Match Off: Ladies' Palace clash postponed

Sunderland AFC Ladies regret to announce today’s FA Women’s Championship meeting with Crystal Palace at Eppleton has been postponed.


The playing surface in DH5 was deemed to be unplayable due to frozen areas of the pitch, following two pitch inspections today at 12pm and 1pm from the match referee – the second of which at the request of the league.


The pitch had passed an inspection on Saturday morning prior to the Crystal Palace team beginning their travel arrangements, with the go-ahead from both a local referee and officials from both clubs.


A rearranged date for the fixture will be announced in due course – tickets purchased will be once again valid for the rearranged match, or a full refund can be claimed by contacting


SAFC would like to apologise to supporters of both clubs and those who travelled from South London for the fixture for the inconvenience caused.
