Lincoln – The Nebraska men’s basketball team embarks on its foreign tour this week, as the Huskers will depart for Spain this Friday, July 28.

The team will visit Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona on the trip and play once in each city against local teams. NU will play in Madrid on July 30th, Valencia on Aug. 2 and Barcelona on Aug. 5. A full schedule is listed below.

NCAA programs are allowed to take foreign trips once every four years and this will be Nebraska basketball's first foreign trip since going to Italy in the summer of 2019. It will be the second time NU has traveled to Spain, as the Huskers also went there in 2015.

In Madrid, some of the team’s activities include a visit to the Royal Palace of Madrid, which is the largest royal palace in Europe and a trip to Toledo, which dates back more than 2000 years and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In Valencia, the team will visit the Oceanogràfic València, which is the largest aquarium in Europe, and have a day to enjoy the beach following Wednesday’s game.

The trip wraps up in Barcelona, where the team will visit La Sagrada Familia, one of the largest unfinished churches in the world, as construction began in 1882 and continues until today. Following Saturday’s final game, the Huskers will visit Spotify Camp Nou, the home of FC Barcelona.
