Why every Premier League game is in real danger of being cancelled this weekend

There’s a storm coming Mr Wayne; better batten down the hatches.

And no, Batman isn’t there to save the day this time.

The Premier League and the UK in general are at real risk of being subject to havoc this weekend due to an imminent arctic storm.


Forecasters believe eight inches of snow could cover Britain this week and temperatures could reach as low as -10°C.

The icy conditions have caused problems on the continent over the winter and the cold snap is set to make it’s way to Britain.

The Met Office has issued a snow warning for Scotland, North Wales and northern England for later this week.



They said: “Next weekend we could be into minus double figures overnight, so a big change in the weather on the way and possibly the coldest spell of winter so far.”

The news puts this weekend’s Premier League games in real jeopardy, with some bookmakers offering 4/1 for a top-flight game to be called off.

Has the weather not seen the Super Sunday line up this weekend?

With Manchester United and Liverpool crossing swords at Old Trafford, it would be typical if it decided to go all The Day after Tomorrow on us this week of all weeks.
