Since its foundation in 1979, the school has trained some of the most important football players of the world and is known for providing not only physical training but also for nurturing the players´s values and for contributing to their personal growth. 


Carles started his career as a professional skate hockey keeper and is consider one of the most important keepers of his generation, having contributed to the development of this sport in Spain. He also studied pedagogy and have combined his experience as sportist and teacher in his job as director of La Masía, where he aims for creating a nurturing enviroment for the children in which to develop them as integral beings.

According to Carles, the Club’s educational function is the most important. “We are the only European club that today has the most youth-players between 18 and 19 years old studying university courses. In contrast to other clubs we back more hours spent studying than in the gym".
