FCB Escola doubles the participation in its campuses

Vanessa Forns

Barça’s footballing activity has not stopped for thousands of young people this summer who will be enjoying FCB Escola soccer schools in different parts of the world.

Over the next few weeks, a total of 30 official campuses in 13 different countries and 3 continents will be welcoming more than 4,300 participants. That’s twice last year’s number, when there were 2,200 participants in 18 different campuses. This consolidated expansion of official campuses managed by the FCB Escola and Barça is an excellent way of promoting the club’s footballing ideals.
