Barcelona heading to Asia this summer

In a press conference on Monday to discuss financial matters of the club, Barcelona general director Joan Oliver mentioned that Barca will be touring Asia this summer.

With the World Cup taking place from June 11 until July 11 the pre-season tour will be more difficult to schedule but it is believed that it will take place the beginning of August.

A yet to be announced FIFA match has also been scheduled for the club on August 15.

FC Barcelona held their last Asia tour in 2007 with matches in China, Japan and Hong Kong. The past two summers the club has concentrated on the US playing on the East Coast in 2008 and the West last season.

Barcelona has spent the last two summers touring the U.S., but it looks like they will back in the U.S. in 2011.
