FC Barcelona will travel to the United States on Tuesday for the first mixed tour in Club history. The teams coached by Ernesto Valverde and Fran Sánchez will be together from 24 to 29 July in the cities of Beaverton (Oregon) and Los Angeles.

In Beaverton, both teams will visit Nike’s headquarters and will participate in joint commercial activities and events. In Los Angeles, the first team will play Tottenham in the International Champions Cup (ICC), a competition organised by Relevent Sport, and they’ll also travel to the cities of Dallas and San Francisco to play against Roma and Milan, respectively. Four hours before each game there will be a Fan Zone open to the public, so the fans can get up close and personal to Barça and learn more about the Club's history and philosophy.

The Barça Women will play their first pre-season friendly match against SoCal FC, of ​​the Women's Premier Soccer League. It will be held on Saturday 28 at 10.00am in the 10,000 capacity Drake Stadium, and will see debuts for Stefanie Van der Gragt, Kheira Hamraoui, Pamela Tajonar and Andrea Pereira .

Aside from the games, there will be an intense parallel agenda of institutional events for both teams, the tour allowing the Club to take advantage of its commercial and branding strategy, as well as a social commitment which is part of the Club's identity and channeled through the Foundation.

From the point of view of the global implementation of the Barça brand, the American market remains a priority territory, and the west coast was chosen as the destination this summer as part of the Club’s Strategic Plan to generate more economic revenue.

It’s the eighth time in Barça’s history that they’ll enjoy a pre-season in the United States, and the second consecutively. Their first ever, some 81 years ago in 1937, was crucial for the survival of the Club.

Maximum institutional presence

The institutional presence of the Club will be headed by President Josep Maria Bartomeu, who will be in Portland and Los Angeles. First vice president, Jordi Cardoner, will accompany the delegation during his stay in Portland, Los Angeles and San Francisco along with vice president of sports, Jordi Mestre. Managers Jordi Moix, Maria Teixidor, Joan Bladé, Josep Ramon Vidal-Abarca and Emili Rousaud will do the whole tour, whilst Enrique Tombas and Oriol Tomàs will stay until Dallas and Dídac Lee wil only go to San Francisco.
