The 80 youngsters that have resided at La Masia this year posed for a photo session in front of the emblematic building at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper
La Masia was the venue today for the traditional end-of-season photo of the young FC Barcelona sportspeople that have been living there this year. A total of 80 youngsters assembled at La Masia in the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper in front of the emblematic building that has been their home for the last year. Until two years ago, the picture was always taken outside the old Masia next to the Camp Nou, and although the base is now the modern Ciutat Esportiva, the custom has been maintained.
There were 80 residents in the photo this time - 57 footballers, 13 basketball players, 2 roller hockey players, 5 handball players and 3 futsal players. A large number of these are from Catalonia (24), followed by Cameroon (9), Valencia (9) and Andalusia (8). The remainder come from all kinds of places, such as Andorra, England, Argentina, Asturias, Korea, Ecuador, France, Galicia, Greece, Holland, the Balearic Island, the Canary Islands, Madrid, Morocco, Montenegro, Nigeria, the Basque Country, Paraguay, the Czech Republic, Aragon, Senegal and Sweden.
