Barcelona will start afresh in 2022/23 after enduring a tremendously difficult 2021/22 campaign that started with the unthinkable departure of club icon Lionel Messi.
Having only been appointed in November, Xavi will have his first pre-season in charge of the squad, while there are also expected to be several new faces at Camp Nou.
It all stands to put the Blaugrana in a better position to challenge again, with pre-season fixtures an important early indicator as to where Xavi and his team are at.
Barcelona haven't been on a summer tour since 2019 because of the Covid-19 pandemic and have stayed much closer to home during the last two summers as a result. But that will change in 2022 as things increasingly return to normality.
Where are Barcelona going for 2022/23 pre-season?
Barcelona visited the United States for their last pre-season tour in 2019 and will be heading back there in 2022. As well as training and match practice for the players, it is of great importance to further the club's reach in the North American market.
The squad will spend up to 12 days stateside and, although unconfirmed, are expected to play one game in Las Vegas, which has a growing status as a sports city.
Another game is hoped for Los Angeles, as well as more in an unconfirmed west coast city.
Barcelona pre-season 2022/23 confirmed schedule
