Students from a total of 20 FCBEscolas have congratulated FC Barcelona on its 117th anniversary. The messages of congratulations have spread from the schools that the Club has in Asia, Africa, Europe and America in different languages: Japanese, Chinese, English, Arabic, Turkish, Polish, Russian, Brazilian and Catalan.
Those who have stayed up the latest to express their congratulations were the students of the school of Katsushika, Japan. Starring in the video was nine-year-old Koshiro Yamashita, who last year sang the Barça hymn before the Club World Cup.
Other congratulations have been more choral, such as those made by the school in Mumbai (India), where the chants sung by most of the athletes of the various development stages, ranging from six to 18 years. There was also a more visual congratulatory message where players formed the letters FCB, as was the case of FCBEscola Florida (United States), and forming the number 117, as the boys and girls of Charlotte (United States) did.
FC Barcelona has a total of 23 FCBEscolas throughout the world, more than 160 campuses and 50 annual camps, with a presence in more than 50 countries across the five continents and the participation of more than 30,000 children among the different activities promoted from the FCBEscola. In the coming weeks, two more FCBEscolas will be opened in Lagos (Nigeria) and in Guatemala City (Guatemala).
