FC Barcelona has announced the dates and locations of its pre-season Asian tour this coming summer. The Spanish side will play three exhibition matches against as-yet-unannounced opponents, in Shanghai, Bangkok, and Kuala Lumpur.
This isn’t the club’s first visit to Asia. In 2010, Barça visited Beijing, thrashing home side Guoan FC at the Beijing National Stadium 0-3.
The Shanghai friendly, most likely against Shenhua (but considering the club’s lousy 2013 so far, maybe not) will take place on August 4.
