Barcelona has been criticized on social media for the women's team traveling to the United States in economy class, while the men's team traveled in first class on the same flight.
The club's spokesman, Josep Pepes, said the women's team traveled in economy class, not business class, as they were included in the tour late after the club had already chartered a plane.دوري محمد بن سلمان

He added that the club deserved more credit for the steps it had taken to promote the women's team.

The Catalan club promised that its women's team would travel in the first class during the remainder of their tour in the United States, after they traveled in economy class.

"The flight was comfortable, as they described it, and from now on they will travel first class on domestic flights," Pepes said in a press conference.

The women's team manager, Maria Tchidor, defended the club in the face of the criticism.

"To all those who have decided these days to criticize the conditions of the women's team on their tour, I say that Barcelona has asked the women's team to travel with the men's team so that in the future they will travel in business class on the team's private plane," Tashidor said in a message on the club's official website.

"The day will come when we can talk about equality because women's sport will receive the same media coverage, sponsorship agreements and fan interest as men," she added.

"Until that day, it would be best for those who criticize us today to realize the effort the club is making to promote women's sport," she added.

Barcelona is currently in its first ever mixed tour, as the men's and women's teams train at Nike's headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, USA.
