Class time for the youngsters at La Masia / VÍCTOR SALGADO-FCB

The boys and girls that grow up at the FC Barcelona Masia have very busy days. This video, screened on Thursday at the presentation of the Club’s new model for youth football, shows a day in the life at the Oriol Tort Training Centre: from the moment that the young athletes wake up, following them on the school bus, going back for lunch at the Masia, doing classes before training, having dinner and then going to bed.

Throughout its history, la Masia has never stopped expanding and a number of its former residents have gone on to have a huge impact at the Club. These have included the likes of Guillermo Amor, Pep Guardiola, Tito Vilanova, Jordi Roura, Sergi Barjuan, Carles Puyol and Xavi Hernández, as well as players that are still in the first team now, like Andrés Iniesta, Leo Messi and Sergi Roberto. All of that has helped to make La Masia a leading centre on a worldwide level
