SF Deltas soccer match versus Miami FC postponed due to Hurricane Irma

A professional soccer match between the San Francisco Deltas and Miami FC that was scheduled for Saturday at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco has been postponed because of Hurricane Irma headed toward Florida.

Deltas team officials said Wednesday that the match was delayed so Miami’s players, coaches and staff can be with their families as dangerous weather conditions are expected there this weekend.

“In any situation like this, our primary concern is the safety and well-being of our players, coaches, staff members, fans, and their families,” said Rishi Sehgal, interim commissioner for the North American Soccer League.

“We hope that everyone is able to stay safe during this difficult time,” Sehgal said in a statement.

All tickets that have been issued for the match will be honored for the rescheduled date if it is taking place at Kezar Stadium. Once the new date is set by the league, new tickets will be issued.

Deltas team officials said that if the game is relocated to another stadium, they will follow up regarding next steps for ticketholders.
