Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Bolton Wanderers has been postponed due to the heavy snowfall in the north London area.

Arsenal had been confident the match would go ahead, but prolonged heavy snowfall during the course of Wednesday afternoon left Emirates Stadium officials with no choice but to postpone the encounter.

A statement on Arsenal’s website read: “Despite making every effort to stage tonight’s match against Bolton Wanderers, the sudden and unpredicted adverse change in weather conditions in the Highbury area has left us no choice but to postpone the fixture.”

“We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused and wish to state that this decision was not made lightly and supporters’ safety and travel arrangements were major factors in our thinking.”

“The Club will announce the revised date for this match in due course and all tickets currently held will be valid for the rearranged fixture.”
