Experience more than just FC Barcelona or RCD Espanyol. Get to know where the real passion is!
Get ready to experience the other side of football, where true passion lies, far away from the spotlight and the influence of modern football. If you want to get a grasp of the true Catalan football culture, then this is for you. A football club that will not only entertain you from the sporting side but will teach you about this city’s identity and history. It is said that football is a mirror of society, and you’ll understand this in a matchday experience at the Narcis Sala stadium.
Unio Esportiva Sant Andreu is one of the most popular clubs in the Catalan underground football culture. It has a long history of ups and downs in the lower leagues of the Spanish football competition and has become a cult club for many because of its values, it’s culture and most importantly it’s fans. You’ll be amazed when meeting people from all over the world in the stands. Football shirts from different clubs and even chants with song rhythms from iconic bands.
Sant Andreu currently sits on the Third Division of Spanish Football (4th tier) and was on the brink of promotion last season so the stakes this year are as high as never. Most games are due at 18.00 with another couple at 12.00 which means perfect timing to meet beforehand, show you the magnificent neighbourhood of Sant Andreu, grab a pre-match beer while I share with you every detail of this clubs’ history before we head to the ground.
Football is a celebration, no matter the result, and food and beers are always there to accompany a good match of football! That’s why, after the match, be it midday or afternoon, I will take you to a local restaurant nearby so you can also get a taste of the Catalan traditional cuisine. A complete meal included in the price of the Day tour.
