Thousands of supporters have gathered to enjoy the wide range of activities being laid on in the build-up to tonight’s final in Madrid

The Barça Fanzone in Madrid, where the team is playing the Copa del Rey Final this evening at 9.30pm CET, has been a humungous success.

The place has been buzzing all day, reaching its peak at around five to six o’clock, when as many as 12,00 people were there to enjoy the host of different activities being laid on.

There has been live music and dancing to enjoy all day, along with all kinds of games for the young and not-so-young.

FC Barcelona first vice-president Jordi Cardoner was thoroughly impressed when he paid a visit this morning, saying that “Barça deserve to win this cup. We’re optimistic, but in a moderate way, because we’ve obviously got a huge amount of respect for Sevilla.”
