2006 - FC Barcelona Tour

Barcelona...More Than A Club...Valdes, Marquez, Ronaldinho, Puyol, Iniesta...

postcard distributed outside of Giants Stadium during the Red Bull v Barcelona game...The reverse of the postcard features a photo of Ronaldinho and the advertisement...More than a club. More than a postcard. Take this postcard into Niketown New York or Soccer Sport Supply and redeem it for one Limited Edition FC Barcelona gym sack...

2006.08.12 Giants Stadium....FC Barcelona Tour v Red Bull NY...It was clear from the number of jersey sporting the burgundy and royal blue of Barca, that the sold-out crowd were here to see Ronaldinho work his magic.

For the first 20 minutes, so were the Red Bulls, who were star struck and didn't come to life until the 21st minute..Ronaldinho would score the first goal for Barca on a penalty kick, easily sending his shot past Red Bull keeper Tony Meola. Youri Djorkaeff would score the equalizer for the Red Bull before the half.

In the second half Barca would take a commanding lead on goals from Ronaldinho, Lionel Messi and Javier Saviola for the 4-1 victory...

Admittedly even though we are Red Bull fans, we too came to see Ronaldinho and he did not disappoint the crowd.
