Barcelona will play third US game in Oakland

Catalan sports paper Sport claims that Barcelona will play their third game in the US Tour in Oakland, California.

There hasn't yet been closed a final deal with an opponent but it's very likely that Barcelona will face Club Deportivo Chivas.

Barcelona announced earlier this month that the team will play on Saturday 1 August against Los Angeles Galaxy in Pasadena and on Wednesday 5 August against Seattle Sounders in Seattle (read more
here).

Barcelona will go on tour in the US at the end of July and the beginning of August. The dates of the games could still change because Barcelona manager wants to stay as few days as possible. The calendar will be defintely established in the coming days. For the three games, Barcelona will receive a fee of close to 6 million euro net. The organizers of the tour will have to pay a bonus because of the trophies won by the club this season.

YES! I live part-time in Santa Barbara (80 mins from Rose Bowl) so I get to see the Galaxy/Barca game on Aug 1st. I also live the other half in Berkeley (10 mins from Oakland) so I get to see Barca twice!

I don't think it will be in Oakland. The Major League Baseball team (Oakland A's) will still be in season so half the field will have infield dirt. I can see the game at Stanford or UC Berkeley instead.
