We believe that competition is important for a player’s development, as it is important to implements all that’s been practiced during the sessions. The Barça Academy program aims to give a competition experience, not merely a competition focused on a score or a classification. To inculcate this philosophy and to give continuous match day practice to our players, we organise an 8-week long league in every cycle of this season to keep the competitive spirit up in its players.

To give more exposure to its players, Barça Academy plays friendlies against a host of football schools and participates in external leagues and tournaments. We regularly play friendlies against PSG Academy India, BBFS Football Schools and RSA. These friendlies are played with the aim of giving match practice to our players ahead of important tournaments that we participate in.

As per domestic tournaments we have participated and won the RSA cup for the last 2 years consecutively.

We select players for our Top Squad every season which represents Barça Academy at various international tournaments. Special training sessions are held on Fridays for the top squad which alternates monthly between the Escola centers.


Every year we participate in the Barça Academy International tournament which is held in Barcelona and is the most prestigious event of our season. Apart from that we also participate in Dubai Super Cup and Singa Cup.

We recognize the importance of different aspects required in player development. Apart from football training and matches, physical conditioning plays a very important and integral part, thus we have a value added program mandatory for every player.


These sessions are conducted in addition to the regular sessions. The main objective of these programs is to improve the performance of our players and give them the best knowledge and training.
