FC Barcelona have finally announced their U.S. summer tour plans. The potential Champions League Winners will play three games, two of which will be against MLS opposition.
Our sister site Soccer Tickets Online reports that Barcelona will Barcelona will tour the U.S. west coast, taking on the LA Galaxy on Saturday, August 1 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. (11:00 p.m. ET), and the Seattle Sounders on Wednesday, August 5 at Qwest Field in Seattle (10:30 p.m. ET).
There is a still to be announced third game on the schedule which I expect to be played in the Miami area.
This is the second consecutive season that Barca will tour the U.S and will be facing MLS competition for a third time in four summers. They have faced, and beaten, the New York Red Bulls on two previous visits to the United States, including last summer’s 6-2 exhibition victory over the Red Bulls at Giants Stadium.
Tickets to see the Spanish giant, whose honors include 18 La Liga trophies, a record-setting 24 Copa del Rey championships and two UEFA Champions League titles, will go on sale to the general public in the coming weeks.
