Inclement weather has forced MLS to alter plans for one of this weekend’s matches.

The New England Revolution announced on Friday that Saturday’s match against Orlando City at Gillette Stadium has been postponed due to weather conditions. Saturday’s forecast is calling for¬†extremely cold temperatures along with wind chills that are expected¬†to take temperatures below 10 degrees.

As a result, the Revs and Orlando City will face off at Gillette Stadium on a rescheduled date of Sept. 2.

“All of us involved in this decision believe this is in the best interest of the fans, the players, and the game,” said Revolution President Brian Bilello. “We at the Revolution look forward to seeing all our fans at the Orlando game on September 2.”

The cancellation will see the Revs play their home opener against Minnesota United on March 25.
