City versus Sunderland game postponed

12 February 2014 19:44

Manchester City's Premier League match against Sunderland has been called off after weather conditions were deemed unsafe.

The club confirmed the decision, taken in conjunction with match officials and police, approximately an hour before kick-off at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.

City tweeted: "Manchester City can confirm that this evening's fixture versus Sunderland has been postponed due to exceptional and escalating weather conditions.

"The safety of those in around and travelling to the stadium complex cannot be guaranteed.

"This decision has been made by the Safety Officer and Greater Manchester Police. Both managers and the match officials understand and support this decision."

The Met Office, the United Kingdom's national weather service, issued a 'Red' weather warning for parts of the north west of England on Wednesday, with gusts of up to 100 miles per hour forecast.

Greater Manchester Police tweeted that the decision had been taken "in the interests of public safety".

No new date for the fixture has been announced.
