Nutritional practices before, during and after football training and matches remain fundamental strategies to improve performance and/or enhance recovery and adaptation.

This, the first FCB nutrition conference in partnership with the Gatorade Sports Science Institute, will bring together the world leading scientists and practitioners from the professional game. This day will provide the base and latest scientific research which underpins sports nutrition recommendations, before exploring how this is practically delivered by case studies in professional football. During the breaks delegates will have the opportunity to sample and discuss recipes used by FC Barcelona, with the scientists, chefs and sports nutritionists who have created them.

The sessions are designed for those persons interested in nutrition science and who are working in multiple disciplines within football to learn how best to support players development, performance and recovery.  Our overall aim is to share knowledge. Learn about the science and take away practical recipes which will give you the tools to turn the theory into practice.

We look forward to welcoming you to Barcelona.
