FC Buffalo’s scoreless match against Detroit City FC today was halted at the 23:31 mark when match officials observed lightning. After a significant period of time, team and league officials decided to play the game at a later date.

At the moment, we have a tentative reschedule date that we will confirm once stadium availability and other details are nailed down. FC Buffalo will honor all purchased tickets from the postponed game on the reschedule date.

It’s unclear whether the game will be continued with 23:31 on the clock or start anew. We will pass information on to you as soon as possible.

FC Buffalo wishes the best to the great crowd that traveled from Detroit, as well as the proud FCB supporters who weathered the wait. We’re disappointed that the weather didn’t play nice.
