An official statement from the club said:

“Manchester United, Kitchee and the Hong Kong Football Association have reluctantly made the decision to cancel the open training session, planned for tomorrow (Sunday) evening at the Hong Kong stadium”

The match on Monday is still set to go ahead with ground staff working hard to make the pitch playable.
