Vancouver-RSL match postponed due to field conditions

The Vancouver Whitecaps were forced to postpone their MLS match against Real Salt Lake on Saturday because the grass field put in place for Monday's friendly against Manchester City was waterlogged by heavy rain in the Vancouver area.

As a result, the MLS match has to be re-scheduled, and the Real Salt Lake fans who made the trip north to watch their team play were left with no game to watch. The decision was ultimately an MLS decision, made in conjunction with the teams involved.

There is no word on when the match will be replayed, but it could take months to re-schedule given Real Salt Lake's loaded schedule.

What do you think of this development? Think Vancouver or MLS should re-imburse fans who made the trip? Wonder if focusing too much on the Manchester City friendly led to the ignoring of an MLS match?
