Barcelona to Bring Soccer Camps to Seattle

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Soccer power Barcelona has licensed its name to the company All American Sports Enterprises Inc. to open youth camps in the United States.

The company said Wednesday that camps will be held in July and August in Los Angeles; New York; Portland, OR; San Antonio; San Jose, Calif.; and Seattle. A technical team from the Escola youth program will travel from Spain “to oversee preparation and execution.”

Escola is a feeder to Barcelona’s La Masia residential youth academy, which has produced a large percentage of the current first team.

Barcelona has licensed its name to youth programs in Argentina, Brazil, El Salvador, England, India, Singapore, Slovenia and South Korea.
