Sports campus in Turkey and visit by the Foundation

Jordi Bellmunt, patron of the FC Barcelona Foundation has travelled to learn more about the Foundation’s work and philosophy in Istanbul, where an FCBEscola camp is currently in progress

Since last June 24 and until Friday 28, Istanbul has been the venue for the ‘FCBEscola Campus Avea’. The event has brought together 120 boys and girls who are enjoying different training sessions, football matches and sports games in the purest of Barça styles. Four FCBEscola coaches are in the country to coordinate the activities and make sure they are in keeping with the criteria applied by FC Barcelona to all of its official schools.

The event is being run with the support of Turkish telecommunications company Avea, FC Barcelona’s sponsor in the territory. In association to the camp, FC Barcelona Foundation patron Jordi Bellmunt has travelled to Istanbul to join Avea at different meetings with social bodies in the country. Bellmunt també has also been able to speak to these organisations and the local media about the projects and philosophy behind FC Barcelona’s work through its Foundation.
