Beijing - Manchester United said Monday that its pre-season friendly with Manchester City in Beijing has been cancelled after torrential rains soaked the turf at the Bird's Nest Stadium venue.

"Due to recent weather events, tournament organisers and participating clubs have decided to cancel tonight's International Champions Cup game," scheduled for Monday, Manchester United said in a statement.

The International Champions Cup is a pre-season series of friendly exhibition association tournaments and was hosted in China for the first time in 2015.
