There is no sight of an end to the financial crisis prevalent in FC Barcelona despite the extreme measures taken by the current board. As a result, the club is actively looking for any possible ways to boost its revenues, and one such idea being considered by the club is holding friendly matches at the end of the season.

FC Barcelona have suffered significant economic damages due to their early elimination from the Champions League and Europa League this season. The club is considering mitigating the impact of this loss by holding friendly matches at the end of the season according to Mundo Deportivo.

One destination being touted for these friendly matches is Japan, where the Catalan club is organizing matches after their last league match in June. The club has already informed their coaching staff and the players about this decision, however, the details regarding the exact city and the stadium have not yet been disclosed as the negotiations about the venue are still in progress.

One person who is significantly involved in this operation is the Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta, who currently plays for the Japanese side Vissel Kobe. The player has been playing in Japan since his exit from Barcelona in 2018 and will be looking to use his contacts in Japan to provide the best possible scenario for the club.

In addition to these Japan-friendly matches, Barcelona’s pre-season summer tour will be in the United States. FC Barcelona also had a friendly match before the proper end of the season last year, when they visited Australia and faced an Australian team in Sydney’s Accor Stadium.

This match was watched by more than 70,000 spectators in the stands and provided the club with a healthy sum of income. The club will be looking to repeat this financial feat this year once again, in order to bring much-needed financial relief to the club.
