Courtesy of their ongoing collaboration with Lazz Sports, Belgian handball team Olse Merksem are spending several days in Barcelona on a friendly tour and training camp from 14th to 19th January.
The team are currently leading the Belgian national second division and are working hard to reach the top division for next season.
For the second year in succession the club decided to come to Barcelona for a winter camp and they are training in Sant Joan Despi twice a day, whilst also playing three preparation matches against some of the best handball teams in the region.
They will play teams like Esplugues de Llobregat, Sant Joan Despi and most importantly an FC Barcelona (featuring players from the B team and few professional players from the FCB first team).
To round off their trip on Friday, the group will attend three Handball World Cup matches played in Barcelona.
