Brand new picture of Ullevi Stadium, Gothenburg, tonight.

It has been confirmed that this summer’s biggest friendly match, Manchester United vs Barcelona, is to be played at Ullevi 8th August. The last time the teams played at this stadium were back in 1994, when they both separately faced defeat against IFK Göteborg. That was of course not so friendly, but they couldn’t have expected anything else: it was the f***ing Champions League (and IFK won that group A before Barcelona, Manchester United and Galatasaray). However, United and Barca live on in the top international football and IFK haven’t played in CL since last century … Well, one day, maybe again … Ok. Even if he lost as a manager in ’94, Sir Alex will certainly get some good vibrations when entering this stadium. Before his epic long rule of Man Utd, Alex Ferguson coached Aberdeen and won the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1983 against Real Madrid at Ullevi, so let’s see if the hair dryer will have another reason to be joyful this time. The match, close to the start of the season, will also be a huge test for Tito Vilanova, the successor to Pep Guardiola as Barca manager.

Ullevi stadium, built in 1958, initially had wooden benches for 22 000 sitting fans and room for another 32 000 standing. When the stadium, due to the 1995 World Championship in athletics, converted into an all-seater, the capacity was reduced to 43 000 seats. Nowadays it’s down to plus 40 000, but for the match in August there will be a temporary arrangement to let 48 000 come in and enjoy the game.

Alice Cooper is doing a gig in town the same night, at Liseberg. I’m not sure which event to choose. I’ve only seen Alice Cooper on stage once. I would like to do it again.
