The team’s plane, originally destined for Pamplona, took off at 11.00. However, the weather conditions, more specifically, the heavy blanket of fog covering the Navarran city forced Barça’s plane to divert to Vitoria. The plane landed without problems at 12.20, despite the heavy fog. From Vitoria, they travelled to Pamplona, where the team will play the away leg of the King’s Cup tie, by coach. The team arrived to their hotel at 13.45.
