People from all over the world come to Barcelona because of the famous football team FC Barcelona. Therefore, now I thought it would be a good time to look into the near future and see what is happening with the team.
Spanish Supercup (Supercopa de España)
In the Spanish Supercup, the winners of La Liga and the Spanish Cup play against each other in a 2-legged competition. This year these teams are the arch rivals FC Barcelona and Real Madrid.
