It has been almost three months since Italy’s Serie A club AC Milan announced that it was cancelling a home match against Fiorentina because of the weather, with the players now saying that it is too hot.
The announcement came as a shock, but it is not the first time a football team has cancelled a home game in Italy.
In October 2011, Lazio cancelled a match against AC Milan due to the weather and the following month the Rossoneri cancelled a friendly against Inter Milan due the same conditions.
“We are not going to be playing any games,” the club said in a statement.
“We will take care of it as soon as we can.”
Italian media reports said that the players had complained to the FA about the condition of the pitch.
On Sunday, the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) announced that the club would not be able to host the home game against Fiorenzo, due to high winds.
Italy’s Serie B club, Udinese, said that they would not host the match against Sampdoria because of poor weather.
It was not clear when the Milan-Fiorentinio clash was due to be cancelled, but a statement from the FIGC said that it would be held at 11:00pm on Sunday.
In October, Italy had to cancel the first of two matches against Juventus after the weather worsened.
Both games were scheduled for the same time, on Sunday night, which was also the day of the Champions League semi-final.
However, there was a change to the schedule due to conditions on the pitch, which prompted the Milan team to cancel their scheduled game.
When AC Milan had a record-breaking record of winning Serie A titles, they had to change their schedule to make sure they could host the final, and they had a difficult time getting the Serie A title.
