Media Release: Merchant Square hosts Celtic Barca fanzone

Merchant Square

MERCHANT Square in Merchant City, the heart of Glasgow’s cultural, fashion and food quarter, is hosting a special Celtic Barça Fanzone on Wednesday 7th November.

More than 500 Barcelona fans will be bussed directly to Merchant Square, where they will be piped into the heated Victorian courtyard.

Live entertainment for both sets of fans to enjoy in the lead up to the big match will include a ceilidh with a traditional Scottish band, a Catalan translator, DJ and a traditional Catalan group.

The fun kicks-off at 12 noon, with the match itself shown on Merchant Square’s giant screen at 7.45 pm.

Jenni Morrison, at Merchant Square, said: “Merchant Square is the place to be for any Celtic or Barça fan fortunate enough to find themselves in Glasgow on Wednesday.

“Celtic FC and Barcelona FC enjoy a friendly relationship and Merchant Square will ensure a fantastic party atmosphere on the day – we’re definitely the place to be to watch the match if you don’t have a ticket!”

In addition to Hoopy the Celtic Mascot being in attendance, the Square’s big screen will be showing old Celtic v Barcelona matches in the run up to the match, while Merchant Square will be decorated throughout with FC Barcelona and Catalan flags.

Located on Candleriggs in the city centre, Merchant Square in Merchant City is home to a cosmopolitan selection of bars and restaurants, all set within a covered courtyard – where it never rains.
