Spanish soccer giants Barcelona will pay a tribute to the Fukushima nuclear disaster victims during their stay next week in Japan for the Club World Cup.

Barca will leave for Tokyo right after the biggest match in the Spanish La Liga when they face off against Real Madrid on Saturday.

Wearing commemorative shirts, the Catalans players will be photographed beside children representing the victims at a solidarity event held at the end of the the club's training session on Tuesday at the Yokohama Marinos grounds, Xinhua reported.

An earthquake measuring 9.0 on the richter scale and a giant ensuing tsunami on March 11 knocked out the cooling system at the atomic power plant at Fukushima in Japan's north-eastern coast and sent some of its reactors into meltdown.

The Club World Cup involves the champions of FIFA's six confederations.
