The first match

The players will start with a match against Inter Miami on 20-07. This team was founded in 2018 and has been playing in the MLS (Major Soccer League) for 2 seasons. David Beckham is one of the founders of this American team. It is a team with little history in a very popular and well-known city. The American city has been without a professional football team for 16 years, after the Miami Fusion disappeared in 2002.

For the time being, the team counts on the presence of Argentinian footballer Gonzalo Higuaín. El Pipita has a history with Napoli, Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea and Real Madrid. Frenchman Blaise Matuidi, who also plays for Inter Miami, is a player with a history at PSG and Juventus.

The second match

Barça’s second match is not an ordinary match. It is the Clasico between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid! The match will take place in Las Vegas 3 days after (23-07) the first match against Inter Miami. El Clasico is and has always been one of the most important matches in the football world, as it involves the two most famous Spanish teams.

It will not be the first time FC Barcelona will play El Clasico in the United States. The two teams also met in the summer of 2017 in Miami. Barça won that match thanks to goals by Messi, Rakitic and Piqué.

The third match

Italian team from Turin, the Juventus, will be the third opponent during FC Barcelona’s tour of the United States. The match will take place in Dallas (Texas) on 26-07. As was the case with Real Madrid, it will not be the first time Barça and Juventus  met outside Europe. The last match played against the Italian team was in Boston in 2017, and FC Barcelona won (2-1).

The match against Juventus is undoubtedly one of the most entertaining matches of the FC Barcelona tour. The white-and-black team from Turin is well known all over the world, and has many American fans as well.

The fourth match

Barça will play the last match against the New York Red Bulls on 30-07 in New Jersey. The New York Red Bulls are the second American team that FC Barcelona will face during their trip through the United States. This match will have something special for the Culers’ coach, Xavi Hernandez. He played against the New York Red Bulls with Barça in 2006 and 2008. It will be the third time FC Barcelona will play against the New York team.

The New York Red Bulls were founded in 1995. In addition, the team belonged to the first 10 teams that participated in the MLS. However, the Red Bulls managed to recruit some European football legends from the past, such as the Frenchman Thierry Henry and the German Lothar Matthäus.

What it takes to travel to the United States

If you fancy watching a Barça match live in the United States, you will need an ESTA to enter the country. The ESTA is a travel permit that is required in order to travel to the United States. The ESTA is valid for a period of 2 years from the moment it is issued. You can easily apply online for an ESTA in just a couple of minutes.

Once you have obtained your ESTA, you can fly to the United States. Is there a better way to travel than visiting a beautiful country and watch live Barça matches at the same time?
