One of the things that has made football so enduring around the world is that you can play in all sorts of conditions. All our venues have ‘all-weather’ pitches, so your game will be on unless:

  • The transport network is significantly affected by weather or accident
  • The venue is closed due to adverse weather or other conditions

On the rare occasion that the decision to postpone a match days fixtures, your league manager will send an email out to the teams that are affected via the email address(s) we have of players/teams. Please bear in mind that the issues for postponing are often fluid situations, so decisions are only made when we can be quite sure that the issue will remain.

Players get to the venues in all sorts of ways, so an issue on your particular route will not necessarily affect others. However, there are rare occasions where it makes sense for all concerned for a match day of fixtures to be postponed. The following are examples of potential reasons for this:

  • There is a strike affecting the majority of the transport network
  • The majority of the transport network is significantly affected by weather or accident

Once a decision of a postponement has been made, your league manager will send an email out to the teams that are affected via the email address(s) we have of players/teams. Please bear in mind that the issues for postponing are often fluid situations, so decisions are only made when we can be quite sure that the issue will remain.
