D.C. United-New York Red Bulls match postponed until Thursday

Major League Soccer has postponed tonight's Eastern Conference Semifinal match between D.C. United and the New York Red Bulls due heavy snow accumulation. The second leg of the two-game, total goals series is now scheduled for Thursday at 7:30pm ET at Red Bull Arena. The game will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network and TSN2.

“All the indications we had were for inclement weather, but certainly not a snowfall of this magnitude,” said MLS Executive Vice President Nelson Rodriguez. “We did our best to try and stay ahead of [the snowfall], but unfortunately couldn’t. In the end, you can’t jeopardize the safety of the athletes and the game itself deserves a better field for the magnitude of the game.”

Tickets to Wednesday's match will be honored Thursday. Fans with questions may call 877.RB.SOCCER.

As a result of tonight's postponement, the first leg of the Eastern Conference Championship has been moved to Sunday, Nov. 11 at 4 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.

D.C. and New York are tied 1-1 on aggregate after the first leg on Saturday. The team that advances will play in the Eastern Conference Championship and face the winner of the Houston-Kansas City match taking place this evening.
