Barca match falls victim to weather

Published Add your comment

Barcelona´s pre-season friendly with a Mission Hills Invitation XI side has been postponed after a cyclone warning was issued in Hong Kong.

The match was scheduled to take place at the Hong Kong Stadium on Friday, but has been put back 24 hours after torrential rain and high winds hit the area.

The decision to postpone the game was confirmed by the Hong Kong Football Association to fall in line with the government´s standard weather safety procedures.
