Blaugranagram is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with FC Barcelona over a collaborative effort.

FC Barcelona are facing Real Sociedad this coming Wednesday, and the game will see Blaugranagram’s CEO, Omar Hawwash, guest the club’s Live Match Center and Barca TV+, following an agreement between the two entities.

The agreement comes with regards to the club’s highly anticipated encounter with Real Sociedad, who currently top the LaLiga table, with a narrow gap in goal difference giving the Basque side the edge over Atlético Madrid in second. Meanwhile, Barcelona are eighth in the league standings, and, following a 1-0 victory away against Levante, will be looking to get back to winning form in the league.

The agreement

For the game, the Catalan club will as always have live coverage of the match on its live Match Center, streamed on all social media platforms, including YouTube. Moreover, post-game analysis will take place on the club’s exclusive online platform, Barça TV+.

For the pre-match and post-match coverage, as well as the half-time analysis, Blaugranagram’s chief editor, Omar Hawwash, has once again been invited to give his take, this time for the Catalans’ encounter against leaders Real Sociedad at the Camp Nou.

Hawwash will be guesting shortly before the game starts, and at half-time, on the club’s live Match Center. After the game, he will join the Match Center crew for their post-game analysis on Barça TV+.

The game kicks off at 9:00 P.M. local time.

This is not the first time the parties formally collaborate, with recent cameos having taken place for Barcelona’s encounter with Deportivo Alavés as well as the Champions League quarter-final tie of last season with Bayern Munich.


The game will undoubtedly be special for a certain Barcelona player: Antoine Griezmann. The player formed a lethal duo with Carlos Vela during his spell in San Sebástian. Griezmann spent his youth years at the Basque club, having played with them since 2005, when he moved from French side Maconnais to Real Sociedad’s youth team.

Since then, he made his way up the club’s ranks, and got promoted from the club’s reserve team to the first team in 2009. From there, he spent five years with the first team, setting the league alight, scoring 52 goals and setting up another 18 in 202 appearances, before making the switch to Atlético Madrid in 2014. In 2019, he made his move to Barcelona, a year after a documentary named ‘La Decisión’ aired, in which he made it clear that he would stay in Atlético amid rumors of him leaving for fellow LaLiga side Barcelona.

This game is very much a homecoming for the 29-year-old French forward, and mixed feelings will indeed be present. Although the game will be without fans in the stands, it will be a fiery encounter with a lot at stake for both sides.
