Barcelona are already in Los Angeles after completing the first leg of their American tour in Portland.
On Thursday the Azulgrana travelled to California, where both the men’s and women’s teams will play their first pre-season games against Tottenham and Socal FC respectively.
They did so after flying on a different plane than the one the club used for the Barcelona-Portland route, which caused so much fuss because the men were in first class as the women were in economy.
In the second journey, everyone has travelled in business class and the club’s official channels have given a good account of it.

After staying in separate hotels, the two teams will conduct their training on the UCLA campus, starting at 18:00 local time.
Ernesto Valverde is also expected to appear to address the media for the first time ahead of his second season in the Camp Nou dugout.
After the calm of Portland and Beaverton (relative calm, given that Malcom was presented), Barcelona will submerge themselves in the hustle and bustle of LA for three days.
Valverde’s players are staying at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, where the movie Pretty Woman was filmed.
It is located in the well-known enclave of Beverly Hills, at the beginning of Rodeo Drive.
