Arsenal’s FA WSL game against Reading, that was due to take place on Sunday, has been postponed.
With all the talk around Arsenal’s game against Spurs on Sunday possibly being postponed, nobody even seem to notice that Reading requested their game against Arsenal be postponed.
Their wish has been granted.
Arsenal said in a statement, “We can confirm that Sunday’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture against Reading has been postponed after the Football Association approved a request from Reading.
“A revised date for the fixture will be announced in due course – all tickets will remain valid for the rearranged fixture, but the club will refund any ticket holders who are unable to attend on the revised date.
“All ticket holders will be contacted in due course with further details.”
Reading, meanwhile, said, “Reading FC can confirm that their Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture against Arsenal on Sunday 16th January has been postponed.
“In light of the increased rate of transmissions from the Omicron variant of COVID-19, the FA will review the circumstances surrounding the postponement and continue work with affected clubs to assist them throughout this challenging period. A rearranged date for the fixture will be announced in due course.
“We apologise for any inconvenience this causes to supporters planning to attend this fixture. However, the health, safety and welfare of players, the coaching teams and club staff remains of paramount importance and we would like to wish all those affected a swift and full recovery.
“We will update supporters on details of the rearranged fixture once a new date and kick-off time has been confirmed.”
