Bayern-Union Match Postponed Due To Heavy Snowfall

Bayern Munich’s clash against Union Berlin has been postponed due to heavy snowfall in the Bavarian capital.

Gatekeepers News reports that authorities, while confirming this on Saturday, said the match had been scheduled to take place on Saturday afternoon but a press statement from Bayern said “security risks and the traffic situation made cancellation unavoidable”.

Low temperatures brought heavy snowfall across southern Germany, particularly in Munich.

Before the cancellation of the game, the Munich transport authorities had already stopped rail connections in the greater Munich area, while traffic had largely come to a standstill.

Bayern in a statement issued on Saturday, said there was an “incalculable risk for spectators” and explained “it is hardly possible to get to the Arena.”

Bayern CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen added in the statement, “Under these conditions, it cannot be guaranteed that the security personnel and other stadium staff necessary for the game to go ahead can get to the Allianz Arena.

“We regret very much that we need to cancel the game, but the safety of our fans and Union Berlin supporters is the absolute priority.”

The German Football Leagues (DFL), which administers the Bundesliga, confirmed the cancellation on Saturday and said a new date for the match would be communicated soon.
