London City Lionesses v Arsenal Women has been called off due to a waterlogged pitch
A soggy field has forced the postponement of tonight’s FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup quarterfinal Arsenal vs London City Lionesses.
Despite the excellent weather outlook for the rest of the day, the playing surface is flooded due to recent heavy rain. An early decision was made to postpone the match, with a sell-out crowd anticipated.
There will be a new tie date and start time decided upon soon. The game might be rescheduled as soon as possible because neither team has a midweek match the following week.
The focus for both teams will now shift to getting ready for this weekend’s Adobe Women’s FA Cup fifth-round matches. Arsenal will host Manchester City, the defending champions of the Barclays Women’s Super League, while London City Lionesses will host Liverpool. The London City Lionesses will be hoping that the Princes Park pitch drains for the weekend despite further rain being predicted for the next few days.
This evening’s three other FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup quarterfinal matches are set to take place. Those games are currently scheduled to take place.
