“FC Barcelona and Club Atletico Boca Juniors will play the ‘Maradona Cup’ on Dec 14, a game to pay tribute to the star Diego Armando Maradona when the first anniversary of his death is remembered,” Barcelona said in a statement.
Boca confirmed they will take part in the game and said it will be played at the Mrsool Park in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Maradona died from a heart attack on Nov 25, 2020 after battling health issues and undergoing emergency surgery for a subdural haematoma.
The Argentine played for Barca and Boca in a storied career that included trophy wins in both countries. He also famously guided Argentina to their 1986 World Cup triumph in Mexico.
