Barcelona

More than a club. We get to the heart of one of the most iconic clubs in the world by interviewing journalists about its unique history and how its fans are different to anywhere else in the world.

Castellers Penya

A castel is a human tower unique to Catalonia. We meet up with a group of Castellers that make up Barcelona’s most unique fan group.

Espanyol breakfast

Espanyol have always lived in the shadow of their famous city rivals Barcelona, but they are just as much a part of the city. One fan takes us through what it means to support the smaller side while preparing us a traditional Catalan breakfast.

Casual Football

In a city as trendy as Barcelona, it should come as no surprise that even casual football is cool. Layla and Jonny pay a visit to the latest craze in Barca where people can just turn up for a game.
