Frozen pitch at Meadow Lane

20 January 2024

This afternoon’s Sky Bet League Two fixture against Stockport County has been postponed due to a frozen pitch.

Following persistently cold temperatures, which have fallen as low as -7 in Nottingham this week, the Meadow Lane playing surface is heavily frozen despite frost covers and heat lamps being used, as well as groundstaff working through the night.

Following a preliminary inspection by an EFL-appointed official yesterday, it was determined that the match referee should assess the surface at 8.30am this morning.

As the frost is well established and the sun cannot reach all areas of the playing surface, the referee had little confidence that today’s temperatures would improve conditions sufficiently for the match to safely go ahead and it was agreed that an early decision was sensible in the interests of both sets of supporters and their clubs.

All match tickets and hospitality packages will remain valid for the rearranged fixture, with refunds being offered once a new date is confirmed.

Barrow visit Meadow Lane next weekend for what will be Stuart Maynard's first match in charge. Tickets are available online here.

This will be the final opportunity for season ticket holders who haven't used their Bring a Friend voucher to buy an extra ticket for £1 by calling 0115 955 7120 or visiting our ticket office, which is open until 3pm today and from 9am on Monday.
