Barcelona Football Club on Thursday evening expressed their heartfelt condolences to the families of victims of the terror blasts that hit the city.
About 13 people were confirmed dead on Thursday when a driver deliberately slammed a van into crowds on Barcelona’s most popular street in what police said was a “terror attack”.
The attack left the world in shock at another senseless attack by terror groups, and FC Barcelona released a statement Thursday evening on how they intend to honour the victims.
“FC Barcelona wants to express its profound sorrow and utter disgust at the terrorist attack that has hit the heart of our city, la Rambla de Barcelona,” a statement on the club’s reads.
“The Club wishes to send our support and thoughts to the victims, their families and friends as well as the people of Barcelona and its visitors.”
Barcelona begin the 2017/18 La Liga season against Betis on Sunday. The Camp Nou will hold a minute silence in recognition and memory of the victims.
“As a mark of respect, the flags will fly at half-mast at the Club’s installations and the players from both teams will wear black armbands in all the Club’s matches this weekend.”
