The cancellation of the match in Washington D.C. could be followed by the Old Lady scrapping the other two matches on their U.S. tour.Juvenus has pulled out of a scheduled friendly against D.C. United that was set to take place on July 28 at RFK Stadium. The move has brought the team's entire proposed three-match USA tour into question.
The Old Lady recently learned they would be playing Napoli in Beijing for the Italian Supercoppa on Aug. 11. The placement of the game in China presented coach Antonio Conte with a daunting travel schedule, which reportedly was a concern.
Aside from the now-scrapped D.C. United game, Juventus is scheduled to face Paris Saint-Germain in Montreal on July 31 and Real Madrid in Las Vegas on Aug. 5. Those matches are now in serious doubt.
A statement on D.C. United's website read:
“We’ve received word that Juventus FC will no longer be playing in Washington, D.C. While we’re disappointed with the news, D.C. United is already in discussions with another, major European team to fill that date and will share opponent and ticketing details as a deal is finalized.”
