The season is taking shape for the Barça women, who received their brand new hooped kits on Friday ready for a photo shoot prior to their training session. The close-season signings appeared alongside the coaching staff and their new playing colleagues in their new colours as the official pictures were taken for use in the Women’s Champions League. The draw for round of 32 in that competition takes place next Thursday 20 August.

Friendlies confirmed

The preseason schedule has also been confirmed. Next week, from August 10 to 14, the squad will be heading to Prades for a training camp in preparation for the first of three friendlies. That one will be in southwest France against Montpellier, where they’ll meet up with former team-mate Virginia Torrecill on Wednesday 19 August at 6.00pm CET. They then face another French club, Albi, on Sunday 23 August at the Ciutat Esportiva, that match kicking off at 1.00pm CET. Before contesting the Copa Catalunya from August 28 to 30, they have another warm-up match against Catalan side L'Estartit on Wednesday 26 at 6.30pm CET.
