The Rose Bowl, one of the most famous outdoor stadiums in American sporting history, and one which has hosted a plethora of major sporting events since it was built in 1922, will open its doors once again to international football when FC Barcelona arrive in Pasadena, California to take on the Los Angeles Galaxy in Match Six of the 2015 International Champions Cup on Tuesday, 21 July at 8.00pm PT (5.00am CET on Wednesday, 22 July.

With a natural grass playing surface and an official seating capacity of 92,542, the Rose Bowl is perhaps most renowned for American football. It is currently the home field of the UCLA Bruins of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the site of the Rose Bowl game — arguably the most famous of several annual "bowls" that, over the building's history, have formed part of the NCAA's ever-evolving championship system.

Aside from having held many other events, including the track cycling events of the 1932 Olympic Games and music concerts featuring a who's who of performers — from Depeche Mode, Metallica and Michael Jackson to Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and U2 — the Rose Bowl also has a rich history hosting matches from that global sport that Americans like to call 'soccer.'

Soccer, erm, football history

In fact, FC Barcelona's first preseason opponents this summer, the Galaxy themselves, called the Rose Bowl home from the team's founding in 1996 until they moved to their current home in 2003.

Aside from Major League Soccer (MLS) matches, the southern California stadium has seen its share of the international spotlight as well. The Rose bowl hosted eight matches as one of the main sites of the 1994 FIFA World Cup, including four in the first round, one in the last 16, one of the two semi-finals, and a thrilling Final between Italy and Brazil, who won 3–2 on penalty kicks after 120 minutes of scoreless play.

For Barça, the Rose Bowl is not overly familiar, and that's because the Catalans have only played there once.  On 1 August 2009, Pep Guardiola's squad, fresh off the first treble-winning campaign in Club history, took on David Beckham and the Galaxy and emerged with a 2–1 triumph on goals from Bojan Krkić and Jeffren Suárez.

On 21 July, Luis Enrique and his own Treble-winner will be back to try and equal, or improve, on that result.

Revenge is a Poison meant for others, which we end up swallowing ourselves. Vengence is a Dark Light that blinds all who seek it. Don’t argue with Idiots.. They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
