2010 summer tour in Asia

Catalan sports paper Sport claims that Barcelona will next year do a pre-season tour in Asia.

The club thinks that after three years a tour is needed to consolidate the club's position in the growing Asian market.

Barcelona would have a fairly strong position in Japan, but would need to strenghten their market share in countries like China, Malaysia and Singapore, that are dominated by English Premier League clubs and especially Manchester United. Because of the 2010 World Expo, Barcelona certainly plans to play a game in Shanghai, the largest city in China.

See.. I knew the Barcelona board has someone reading comments on this blog, Insiderknowledge perhaps. LOL.

I remember someone told me to lepaklah!!. Well here's your answer. If you don't express your opinion, no one knows how you feel.

So in retrospect, even if I know I can't change any of Barcelona's board decisions, the least I can do is remind them and provide ideas that may be brought forward to them by someone. A guy can always dream and make a wish, can't he?

Thanks Barca.
