Match Postponement Process

On-pitch matters

As the winter months approach in England, some games up and down the country may be affected due to adverse weather conditions. Here, we want to take you through the process that each Club has to go through when assessing the condition of the pitch or areas surrounding the stadium.

Off-pitch matters
