On Sunday, Barcelona’s men won their first league title since 2019. The ladies had previously won the title a few weeks before.
On Monday, about 80,000 fans flocked to the streets of Barcelona to celebrate the club’s men’s and women’s league wins in Spain.
Players from both teams marched around the Catalan capital in open buses, greeting supporters who sung and waved flags while pyrotechnics and confetti were put off.
The men’s squad players donned T-shirts that said “La Liga is ours.” “And the future.” The women hoisted a banner that said, “We play together, we win together.”
During the three-hour procession, striker Robert Lewandowski, who scored twice in Sunday’s triumph over Espanyol, demonstrated some of his dancing skills on top of the bus.
“I’ve never experienced anything like this,” said Ronald Araujo, a defender. “I hope to have many more opportunities like this.”
