KOBE, Japan — Once the FC Barcelona first team wrapped up their afternoon training session on Thursday at the Kobe Universiade Memorial Stadium, they were joined on the field by some familiar faces.
The Barça rugby team, also in Japan during this 2019 summer tour, posed alongside the first team in a historic photo that was reminiscent of one taken last summer in the United States, when the Barça Women’s team joined the first team for the first two legs of the four-stop tour.
This summer, the Barça rugby team have come along on tour coinciding with the coming Rugby World Cup, to be held in Japan this fall. While here, the rugby team is scheduled to take part in several events, along with daily training sessions, to help FC Barcelona bring attention to its multi-sports nature.
