FC Barcelona gets a new season of football underway with its traditional friendly that is named after the club's founder. The Joan Gamper Trophy is played in August, once players return from their summer break, and it provides fans a great opportunity to see some of Barça's new signings in action before the serious business of leagues and competitions begins. It's also a fantastic chance to visit the majestic Camp Nou stadium, Europe's largest and a must-see for any real soccer aficionado; indeed it's one of the most-visited places in Catalonia.

To contest the trophy (until 1996, it was actually a four-team competition with two semi-finals and a final played, but a rise in other pre-season events meant that it was scaled back), the club invites an international challenger.

This year Barça play against the Arsenal team.
