FC Barcelona's “Yellow Night” team was forced to move to the United States after the mayor of Guayaquil, Aquiles Álvarez Henriques, refused to be able to hold huge events in the city.
The Canaries have already headed to North American territory to attend their team's presentation in New Jersey on Sunday, February 11.
With a total of 20 players, Barcelona travels to the United States to celebrate Yellow Night
Like the date, the competitor has also already been confirmed. The bullfighters will face Unisamba FC, an American amateur soccer team based in Paterson, the aforementioned city.
The team is dedicated to the development and professional growth of young footballers for the future. The institution has its own facilities and sports complexes.
In Machala they say “no” to the Barcelona president's request to hold the Yellow Night 2024
In turn, the team belongs to the English Premier Soccer League (UPSL), a league founded in 2011 that has become one of the most competitive leagues in the country.
In the United States, the competition is ranked fourth in importance, after the three professional levels, with Major League Soccer (MLS) being first.
Over the course of the season, a total of 400 clubs, including the Yellow Team's next opponent, compete in the UPSL for promotion to that country's highest football tiers.
The Astillero team will be the second Conmebol opponent that Unisamba faces in its history. The first was Sport Boys from Peru in 2022.
This match will be held at Hinchcliffe Stadium, the home stadium of the New Jersey team. The stadium seats 7,500, and is where the Paterson Board of Education and other schools in this city usually play. (Dr)
