Barcelona to play friendly against A-League All Stars in Sydney

Baku, April 6, AZERTAC

FC Barcelona will travel to Australia for the first time in its history to play a friendly match on May 25 against a selection of the best players from the Australian soccer league, the A-Leagues All Stars, according to official FC Barcelona website.

The match will be played at the Accor Stadium in Sydney, with a capacity for 80,000 spectators.

Xavi Hernández's team will travel to Australia once their league season is over and will return straight after the match. This friendly is part of a special week in the Australian soccer calendar, taking place just three days before the A-League final. The match also coincides with several major events throughout the week in Sydney, such as the start of Vivid Sydney, one of the most important music and culture festivals held in the Australian city every year.

This is a historic match for the Club, as no professional or amateur Barça team in any sport has ever played a match on Australian soil before.
