The players trained at St. George's Park two years ago - MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

On Monday, it was announced that FC Barcelona would be returning to St. George’s Park during this summer’s pre-season from 25 to 30 July.

The team thoroughly enjoyed their time at the English Football Association’s complex back in 2014, Luis Enrique’s first pre-season as manager.

From then on, the team went on to record a historic season, earning the second treble of the club’s history. Below is an inside look at the last time Barça trained in Birmingham:

The start of the team's stay in England

Day 1 - 28/07/14

Barça completed their first day at the training camp in England. It was an intense day, which saw the team depart from Barcelona and arrive in Birmingham two hours later. The team then trained in St. George’s Park. It was the first session with all three of the new keepers for the 2014/15 season: Ter Stegen, Bravo and Masip.
