Joy in the streets of Barcelona


In an open topped bus bearing the word “Tricampeones”, the League, Cup and Champions League winners paraded through the streets of Barcelona, welcomed by thousands of supporters.

Wearing a special shirt with the words ‘Copa, Liga y Champions' and the names of the all the members of the squad on the back, the champions paraded through several of the main streets of Barcelona as they wended their way towards the Camp Nou. The procession began at about seven o’clock.

Cups on show

The most striking image was that of the three trophies won this amazing year, the Liga, the Copa del Rey and the Champions league, which took pride of place at the front of the bus. A great chance to share the treble with the adoring masses.

Flags and scarves

One of the most memorable moments was when Leo Messi and kit-man Chema Corbella appeared wearing Guardia Urbana and Mossos de Esquadra police hats.

Balconies decked out

Passeig Colón, Vía Laietana and Plaça Universitat were especially rampant, but the area where most people congregated was the city’s hub, Plaça Catalunya. Everywhere the bus went there were shows of unconditional support for the team and its colours. There was even one banner in French which said “Eto'o, Africa simply says thank you”.
