Sadly, the inauguration of the Long Island academy has been cancelled due to the poor weather forecast for New York City tomorrow. First team stars Gerard Piqué and Sergi Roberto were due to attend the event along with the vice-president for sport Jordi Mestre, club ambassador Juliano Belletti and fellow former player Thierry Henry.
Instead, the Barça Academy Long Island is to be officially opened some time over the course of the next few weeks.
