The FCBEscola continues its international expansion and will be coming to Oceania for the first time as part of a project to be jointly implemented with the company 'BCN Sport Service', the Club's partner in Canada. The project will consist of the organisation of 12 FCBCamps, this first year alone, in Australia and New Zealand, the first of which is coming in April.
The purpose of this expansion is to spread FC Barcelona's methodology and values to the children of Oceania, guaranteeing them quality sports training under the guidance of coaches linked to the Club.
The project was approved after a visit last January made by FCBEscola members to Australia and New Zealand.
Last January the FC Barcelona Board also approved the creation of two new FCBEscolas in Canada, in the cities of Edmonton and Toronto, another step towards carrying out the Club's strategy for growth, which includes the introduction of new FCBEscoles all around the world.
These schools, which include a total of about 300 students each, will be added to the one in Vancouver, the first to be created in Canada. With the creation of these new schools, the Club will now have 19 FCBEscoles on five continents.
