Barcelona are primed for the new season.

Ahead of La Liga's big kick off on August 18th, Barca returned to Camp Nou for a friendly with Brazilian side Chapecoense, who tragically lost 19 of their players in a tragic plane crash last year.

To mark a momentous night, Barca presented their 2017/18 squad and the Chapecoense players who they welcomed to Camp Nou via a 360 stream on Facebook, powered by their new shirt sponsor, Rakuten.

Barca recently struck a shirt sponsorship deal with the Japanese online giant worth £47m a year. Get to know Barcelona's senior squad for the coming season on the video above.
