Winter storm watch triggers postponement

[USA-RUSSIA] The USA-Russia women's game scheduled for Wednesday indoors at Atlanta's Georgia Dome has been postponed until Thursday (live ussoccer.com stream at 7:30 p.m. ET) because of the forecast for bad weather in the area. More than 14,000 tickets have been sold for the match, but initial weather reports indicated a winter storm watch for Wednesday.

The decision was made as state and city officials work to reduce the problems that occurred during a winter storm in late January that left some residents stranded in their cars. The postponement was announced Monday night in an attempt to alert fans outside of the Atlanta area in advance of their travel plans.



Tickets purchased for the previously scheduled match will be honored for the rescheduled match. Customers who cannot attend may request a full refund from the original point of purchase. Fans who ordered tickets online can contact Ticketmaster customer service at 1-800-653-8000. All refunds must be requested no later than Sunday, Feb. 23

    This is why MLS should NOT move to a winter schedule. Europe is stupid anyway for not playing in the nicer weather months of June/July. Instead of Dec. Jan. and Feb. We do not need to copy everything Everything Europe or EPL or FIFA does. We can improve on it. We are Americans. Always improving the sports product. Europe and FIFA are the old stodgy ones. Stuck in thier irrational traditions!
