To escape the war and, at the same time, obtain funds for the organisation’s lamentable finances, Barça set out on a tour of Mexico and the United States. Some of the team’s players never returned to Barcelona.

The team was received in Mexico in the summer of 1937 as an ambassador of democracy and liberty.
