FC Barcelona vs Club America dallas: Results| Highlights| Time
Barcelona will face Mexican giants Club America in a friendly at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas on December 21, the LaLiga club announced on Friday. The game will be Barcelona’s last before the winter break and is scheduled just a day after they host Almeria in LaLiga action.
FC Barcelona and Club America are set to play a friendly match in Dallas next month.
The clubs announced that the match would be played in support of the victims of Hurricane Otis in Acapulco. It will be Barcelona’s last match before their winter break and is scheduled just a day after they host Almería in LaLiga action.
Club América, the team with the most Liga MX titles, has already been confirmed champion of the concluding championship regular season, and will be the top seed in the playoffs, which will conclude a week before playing Barça.
These two clubs have played each other before – and in Dallas. The first time the two teams played was during the famous North American tour of 1937, and the most recent game between the two sides was 12 years ago in August 2011 (also in Dallas).
Barcelona’s financial troubles in recent years have been well documented, as well as their efforts to make money in an attempt to solve them. One strategy they have adopted is to arrange friendly matches when there are gaps in the official fixture calendar, which they will take to the extreme when they face Club América in Dallas just before Christmas, a game that has now been confirmed.
La Blaugrana will face Las Águilas at the Cotton Bowl on Thursday 21 December (kick-off at 9:00 pm ET), just a day after they play their last La Liga match of 2023 against Almeria at the Estadi Olímpico Luis Co. In Montjuic.
While clubs would not normally consider playing matches on back-to-back days, let alone a transatlantic flight between them, there is a reason why Barça is prepared to make an exception. Or should we say five million of them? According to Catalan sports newspaper Mundo Deportivo, La Blaugrana will earn €5 million ($5.45 million) from their short trip to the United States.
