There won't be a post-season tour

Catalan sports paper Sport claims that Barcelona has cancelled a possible post-season tour in June (read more here).

Barcelona signed last year agreements to play friendly games in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Uzbekistan and thought about organizing a tour at the end of the season but those plans have meanwhile been cancelled.

The club was looking at the option to include the game in Uzbekistan in the pres-season schedule if the team would have gone on tour in Asia this summer, but in the end the tour will go to the Untied States (read more here). The games in Saudi Arabia, for which the fees have already been paid, will certainly have to be played at another time since they cannot be organized in July or August because of the heat in the region.
