Blackpool's Premier League Clash With Tottenham Called Off After Heavy Snow

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

"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," said club secretary Matt Williams.

"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 decision has been ratified by the Premier League.
