Barca match off due to storm

HONG KONG: Barcelona’s pre-season friendly against Hong Kong select side Mission Hills XI was postponed yesterday because of an approaching storm. 

“It’s likely to be played late on Saturday, depending on what happens,” Eddie Passos, from event organiser ProEvents Management, said. 

Tropical storm Pabuk swept off the South China Sea and through east China late on Wednesday, before turning and heading back towards Hong Kong. 

The match in Hong Kong was the last in the Spanish giant’s pre-season tour to Asia, which has also taken in Beijing and Tokyo. – Reuters
