Barcelona announce United States preseason tour with awesome video

New, comments

That's really smart promotion, and our players suck at basketball

Basketball is a very popular sport in the United States, so Barcelona used that fact to promote their upcoming preseason tour in America. Sergio Busquets, Ivan Rakitic and Sergi Roberto try to do tricks with a basketball and fail miserably. Thankfully all three are great footballers.

The video above is Barça's announcement of the upcoming tour in July where the Blaugrana will take part in the International Champions Cup, the now traditional preseason tournament featuring the world's best clubs.

New manager Ernesto Valverde will have three very tough games to look forward to, which will be a great opportunity to test his new squad and tactics already.

This is the full schedule:

Barça will have one final preseason game, back at Camp Nou against Chapecoense in the Joan Gamper Trophy. The first two official matches are Spanish Super Cup against La Liga champions Real Madrid.
