July 22, 2009

A 28 strong Barça squad arrived in London on Tuesday afternoon ahead of their pre-season friendlies to be played at Wembley Stadium.

The squad is comprised of 17 first team players and 11 reserves, and includes such well known faces as Victor Valdes, Lionel Messi, Thierry Henry and Bojan, as well as recent signing Maxwell, while missing from this squad are Puyol, Xavi, Iniesta, Piqué, Busquets, Alves and Milito.

The players are staying at the Danesfield House Hotel & Spa until Sunday and this week will be training at the Bisham Abbey Sports Centre.

Following the Wembley matches, against Spurs and Al-Ahly, the Barcelona squad heads to the States for three matches against Los Angeles Galaxy, Seattle Sounders and Chivas. The first opportunity to see the new Barça lineup in Spain will be in Bilbao on August 16 in the first round of the Spanish Supercup against Athletic, while their first home match is the Gamper Trophy on August 19.

The visiting team in the Gamper is still to be decided – you can check availability of tickets for all matches on the homepage.
