First training sessions at Bisham Abbey

Edgar Fornós

The Barça 2009/10 squad will begin training for the new season at Bisham Abbey, one of the leading sports complexes in England which stands some 10 minutes away from the team’s hotel.

Barça will start training for the new season at Bisham Abbey during their preseason camp in England from 21 to 26 July. The sports complex is to be the venue for the first physical tests and practice matches after the players’ holidays.

Similar to Wembley

Base for Portsmouth
