I know Real Madrid fans say "Hala Madrid" to support the Real Madrid team.

What do F.C. Barcelona supporters say? Is there any instantly recognizable and distinctive phrase or chant, either in Spanish or in Catalan?

  • This question appears to be off-topic because it is about sporting slogans. – Flimzy Oct 15 '14 at 15:14
  • This question isn't about the Spanish language--it's about what a local team uses as their slogan/chant. – Flimzy Oct 15 '14 at 15:14

Another alternative, in catalan, and widely used is Força Barça. The chant is pronounced as "Forsa Barsa".


Barcelona F.C. supporters would prefer to say it in Catalan rather than Spanish. Their chant is

Visca Barça or Visca el Barça (which means Viva el Barça / Long live Barça)

The "ç" is pronounced /S/ Visca el Barsa

So there is not really a good answer in Spanish for your question.

If you wanted to support this or any other team in Spanish you could say.

Arriba el Barça

Viva el Barça

    "Visca Barça" is never used. It sounds bad. But "Visca el Barça" is correct. – lorddarkangel Oct 15 '14 at 5:43
  • I just edited my answer so is better suited for this site, that is dedicated to Spanish Language, and not to other languages spoken in Spain. – Diego Oct 16 '14 at 16:20
