Union-Rapids postponed w/statement

Philadelphia Union manager John Hackworth wasn’t kidding when he mentioned the effects of the weather in Colorado.
Blizzard conditions caused the postponement of the Union’s game against the Colorado Rapids until this afternoon at 3 p.m. Conditions at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo., called for snowfall of 8-14 inches with high winds gusting up to 40 miles per hour, creating treacherous conditions for players and fans alike.
“As always, the safety of our fans, teams and staff are paramount,” said Nelson Rodriguez, MLS Executive Vice President of Competition and Game Operations, in a statement released by the teams late Saturday morning. “We would like to thank both clubs for working with us to plan accordingly and we look forward to their match on Sunday at 1 p.m. local time.”
The game will be televised on TCN.
