China, the last stop on the Tour

David Saura (special correspondent)

The Barca squad are in Beijing after a long and intense Wednesday to start the final part of the Tour of Asia.

The Chinese capital welcomes back FCBarcelona three years after their last visit, for another game against Beijing Gouan FC. The last time the teams met was at the Beijing Fengtai Stadium, whereas this weekend’s match will be held the spectacular Birds Nest Olympic Stadium, which was still under construction when the teams last met.

Visit to Shanghai

Alves and Adriano will also visit Nike Town and the rest of the players will take part in a promotional event with Herbalife, as well as morning and evening training sessions.

Audi, official club sponsor, will hold a promotional event at the Stadium before the training session in the evening, similar to the one held in 2007.
