PBL at the EditorsTap for LaLigaUK organised event

Penya Blaugrana London attended the event organised by LaLiga UK at the Editors Tap in London to witness the beating of RCD Espanyol in the first match of the Xavi era.

Fantastic atmosphere among the Barça fans, and let it be the first step on the road to greatness!

PBL in FourFourTwo

Penya Blaugrana London featured in FourFourTwo today in the run up to the match against Espanyol.  Nice article giving a little bit of an inside about the penya.

PS: although the article got a few things wrong, we are not a Spanish penya!

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.

Bar&Co is back!  

The penya resumed its duties in style after lockdown with a 4-0 win against Athletic to win the Copa del Rei 2021 title.
