The annual Joan Gamper Trophy match date has been released by FC Barcelona and they will be facing Juventus on August 8, 2021.
The season opener is played in honour of Joan Gamper at the beginning of every season against a team invited by Barca.
Juventus first featured in the exhibition back in 2005 when Fabio Capello was still their coach.
It used to be an all men affair, but it seems that has changed now with this new style. In this current format though, FC Barcelona Femeni and men’s senior side will both face Juventus [women and men’s team] on the same day but at different hours.
While the female team will kickoff at 6:00pm CEST, Koeman’s team will take to the field at 9:30pm CEST.
Venue: Camp Nou
Date: August 8, 2021
Time: 6:00pm CEST [Women]
9:30pm CEST [Men]
