Manchester City confirmed for Gamper at Nou Camp

July 22, 2009

Manchester City has now been confirmed to visit the Nou Camp on August 19 to play Barcelona in the 2009 Gamper Trophy.

The invitation event takes place every August to show off the new squad and in recent years has included Juventus and Bayern Munich. The trophy is named after the founder of FC Barcelona, Swiss-born Hans Gamper, and while a friendly is often a good chance to see how the squad performs together.

If Samuel Eto’o decides to stick around at Barça he’ll also be able to check out what he missed by failing to agree terms with Man City – although it is likely he’ll be doing that from the bench.
