Extreme weather forces Houston Dynamo to call off Man City friendly

Extreme weather conditions in Texas have forced the friendly game between Houston Dynamo and Manchester City to be cancelled.

The game between the MLS outfit and the Premier League, which was scheduled for Thursday night, was cancelled due to an unplayable pitch at the BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston.

"Tonight's BBVA Compass Dynamo Charities Cup has been cancelled," read a statement on the Dynamo's official website.

"Late this afternoon, officials determined that the field did not meet their expectations and therefore have cancelled the match."
