Barcelona have landed in the United States of America as they kick off their preparations for the 2022/23 campaign.
The Catalans began their pre-season training earlier this month and even played a friendly encounter against UE Olot, which ended in a 1-1 draw.
On Saturday, the Blaugrana flew to the United States, where they will be playing four friendly encounters as they ramp up their preparations for a gruelling campaign ahead.
The good news is that all of Barcelona’s new signings – Franck Kessie, Pablo Torre, Andreas Christensen, Raphinha and even Robert Lewandowski, will be involved in the camp, which will help them get used to their new teammates and the tactics and philosophy at Barça.
On top of that, the Blaugrana will also be standing to gain some financial benefits from the tour. Indeed, Catalunya Radio reports that Barcelona will earn approximately around €10 million from their trip to the United States.
While it is not a huge sum, given the club’s financial situation, every penny matters. Furthermore, it is claimed that president Joan Laporta, who has travelled across the Atlantic with the squad, will be involved in some events during the tour, which will help aid the growth of the Barcelona brand in the country.
