Sergi Roberto admitted he had a “great experience” playing in the competition and that it was “very interesting playing against teams from other countries.”

Up to 40 difference countries participate in the MIC. The director of the tournament, Juanjo Rovira, said that the competition has “reached a very important level” and that some teams find it difficult to “qualify.” Two different Barça youth teams compete in the tournament: U-14 and U-12.
