Players cheering on their teammates. Coaches hollering instructions. Words of praise. Exclamations aplenty.

These are the sounds of FC Barcelona's six-day training camp at St. George’s Park in Burton upon Trent. Other, less habitual sounds were added to the mix.

For the idyllic surroundings in the central England training centre could ably double as a recording stage for a sounds of nature app.

Birds chirping. Breeze blowing. Rain drops smacking down into the well-manicured blades of grass upon which the Blaugrana men were treading with gusto.

There was some white noise too, in the form of tractors ploughing away in the nearby fields.

Turn up the volume, click play, and Immerse yourself in the sounds enveloping Barça as they put in their daily work at St. George’s Park.
