The Bundesliga clash between Bayern Munich and Union Berlin has been postponed due to heavy snowfall.

Bayern Munich’s clash against Union Berlin has been postponed due to heavy snowfall in the Bavarian capital, authorities confirmed on Saturday.

The match had been scheduled to take place on Saturday afternoon but a press statement from Bayern said “security risks and the traffic situation made cancellation unavoidable”.

Low temperatures brought heavy snowfall across southern Germany, particularly in Munich.

Prior to the cancellation of the game, the Munich transport authorities had already stopped rail connections in the greater Munich area, while traffic had largely come to a standstill.

In a statement issued on Saturday, Bayern said there was an “incalculable risk for spectators” and explained “it is hardly possible to get to the Arena”.

“Under these conditions, it cannot be guaranteed that the security personnel and other stadium staff necessary for the game to go ahead can get to the Allianz Arena.”

“We regret very much that we need to cancel the game, but the safety of our fans and Union Berlin supporters is the absolute priority,” Bayern CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen said in a statement.

The German Football Leagues (DFL), which administers the Bundesliga, confirmed the cancellation on Saturday and said a new date for the match would be communicated soon.
