Meet and Greet the Wigan squad in Barca

Join your fellow Wigan Warriors supporters and the Wigan Warriors squad

In Barcelona on Friday ahead of Saturday’s historic clash at the Camp Nou?

Come and join your fellow Wigan Warriors supporters and the Wigan Warriors squad and share a drink with us. We’re calling on all Warriors fans who are in Barcelona to join us in the Plaça Reial, a square in the Barri Gòtic area of the city on Friday between 2-4pm for a meet-and-greet with the travelling Warriors squad and backroom staff ahead of the game on Saturday.

How to get there

The Plaça Reial sits just off La Rambla, one of the busiest and most popular areas for tourists in the entire city (see map).

The Liceu Metro stop is the closest form of public transport to the square and is just a couple of minutes walk away. The Liceu stop is part of the L3 metro line. Plaça Reial is also just seven minutes walk (North-West) from the Columbus Monument, which sits at the far (South-West) end of La Rambla.

The Head Coach

Wigan Warriors Head Coach, Adrian Lam: “The dedication and loyalty our fans show us on a weekly basis is a constant source of inspiration for our group. 

"This week thousands of Wigan supporters have gone even further by parting with their hard-earned cash to support the team in Barcelona. 

"The investment that they have made travelling out to Barcelona is valued by all us here at the Warriors, so we’re looking forward to meeting them in Barcelona on Friday in one of the world’s most beautiful cities ahead of what promises to be a memorable weekend of rugby league.”
