El Trafico in the Rose Bowl will have to wait.
The Major League Soccer weekend opening game between LA Galaxy and LAFC on Saturday has been postponed due to a severe winter storm hitting California, the teams announced on Friday.
It is not yet clear when the game will be ready.
The game was scheduled to take place at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena and was expected to break the MLS single game attendance record of 74,479. The famous stadium can hold over 92,000 people and has already sold over 70,000 tickets each day. Kevin Baxter of the Los Angeles Times.
The game between LAFC and Galaxy was the first of three the two clubs are due to play this season. They will play April 16 at Dignity Health Sports Park and then again on September 16 at BMO Stadium.
A winter storm hit the state on Thursday and even brought snow to parts of Southern California. A blizzard warning is in effect through Saturday afternoon in the mountains of Los Angeles County, and the storm is expected to bring heavy rain, flooding and strong winds to the region.
The match was the second postponed due to weather conditions. The Sporting Kansas City game against the Portland Timbers has been rescheduled for Monday due to snow in Oregon.
