04 pro and 06 pro are playing the MIC tournament which has teams from the local catalonia area and some famous academies of professional clubs from around europe. 05 pro and 07 pro are playing the Barcelona World Cup which Iím guessing is against the other fcb escolas from around the world, nice experience for a child if they have the opportunity of attending.

It's not what Barca are selling you, it's what Barca parents are selling other people!!!!!

Yes, having a European passport can help take care of that rule. Ben Lederman the first US Youth Player to play at La Masia had a difficult time due to that rule.

So if Pulisic was 14 and playing at Barca NY he too would not be invited to play permanently at La Masia.

They do want to provide everyone involved with a positive experience along the way, thus things like the trips to Europe for tournaments, but the overall goal has nothing to do with producing pro-level talent.
