With ‘Storm Ciara’ causing havoc in the United Kingdom, a Premier League fixture between Manchester City and West Ham United had been postponed due to adverse weather conditions, last week.
The Eithad Stadium bound fixture, originally scheduled for February 9, will now be played on February 19, Premier League confirmed in a statement.
“Manchester City’s Premier League home match against West Ham United has been rescheduled for Wednesday, 19 February with a 19:30 GMT kick-off time,” the statement read.
West Ham United, in a statement, announced that they’ll be providing a free coach for fans who wish to travel and attend the game.
“West Ham are offering free coach travel to the match for all of their fans wishing to attend,” the statement read.
Furthermore, fans who wish not to attend the game can avail full refund at the clubs’s ticket office at the London Stadium.
All Premier League teams have been granted a two-week winter break, but the match will force both teams to come out of their break prematurely.
Manchester City currently sits second in the league table, 22 points behind leaders Liverpool, who are still unbeaten in the tournament.
City have a busy fixture list with the Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and most importantly the Champions League round-of-16 tie against Real Madrid.
West Ham, on the other hand, are in a battle to avoid the drop as they sit inside the bottom three in the table.
