Barcelona have confirmed their opponents for the annual season opener, the Joan Gamper Trophy.

The Catalan giants will battle Mexican side Pumas on the 7th of August at 20:00 CEST at Camp Nou, while the Femeni side will play Montpellier HSC at 20:00 on the 23rd of August.

The club stated this with an official message released on their official website.

AS Roma were first contacted but withdrew from the match in order to perfect their preparation for the game according to their statement, although it was rumoured that European Clubs Association and President Nasser Al-Khelaifi were involved.

AC Milan was subsequently contacted for the same event but the offer was rejected within a month.

The Joan Gamper trophy is a traditional curtain raiser for the new season for Barcelona. A match that ushers them into a new season.
