Barcelona and AS Roma were set to play Joan Gamper pre-season game at the Camp Nou on 6th of August.

Both Roma men’s team and women’s team were set to pay. However, now they have no intention to play the game.

Therefore, Barcelona said in a statement on Monday: “AS Roma have decided to unilaterally, without reason, withdraw from the agreed contract,”

“Money already spent on tickets will be returned to [supporters] and we want to make it clear that the suspension of the games has been due to circumstances outside of our control.

“The club’s legal department is studying possible action against Roma for damages caused to Barcelona and its fans due to this unexpected and unjustified decision.”

Moreover, the Serie A side also released a statement saying: “The club would like to thank Barcelona for the invitation to participate in the Gamper and wishes both its teams well with their upcoming preseason preparations.”
