Barcelona to play Chivas in the U.S.

The web site says that Chivas Guadalajara will be Barcelona’s third opponent on their tour tour this summer. The two teams will meet on August 9 at the San Francisco 49ers stadium.

Guadalajara, known to their fans as ‘Chivas Rayadas’, has the most Mexican League titles having racked up 11. It also has one of the largest worldwide fan bases. Founded in 1906, it only fields Mexican players and hence has a very strong academy system.

Barcelona and Chivas have played each other twice in the last three years. Last summer they faced off in Chicago, when Barca won 2-5 with goals by Xavi, Hleb, Eto’o (2) and Cáceres. Two seasons before that they drew one all in Los Angeles, with Gudjohnsen scoring for the side then managed by Frank Rijkaard.

When ticket information becomes available we will update the post.
