This summer's pre-season includes a Barça v Real Madrid clásico, specifically in Las Vegas, U.S.A. on July 23. It is one of the four games Barça will play on their tour of the United States of America, with the Inter Miami, Juventus, and New York Red Bulls their opponents in the other games.
The game will be played in the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. It will also set a precedent as Barça have never played in the city in the state of Nevada.
The stadium has a capacity of 65,000 spectators and is home to the NFL team, the Las Vegas Raiders.
