The visiting team is being managed by Andy Ritchie, and will be arriving with the following squad: Van der Gouw, Pilkington, Beardsmore, Berbatov, Blomqvist, Brown, Djordjic, Fortune, Johnsen, Martin, Saha, Ji Sung Park, Poborsky, Ritchie, Thornley, Silvestre, Alan Smith, Dwight Yorke and Webber.

The FCB team made its debut last month in a game played in Beirut, Lebanon, beating the Real Madrid Leyendas 3-2 thanks to goals from Giuly and Simao, all three of which came from Ronaldinho assists, After this game at the Camp Nou, they also have a return match lined up at Old Trafford, home of the Red Devils, on September 2 at 3.00pm local time.

Charity match

All proceeds from the game will be going to the PCCB (Pediatric Cancer Center Barcelona) at Hospital Sant Joan de Déu, which specialises in providing oncological treatment to children. Tickets cost between €10 and €19 and the donation will be used entirely to fund the construction of the new care and research centre.

How to get tickets

Tickets are already on sale via the club’s usual sales channels, namely the official FCB Barcelona website, in person from the club ticket offices or via Ticketmaster.

Discounts and free entry for under 14s

Members of FC Barcelona or FCB Escola buying their tickets via the club website will receive a 2x1 offer. Official supporters clubs (penyes) get the same 2x1 treatment when applying via the penyes department. And for every adult ticket purchased at the ticket offices, one child under 14 gets into the ground for free.

Who are the Barça Legends?

The Barça Legends are the result of an FC Barcelona program to cherish the legacy of the players that have worn the first team shirt over the years. It is also another way to globalise the Barça name and values through its former players, as well as a means for stars to continue playing the game they love following retirement from professional duty. The idea behind the scheme is to arrange a series of matches and associated events in different parts of the world.
