Welcome to Penya Blaugrana London!

Welcome to Penya Blaugrana London (PB London), the home of London Barça fans.

PB London, as an official Penya, is committed to participate and assist FC Barcelona in activities in the London area, such as Champions League matches against London teams. PB London is also committed to promote FC Barcelona historical values of social integration, civic responsability, respect, tolerance, sportsmanship, solidarity, fair play, democracy and catalanity.

Statement for the FCB World Penyes Federation Elections

Penya Blaugrana London will be supporting the candidacy headed by Toni Freire, Stronger Together.

Toni has presented a clear and solid program that he has defended in many debates and interviews.  Toni has been transparent and open, and always ready to explain and clarify any points from his program.  We are comfortable he and his team will deliver on their promises, and they will continue the good work of improving the international penya movement.

On the other hand, we have serious credibility and preparedness concerns with the candidacy headed by Nicolas Fayet, so much so that in our opinion this candidacy could damage the Federation and the international penya movement.  We therefore oppose it strongly and ask all penyes to do the same.

Mr Fayet is planning to spend vast amounts of Federation money, but when challenged his reply has always been that he does not need to explain, we just need to “trust him”.   This bizarre attitude shows lack of preparedness and raises serious concerns of credibility and possible financial mismanagement.

Mr Fayet candidacy is also full of populistic promises that sound good in paper, but are either unrealistic, unsustainable, or only targeted at penya presidents.  Examples are hiring Camp Nou for a penyes football match, all penyes to receive a Messi signed shirt every year, or VIP tickets.  Once again, when challenged during the debates he has rejected explaining how these promises would be fulfilled.

We are also concerned at the lack of transparency from Mr Fayet candidacy, as he will not reveal his team until after the elections. We find the motives behind this decision worrying, and we believe go against the democratic values of our club, as it denies penyes the right to know who they vote for.

Penya Blaugrana London post match interview in Barça TV

Penya Blaugrana London featured in Barça TV for the last match of the season.  We talked about the current season, the Champions league to be played in August, the future, and also about our summer BBQ and how we continued watching FC Barcelona together during the pandemic.

 

PBL "After Lock Down" Summer BBQ Party

Penya Blaugrana London celebrated its traditional summer BBQ party for the last match of the season in a very untraditional way given all the COVID-19 restrictions.
After the hardships of COVID-19, and now that the country starts to slowly get back to some sense of normality, we think it would be nice to have a "socially distant" get together to thank our members for their support during the season (and see the back of a forgettable La Liga season)

As usual, the BBQ will be free of charge for our members, with thanks to Bar&Co for subsidising half the price!

 

Free Membership Renewal for all members!

PBL ANNOUNCEMENT

We hope you and your families are keeping safe during these difficult times. We know many people have experienced extreme hardships during these last couple of months, and while we now start to come out of lockdown, we are still months away from any sense of normality.

We would like to announce that the renewal fee for the 2020-21 season has been CANCELLED. This means that all existing members will be automatically renewed FOR FREE on 31 August 2020 for the 2020-21 season, unless they explicitly decline to renew by emailing us. The board considers this is in the best interest of all members, and in line with the values of solidarity during these exceptional times, as the last thing members should be worrying about right now is their renewal.

Second, our penya base Bar&Co is currently closed due to the UK lockdown, and once is able to re-open in July, there will be very limited capacity to maintain social distancing guidelines. So we will need to be patient until everything gets back to normal. We will keep you updated on this.

We hope to see all of you there!

BBQ Summer party

PBL members enjoyed a glorious summer day in London for the BBQ party, with plenty of food and drinks, followed by a well deserved 5-2 victory against Betis with two goals of Griezmann.

We were delighted to see so many La Masia promises too. Carles Perez scored a fantastic goal, and Anssumane Fati debuted at the tender age of 16, the youngest player to debut for FCB since 1941.
