Hurricane Irene Forces Philadelphia Union To Postpone Game

Hurricane Irene has already claimed tonight and tomorrow's Phillies game and now we can add the Philadelphia Union to that list. Tomorrow's scheduled game against the New England Revolution has been postponed and will be made up on Wednesday, September 7th at 8pm. All tickets, parking passes for tomorrow etc will be honored at that game.

"With the safety of our fans and clubs top of mind, and thanks to the cooperation of our clubs and broadcast partners, Major League Soccer has rescheduled two games that were originally set for this weekend," said Nelson Rodriguez, Executive Vice President of Competition and Game Operations. "We expect that Hurricane Irene will likely cause hazardous travel and unplayable conditions throughout the Northeast. We appreciate our fans' understanding of these decisions and the media's assistance in communicating the message."

I think to say it will cause "unplayable conditions" is an understatement... So, no Philly sports on Sunday, just rain and wind. Good luck everyone. Stay safe.
