The sold-out, nationally televised game in New York was rescheduled to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4.
Also postponed: Sunday’s Philadelphia Union-New England Revolution until Sept. 7, while Saturday’s D.C. United-Portland contest was brought forward to 2 p.m. from 7 p.m.
“With the safety of our fans and clubs top of mind, and thanks to the cooperation of our clubs and broadcast partners, Major League Soccer has rescheduled two games that were originally set for this weekend,” said Nelson Rodriguez, Executive Vice President of Competition and Game Operations. “We expect that Hurricane Irene will likely cause hazardous travel and unplayable conditions throughout the Northeast. We appreciate our fans’ understanding of these decisions and the media’s assistance in communicating the message.”
