La Liga champions Barcelona have promised a full-strength side when they take on a Happy Valley and Kitchee All Stars team in an exhibition in August. The match, to be held at Hong Kong Stadium on August 10, will be the first visit of the Spanish giants - who reportedly will be paid HK$17 million - to the SAR. 'Barcelona are a world-class team who have a huge supporter base in Hong Kong,' said Kitchee president Ken Ng Kin. 'They have promised all their top players, including Ronaldinho, will show up in Hong Kong for the match.'
