On July 19, FC Barcelona will be returning to the United States, four years after their last visit to the country. In 2011, they were in Washington DC, Miami and Dallas for three friendlies against Manchester United, Chivas Guadalajara and Club América. The players and other representatives of the club also appeared at a number of charity events featuring the likes of the Bill Gates Foundation, Kobe Bryant, Skakira’s Pies Descalzos Foundation and Unicef.

Barça has just been crowned champions of Europe for the fourth time at Wembley, which only added to the huge expectation ahead of their visit to a country where soccer is getting bigger every day. Here’s a video reminder of the 2011 trip, and the kind of scenes that are likely to repeated when the team is back in the States later this month of July.
