Barcelona to train on England's patch

Barcelona will spend part of pre-season season at St George's Park, England's National Football Centre. They will train at the Staffordshire base from 28 July to 2 August.

"I am absolutely delighted that FC Barcelona have decided to join us for their pre-season preparations later this month," said St George's Park managing director Julie Harrington.

"This is hugely exciting news for St George's Park and the Football Association, and it is a real pleasure to be able to have one of European football's most successful clubs train at our facility.

"We look forward to welcoming the players and staff, and helping ensure their visit with us is both an enjoyable and memorable experience."
