WELCOME TO THE SPOTIFY CAMP NOW!!! The Largest Stadium on Earth opens its doors tonight for a very special match as Barcelona welcome Manchester City to a charity match to raise money for ALS research. The friendly is hosted by former Barça player and coach Juan Carlos Unzué, who was diagnosed with the disease years ago and enlisted the help of club legends Xavi Hernández and Pep Guardiola for a high-profile friendly at Europe’s largest stadium.
All proceeds go to ALS research and we’re also treated to a fun game between two of the world’s best teams. This should be fun, and you’re welcome to join us to follow and comment on all the action. vamos!

Match Day Thread Rules
We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when participating in our competition day threads:
Even if the referee is bad or we lose the match, look at the swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, do not discuss illegal streaming links. Whoever does it will be warned, and those who post links will be banned immediately. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a community in Barcelona and we don’t need to offend each other.
Have fun with the game! Forever and always, regardless of the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
