The Arctic conditions in the United Kingdom over the past week have wreaked havoc on this weekend’s football.
In fact, more than HALF of Saturday’s EFL fixtures have been postponed because of frozen pitches caused by the recent sub-zero temperatures.
Two Championship matches are off, along with six League One games and ten League Two matches. There are also postponements due to the weather in the National League, while Chesterfield vs Eastleigh is off due to COVID-19 self-isolation requirements.
Saturday’s four Premier League matches are all scheduled to go ahead, with Leicester vs Liverpool kicking off at 12:30pm in -1°C conditions – though the Arctic chill means it actually feels closer to -7°C.
In fact, it was so cold at the King Power Stadium that the match got under way with the goal nets actually frozen!
Saturday is expected to be the final day with sub-zero temperatures, with things becoming much more mild from Sunday.
