The Champions League final at the Arc de Triomf

Posted on 27 May 2011 in Barcelona, always!, Sports

On Saturday a giant screen will be installed near the Arc de Triomf on Passeig de Lluís Companys for a live broadcast of the Champions League final, between FC Barcelona and Manchester United.

Probably, the expected image by the Barça fans!

Probably, the expected image by the Barça fans!

Barcelona City Council has been working jointly with the Catalan Ministry of Home Affairs, Televisió de Catalunya, the newspapers El Periódico de Catalunya, La Vanguardia, Sport and Mundo Deportivo, as well as the radio stations Rac1, Ona Catalana, Ràdio Barcelona and Catalunya Ràdio, to put up the screen and, should Barça win, organise a meeting point for some festive, media-led celebrations.

Preventive measures are also being planned to ensure mobility, safety and coexistence between fans and residents by the Mossos d’Esquadra (catalan) and Guàrdia Urbana (city) police forces, and other municipal services, as usually happens when crowds gather for football matches.

As on previous occasions, it is hoped the screen will serve as a meeting point for public celebrations, where people can watch the live broadcast of the match and special programmes, linked to the world of football and Barcelona, that will be shown once the match is over, if Barça win.
