Men's football open doors training session on December 30 at the Estadi Johan Cruyff
Annual festive event organised by the FC Barcelona Foundation to begin at 11am local time
Next December 30 has been set as the date for this year's men's football open doors training session, which will be starting at 11am CET in the Estadi Johan Cruyff at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. Like every year, the fundraising event is being organised by the FC Barcelona Foundation.
All members wishing to attend can get their tickets today and tomorrow for just €3 (plus a handling fee of €1.75). From Wednesday 20 December they will also be on sale to the general public.
Up to four tickets can be purchased per order. All proceeds will be donated to the Robot Project that is part of the FC Barcelona Foundation Emotional Wellbeing Programme, which enables hospitalised or at-risk children to enjoy a virtual trip to the Barça grounds and get the full blaugrana experience via video and audio connection using special robots called Pol and Joyce.
The traditional visits to children's hospitals by the players and staff will be happening on Tuesday 2 January 2024. In a change to the usual format, the players will also be visiting a number of children's homes in the Barcelona area, where young people of all ages whose own families are unable to care for them for a variety of reasons associated to social risk are instead living in temporary care.
