Barcelona's summer Asian tour schedule 2019. Update Barcelona's friendly and pre-season schedule during the summer of 2019 (July 24th - July 27th).

Due to unattending ICC 2019, Barcelona's summer tour is limited to 4 days, from 24/7 to 27/7. The reason Barcelona left the ICC is not mentioned by Cataluyna's powerful club.

However, the purpose for planning to return to Asia is very clear and is aimed at two goals. First, it is to deploy commercial projects with partners and also the main sponsor of the current Barcelona: Rakuten Corporation (Japan). The second is to sign contracts with Asian betting companies. Barcelona leaders also want to take this opportunity to expand and develop the brand in Asia, although the name of Barcelona is well known across the globe.

“Asia is a big and potential market. Barcelona wants to cooperate with all partners here. We will also continue to deploy plans to open more Barcelona football academies in Asia, "said spokesman Josep Vives.

The destination of Lionel Messi and teammates is Japan. Specifically, on July 24, Ernesto Valverde and his teachers will meet Chelsea at Saitama Stadium. Four days later, they were guests before the host Vissel Kobe. Notably, there are three former Barelona Vissel squad members, David Villa, Andrés Iniesta and Sergi Samper.
