The annual Open Doors Training Session will be taking place this coming January 4 at 11.00am CET in the Miniestadi. The traditional day of seasonal festivities at the club (remember that unlike many other parts of the world, Catalonia celebrates King’s Day on January 6) organised by the Barça Foundation includes the chance for for fans to watch their heroes training followed by visits by the players to local hospitals.
This year, and for the first time, the men will be joined by Fran Sánchez and his women’s team for the hospital visits.
