Barcelona have come to Australia. The Federation didn't pay them.

They would however be entitled to a part of the gate. The gate would be substantial too because tickets here are like $65 per person. Don't know exactly but it isn't exactly cheap. An A League General Admission ticket is $40 or about 28 to 30 Euro.

I think these teams do actually like coming to Australia and the USA.It's not as if it is an issue for them. They won't get a chance to come during their regular season so the might as well venture out. And all those players you mention love coming here.

They get to play in front of 100,000 Aussie fans. Barcelona probably get to play in front of 100k in Spain though.

I remember seeing PAOK play ages ago. I even managed to get Nioblas Signed Guernsey. He was a great Greek International Player. Never forget that.

I don't know if it is the same guy but there was a Greek International player by that name that use to play for PAOK ages ago. I saw him play against West Adelaide back in the day and I remember him turning one of the defenders inside out and almost score.

Must be someone else, because Nioplias played for OFI & Panathinaikos.
