On their return to Spain, Xavi’s charges will take on Club Universidad Nacional (Pumas) on August 7 in the annual Joan Gamper Trophy at the Camp Nou.
Ahead of their trip to the USA, the club will begin plans to replace the pitch, in time for their final pre-season home game, before hosting Rayo Vallecano in a league opener on August 13.
The new pitch will be a hybrid of real grass and synthetic fibres with the latter replaced each season to avoid the surface becoming damaged.
