At 8.00 am CET (14.00 local time), FC Barcelona landed at Hong Kong airport, ready for the final stage of the 2007 Asian Tour.

The team quickly transferred to Hotel Grand Hyatt Hong Kong where they will stay until Saturday after a 3,000 km flight from Yokohama.

A packed agenda
From midday to midnight the Barça players are not going to get much time to rest. Almost as soon as they arrive there is the pre-match presentation to be attended by Frank Rijkaard, Eto'o and Ronaldinho. This will be followed by a promotional activity for Nike and the long day will end with a training session on the same ground where the match will be played.
