Arsenal Match Postponed After Colorado-Like Weather

Rapids partner club Arsenal FC have rescheduled their match today vs. Bolton after London was hit with a storm bearing unusually heavy snowfall and freezing temperatures.

From Arsenal's website:

"Despite making every effort to stage tonight's match against Bolton Wanderers, the sudden and unpredicted adverse change in weather conditions in the Highbury area has left us no choice but to postpone the fixture.

We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused and wish to state that this decision was not made lightly and supporters' safety and travel arrangements were major factors in our thinking.

The Club will announce the revised date for this match in due course and all tickets currently held will be valid for the rearranged fixture."
