    The Institut Ramon Llull has been charged with overseeing this transfer of both traditional and contemporary Catalan culture to the British Isles, which includes dance, circus acts, cinema and conferences focused on the Catalan identity. It was within this context that the vice president of the FC Barcelona institutional area, Carles Vilarrubí, presented on Tuesday evening a conference titled ‘Barça: sport, culture and education’, on the bond between Barça and the Catalan identity, and the values and features that make the Club so unique.

    His talk, which was followed by a question and answer session, was given in front of a full house of some 150 people, all of whom demonstrated an extraordinary knowledge of both football and Barça. As the FC director said, “it was a very heterogeneous audience, but they were united by an interest in Catalan culture and politics, as well as the peculiarities of Barça, from La Masia to the democratic way that the members govern the club’s affairs”.

    Exceptionally matchless

    Vilarrubí’s talk was similar to those he gave previously in Glasgow and the new Sorbonne on occasion of the team’s matches against Celtic and PSG and in accordance with the agreement between FC Barcelona and the Institut Ramon Llull to work together in the projection of Catalan culture abroad. “We were surprised by the success of the conferences at universities in Glasgow and France. Because of that, we have been invited to appear in other places”, said Vilarrubí to www.fcbarcelona.cat.

    So, exceptionally and at no cost to the Club, the vice president accepted the invitation to attend the prestigious Ageas Salisbury International Arts Festival despite it not coinciding with any first team match. And he considered both this and the year of work in conjunction with the Institut Ramon Llull to have been an extraordinary success. “It is highly satisfactory to parade the Club’s image and its links with the country around Europe” he commented.

    Èxit d'audiència al Youtube de la presentació de Neymar
    The live broadcast of the welcome that the Camp Nou gave to the Brazilian generated more than 1.6 million views The peak audience of 180,000 people, twice the capacity of the stadium, watched Neymar appear on the field for the first time as an FCB player There was a notable increase in traffic on the FC Barcelona website, which was 151.06% up on the previous Monday

    Increase in followers

    Neymar’s arrival has also sparked a major increase in the number of followers of the different FC Barcelona social networks. Instagram gained 11,095 followers, Facebook increased by 30% more than it would do usually, and there were 13,588 new subscriptions to the Barça YouTube channel.

    On Monday, FC Barcelona’s website, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Tencent Weibo and Facebook provided extensive coverage of Neymar’s first day at the club. The response from users was remarkable, and the live YouTube broadcast of the event was one of the most watched of the year on the channel.

    The 3 hours and 45 minutes of coverage of Neymar’s presentation produced 1,623,133 views, making it the most watched live event of the year on FC Barcelona’s YouTube channel.

    Peak as Neymar took to the pitch

    The peak viewing figures on YouTube came at 18.19, the time when Neymar appeared at the Camp Nou and was welcomed by 56,000 spectators inside the stadium.

    It was also at this moment that the most comments were made on Twitter, 162,000, using the keywords Neymar, #Neymarfcb and @Njr92. Throughout the day, there were 660,000 mentions. The hashtag #Neymar soon became a global Trending Topic, as did #NeymarFCB in Spain.

    Neymar’s arrival coincided with the set-up of the club’s Portuguese Twitter account (www.twitter.com/fcbarcelona_br), the eighth language version that Barça can now offer on one of the biggest social networks in the world.

    Increased web traffic

    The FC Barcelona website (with versions in Catalan, Spanish, English, Chinese, French, Arabic, Indonesian and Japanese) was also much busier than normal due to the interest aroused by Neymar. The audience was 151.06% higher than it is on a normal Monday, with 671,718 single users (205.3% more than usual). No fewer than 3,363,655 pages were visited, of which 52% were related with Neymar content.

    There were more visits for Neymar’s presentation than there had been for the day that his transfer was announced (2,974,137), partly because of the large amount of audiovisual content generated by the player’s first day at the club and which was made available on the club’s many different official channels

The fact that an important Club like Barça have made this decision fills us with pride, we like it a lot and it makes us give thanks from the bottom of our hearts. This is an act of service for the country. The essence of Barça is sport, the city and the country. They are a great ambassador”

    During the ceremony, Rosell declared: “seeing that the away kit has four stripes [the senyera] we wanted to offer it up to the Govern of our country and to President Artur Mas.” He continued: “The first uniform is more classic and the second, for the first time, will carry the flag of our country, the senyera. We aren’t the first, but we want to be part of the 1714 300-year anniversary, which is next year.” The FC Barcelona president also said that he’s pleased with how well the new kits have been received.
