On Tuesday, the Camp Nou received a visit from pop group One Direction, who are appearing at the Olympic Stadium tonight as part of their Where we are world tour. Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan, two members of the world famous boyband, were welcomed into the presidential lounge by Dídac Lee, the director of the Media and Communication Department and manager of New Technologies, who presented them with first team shirts with their names on the back.
They immediately donned the shirts and headed out onto the pitch for a kickaround, stopping on the way to take pictures in the first team locker-room.
Clearly enjoying the experience, they ran out of the tunnel onto the field, where they made it clear that they know what they are doing with a football at their feet. In fact, Tomlinson has previously played for the Doncaster Rovers reserves in England. The visitors enjoying the Camp Nou Tour were thrilled to enjoy this additional treat, and furiously took pictures, applauded and even sung some of One Direction’s most famous hits
The band members also signed a shirt with the name of the group, which will be used as a prize for a Barça Fans draw.
