Orlando-Philadelphia moved to Sunday due to weather
Saturday’s match between the Philadelphia Union and visiting Orlando City in Chester, Pa., was postponed due to inclement weather and rescheduled for Sunday.
The original 7 p.m. ET start was twice pushed back due to storms, lightning, and heavy winds in the area. After an hour’s delay, Major League Soccer officials decided on the postponement after weather forecasts showed no sign that conditions would improve.
The Union and Lions were set to play the second end of a home-and-home series within a four-day span. Philadelphia earned a 3-1 victory in Orlando on Wednesday.
Sunday’s game is scheduled to kick off at 4:30 p.m.
