El Clasico Begins With Over 90,000 Singing The Barca Anthem A Cappella

“Tot el camp…” *clap* *clap* *clap*

As is customary, FC Barcelona walked out to "El Cant del Barça" during Wednesday's Copa del Rey semifinal first leg against Real Madrid. But due to the significance of the occasion — what with it being an El Clásico semifinal — the accompanying music was turned off and the anthem was sung a cappella. 

Wednesday night's announced attendance was 92,008, so the result was staggering.

Here are the Barcelona anthem lyrics courtesy of Barcelona.com: 

Tot el camp

És un clam

Som la gent blaugrana

Tant se val d’on venim

Si del sud o del nord

Ara estem d’acord

Estem d’acord

Una bandera ens agermana

Blaugrana al vent

Un crit valent

Tenim un nom el sap tothom

BARÇA BARÇA BAAAAARÇA!

Jugadors

Seguidors

Tots units fem força

Són molts anys plens d’afanys

Són molts gols que hem cridat

I s’ha demostrat s’ha demostrat

Que mai ningú no ens podrà tòrcer

Blaugrana al vent

Un crit valent

Tenim un nom el sap tothom

BARÇA BARÇA BAAAAARÇA!

And the English translation of the Barcelona anthem lyrics: 

The whole stadium

loudly cheers

We’re the blue and claret supporters

It matters not where we hail from

Whether it's the south or the north

Now we all agree, we all agree,

One flag unites us in brotherhood. 

Blue and claret blowing in the wind

One valiant cry

We’ve got a name that everyone knows: 

Barça, Barça, Baaarça!

Players, Supporters

United we are strong.

We’ve achieved much over the years,

We’ve shouted many goals

And we have shown, we have shown,

That no one can ever break us.

Blue and claret blowing in the wind

One valiant cry

We’ve got a name that everyone knows:

Barça, Barça, Baaarça!
