Official: FC Barcelona Confirm Friendly Vs Mamelodi Sundowns

By David Kappel - May 10, 2018 01:55 PM @kappilinho

FC Barcleona have finally confirmed that they will face Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns in honour of Nelson Mandela next week.

"FC Barcelona will be playing its part in the events to commemorate what would have been Nelson Mandela’s one hundredth birthday as they travel to South Africa for a friendly game on May 16 against ABSA Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns," a statement on the Spanish giants' official website read.

"The team will travel to Johannesburg the day before the match, which kicks off at 6.15pm (both local time and CET) in the FNB Stadium, formerly known as Soccer City Stadium.

"The teams will be playing for the Mandela Centenary Cup, which forms part of the celebrations of the life of Nelson Mandela in 2018. The game presents a wonderful opportunity for South African supporters of Barca, and is being organised by the South African Football Association together with LaLiga World Challenge."

It will be Barcelona's second visit to South Africa after they already faced Mamelodi Sundowns in a friendly in Pretoria in 2007, when the Catalans won 2-1 with goals from Santi Ezquerro and Marc Crosas.

I'm proud of the initiative Sundowns (Motsepe & everyone involved) is making. I'm a proud Pirates supporter, but I openly give credit where it's due. Motsepe is his hands on approach in growing Sundowns as well as the SA diski in general. Look at his investments in the Motsepe League, the salaries he gives to players & staff working at Sundowns. I'm gona attend the Barca game & appreciate the opportunity to see stars like Suarez, Messi, Dembele, Pique, etc. Other chairmen should learn from Mr Motsepe without jealousy.

@Pirates_999 and PHAZAMISA, People like you are clueless cows that are filled with hatred. You have so much jelous it even clouds your judgement to recognise something good. Many south Africans are going to see their favourite stars thanks to the same Motsepe that you're mocking. Go tell Khoza and Motaung to do the same. Or even better, they must send Chiefs and Pirates to play these teams abroad.From Chiefs supporter.

Patrice Motsepe is trying so hard to be like Kaizer and Khoza. Bringing Barca to SA for the second time won't make him qualify to be on their league even his Money will never! Chiefs and Pirates will forever be our greatest teams in SA. Sundowns will come third always.... #IqinisoLiyababa
