THE LOS ANGELES FC BARCELONA SOCCER FOUNDATION 501c(3)
IN 2001 OUR FOUNDATION WAS OFFICIALLY RECOGNIZED AS A 501c3 NON-PROFIT IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA AND WAS APPROVED AS AN OFFICIAL "PENYA" OF FC BARCELONA.
The L.A. FC Barcelona Soccer Foundation was founded in 2001 in the State of California as a 501c3 non-profit organization and later that year became officially approved by the world renowned professional soccer organization, FC Barcelona, as one of their "World Zone" based Penya's.
The goal of our 501c3 Non-Profit Foundation has always been to carry out
Three Principle Objectives.
I. To represent and support one of the greatest professional soccer clubs of the world, FC Barcelona, as their first U.S. based Official "FC Barcelona Supporters Club (Penya #1437)." Click on the following link for official list of Barca Penya's: FCB Penya's

II. To fully support the activities of the Total Futbol Academy Youth Soccer program, via the "Kids Off The Streets" campaign, as well as to provide a professionally structured and disciplined youth soccer academy "vehicle" that ultimately guides them to achieve their ultimate goal of attending college.
The focus of our program is to influence and monitor the progression of our student athletes so that they are properly prepared both academically and emotionally in order to enter the next phase of their academic pursuits.
III. To provide the ability for other youth soccer organizations and coaches to gain access to our acquired know-how and resources by joining our AFFILIATION PROGRAM.
Among other things, the program offers coaches the ability to participate in our annual professional Coaching Clinic in Barcelona, Spain during the Spring season, as well as gain 24/7 secured access to our revolutionary Online Coaches Portal.
