MIAMI.- Barcelona caused expectation upon its arrival in Fort Lauderdale, some 40 kilometers north of Miami, where next Tuesday it will face Inter Miami led by Briton David Bekcham at the DRV PNK Stadium.
The social networks pick up this Sunday the arrival of the Barcelona players at their hotel in Fort Lauderdale, where they were expected by fans who acclaimed the stars of the Spanish team.
Barcelona arrived in the state of Florida on Saturday night and will continue their preseason in Fort Lauderdale, after drawing 1-1 with Olot last Wednesday in Spain.
Young fans awaited their idols with balls and shirts for the players to sign.
Barcelona will continue training in Florida this Sunday, without its coach, Xavi Hernández, who was unable to travel due to problems with his visa and who is expected in the next few hours, as is his latest signing, Polish striker Robert Lewandowski.
“Bringing a club of the caliber of FC Barcelona to South Florida will continue to put our region on the map as a global soccer epicenter,” said Inter Miami Business Director Xavier Asensi.
The city of Miami recently approved the transfer plan for some land near the city’s airport on which David Bekcham’s team wants to build a stadium for some 25,000 people, a shopping center, offices and a hotel with 750 rooms, among other things. installations.
