WELCOME TO THE SPOTIFY CAMP NOU!!! The Greatest Stadium on Earth opens its doors for the first time in three months for the final match of Barcelona’s preseason: the 2022 Joan Gamper Trophy, the traditional home curtain raiser when the squad is presented to the fans and a fun friendly is played to send the home crowd happy before the real football begins. Today’s opponent is Pumas UNAM, who have recently signed Barça legend Dani Alves who comes back to Camp Nou just a few weeks after leaving the club.

Matchday Thread Rules
We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:
Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, watch the swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.
Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
