FC Barcelona’s last game in 2023 will not be against Almería in La Liga. As we explained in FCBN a few weeks ago, the Barça entity is working to make a friendly match in the United States to try to generate more income. and journalist Gerard Romero explained this Thursday that this game will be played on December 21 in the city of Dallas.
The information shows that the opponent of Xavi Hernández’s team is América from Mexico, which emphasizes that it is the most viable alternative for MLS clubs that go through their holidays at that time of the year. Also, all indications are that the game will be played in the Cotton Bowl, where the Blaugrana have already faced Juventus in the 2022 preseason tour, a duel that ended up being canceled this past summer.
The precise match that was not missed during the last tour against the Italians is the main reason why the financial management of the club did not hesitate to take advantage of almost 15 days of vacation at the end of the year to create those millions of euros. not included in the summer box. Without an official statement, this is how the Barça team will close the 2023 season.
On December 21, the exact date, the match will take place before Christmas, after La Liga commitments. Thus, the players have a few days off to spend with their families, but first, they have to fulfill their commitment away from Barcelona.
It is worth noting that the last day of the year will be between December 19 and 20, with games during the week. Assessing the situation in this way, it seems very logical that the culé will play their match against Almería on Tuesday, the 19th, early in the season, who will immediately begin his journey of more than 10 hours to the United States and will play the game on Thursday night, possibly early Friday morning in Spain.
