It’s been another eventful week at FC Barcelona, with the football team launching its new kit and the announcements of the departures of both Dani Alves and Marc Bartra. Meanwhile, the season is drawing to a close in a number of different sports. Here’s a round-up of the biggest stories of the week

Wednesday 1 June. The tenth anniversary of the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper training facility, located 5 km from the Camp Nou and opened on 1 June 2006. This is where the academy players live and train, and since 2010 has also been used for first team training sessions.

- Thursday 2 June. Technical secretary Robert Fernández gives a press conference to look back at another hugely successful season, and reveals that not only will Neymar Jr be renewing his contract, but insists that the Brazilian will be staying at FC Barcelona for many more years. 

- Thursday 2 June. At the same conference, Fernández confirms that Dani Alves is leaving the club after eight seasons and 391 competitive appearances. The club officially thanks the Brazilian for all that he has done for FC Barcelona.

- Friday 3 June. Marc Bartra is leaving Barça for Borussia Dortmund. The Catalan joined Barça when he was just 12 years old, meaning that he’s spent half of his life at the club. Since making his debut with the first team, he’s amassed an enviable collection of medals, including five Ligas and two Champions Leagues.

- Saturday 4 June. Barça president Josep Maria Bartomeu goes to Benicàssim to lend his support to the U12 team in the LaLiga Promises tournament. Sadly, Barça crash out of the competition to Espanyol in the round of 16. 

- Sunday 5 June. The women’s football team lose at home to Atlético Madrid and say goodbye to their league title hopes. They’ve won the last four editions of the competition, but this season the trophy is headed to Athletic Bilbao. Hopefully better fortunes await in the Copa de la Reina. 

- Sunday 5 June. The FC Barcelona Lassa basketball team go 2-0 in their semi-final series with Laboral Kutxa Victòria. They now travel to Vitoria, where one win from a potential two games would be enough to clinch a berth in the final.
