Barcelona-Napoli match confirmed

It has now been confirmed that Napoli will play Barcelona for the Gamper Trophy at the Nou Camp.

There had already been rumours the friendly tournament was being arranged, but President Aurelio De Laurentiis announced the news on the official club website.

“It will be an honour for us to play against Barcelona,” said the patron.

The Gamper Trophy match takes place every summer at the Nou Camp and the Blaugrana will welcome Napoli on August 22.

“The Neapolitan fans light up the stadiums, as wherever we have played, the Napoli nation have followed.

“For those supporters, this friendly will be a deserved party atmosphere.”

The two sides could meet again, as both are in the Champions League, Barça having lifted the trophy last season.
