Atletico Madrid's home game against Athletic Bilbao has been postponed due to snow

Share This
Atletico Madrid's LaLiga fixture against Athletic Bilbao has been postponed due to the chaos caused by the snow from Storm Filomena.
The visitors' journey from the Basque Country to the Spanish capital saw all sorts of problems with their flight turned back after their aircraft was unable to land at Madrid's Barajas Airport, which was duly closed on Friday night.

The plane landed safely back in Bilbao, but now a statement from LaLiga has confirmed the match will have to be pushed back, with early rumours of a postponement until March. 


'Given the exceptional situation caused by the storm that a large part of the peninsula is experiencing, which has caused the closure of Madrid's Barajas airport throughout the day and the impossibility of having the field in optimal conditions, LaLiga, after contacting both clubs, has asked the Professional Competition Committee first thing in the morning to suspend the Atletico Madrid-Athletic Club match initially set for today, Saturday at 4:15pm [3:15pm UK time] at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium,' the statement read.
'The new date of the match will be announced in the next few days and must be one of the available dates on the competition calendar.'
