thumbnail Hello,

Another fixture falls foul of the weather

Blackpool have confirmed that Sunday's match with Tottenham has been postponed after heavy snow.

The Seasiders confirmed the news on Saturday conceding that safety concerns meant the game had to be called off even though the pitch was playable.

"We have been in regular communication with the local authority, the police, Tottenham and the Premier League throughout the last 48 hours and following heavy snowfall on Friday night and forecast of further sub zero temperatures we met on Saturday lunchtime to discuss the fixture and possible problems," club secretary Matt Williams told the club's official website.

"Everyone was in full agreement that the safety of all fans attending the game was of paramount importance and although the Bloomfield Road pitch is playable at the current time, the conditions around the stadium and further afield for people travelling to the match were such that in the best interest of both sets of supporters it was agreed to postpone the fixture."

The fixture joins the majority of Premier League games that have been called off this weekend with only Sunderland's game against Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United's trip to Blackburn Rovers surviving the elements.
