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.

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!

 

Catalan Christmas Party

Christmas is coming and the Catalan Community Christmas Party is back!

There will be Castells, Christmas Carols, Ball de Bastons, free Hot Chocolate and nibbles for everybody, Quina (a sort of Christmas Bingo) and more surprises!

Feel free to invite friends and colleagues. Everyone is welcome.

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.

BBQ Summer Party!

Come and joins us for the summer BBQ party next Sunday! 

Party will start at 18h and end 19h30, followed by the match against Real Betis (20h).

PBL members will be treated to free food and drinks.  
Non members are also welcome, and can join on the day to take the free food and drinks offer.
