Blackpool vs Spurs confirmed as postponed

1

Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League clash at Blackpool on Sunday afternoon has been postponed.

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

“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.”

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. After a clear week, we really could have done with having this fixture now. Just means that the we will face further congestion later on, and with a (relatively) fit squad we didn’t want this cancellation.
