Rumour has it this afternoon that Hibs possible pre-season friendly with Catalan giants Barcelona could go ahead at the 67,000 capacity Murrayfield Stadium in the capital.

It was revealed in some area's of the press last week that Barcelona were looking to play two games in Scotland against Hibs & Dundee Utd before the start of next season.

It is though the game will take place on July28th.

The reason for the switch to Murrayfield, is thought to be because Barcelona want all children to get into the game for free, as part of there tie up with children's charity Unicef, bringing into question if Easter Road's 17,400 capacity could handle the demand for tickets.
