FC Barcelona begin their tour of the United States on July 19. Though there are still seven days left, the team are pumped and ready to offer a footballing spectacle in a territory that’s well known to them.
With Ernesto Valverde now in charge, Barça will make their debut in the International Champions Cup of North America (ICC) against Juventus in New York (July 22), and then face Manchester United in Washington D.C. (July 26).
A mouth-watering El Clásico against Real Madrid will take place in Miami on July 29, concluding the tour.
Meanwhile, the squad are back in training after their summer break and are getting themselves fit and ready for the rigours that await them in North America. The players have answered a questionnaire as to which of their peers resemble the icons of the United States and have also been tested with a basketball. Watch the video!
