The team will be flying to Barcelona for a series of activities beginning Oct. 15-23 in key facilities and landmarks around the city.

These include classroom training, museum visits, a football clinic, a city tour, and a match viewing at Camp Nou that allow them to watch their FC Barcelona heroes in the flesh.
