The game Vitória de Guimarães-Farense, of the 14th round of the I football league, was postponed until tomorrow, Sunday, due to the formation of a layer of ice on the lawn of Estádio D. Afonso Henriques.
“Turf conditioned by ice postpones the game Vitória SC vs SC Farense. The meeting is now scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday, at 18:00 ”, announced the Portugal League.
With the start of the match delayed by half an hour, the employees of the Guimarães club still tried to remove the ice, using buckets of hot water and training sticks to "chop" the lawn.
But, 30 minutes after the scheduled time for the start of the game, the referee, Fábio Veríssimo, returned to the pitch and understood that the situation was insurmountable. Within 24 hours, the two teams return to the pitch to play.
