Barcelona have announced they will take on AS Roma in the 2022 edition of the Joan Gamper Trophy.

The traditional curtain-raiser will take place at the Camp Nou on August 6 and will see both the men’s and the women’s team in action.

Barca Femeni will kick off proceedings at 5.30pm local time. The men will follow on with kick-off scheduled for 9.00pm.

Roma head to the Camp Nou after a season where they finished sixth in the Serie A table but ended the campaign on a high by winning the Europa Conference League.

This is not the first time the Italians have played the Gamper Trophy. Roma also took part in 2015 when they were beaten 3-0 by Barcelona.

The fixture will obviously bring back a few bad memories for Barca fans of the Champions League exit in 2018 which was the last time the two sides met competitively.

Barca’s game against Roma will wrap up a pre-season that sees Xavi’s side also take on Olot, Real Madrid, Juventus, and the New York Red Bulls.

The first La Liga fixtures of the 2022-23 season are scheduled for the weekend of the 12 August.
