FC Barcelona want to pay tribute to the former Barça player and coach

Tito Vilanova's name is eternal. The pitch that was known as the training pitch number one in the Joan Gamper Sports City, will be named as "Tito Vilanova" to pay tribute to the former Barça coach.

Tito Vilanova, who died last April 25, left the first Barça squad  the summer of 2013 when he was Barça's coach. After winning "La Liga of 100 points", the coach couldn't be leading the group because of his disease.

In this pitch is where the first squad team is training every day. For this reason, the Barça players will train in the pitch that has the name of who was their coach during 5 years (1 as a coach, and 4 as a Guardiola's assistant).
