The Seattle Sounders (1-1) won’t play the Montreal Impact (0-2) at 1 p.m. Saturday. Major League Soccer said Friday that forecasted heavy snow and cold postponed the game 24 hours to 1 p.m. Sunday at Olympic Stadium. That start time is also weather permitting.
Saturday’s forecast is for four to six inches of snow. The stadium roof can only handle an inch of snow.
Montreal, which holds a 2-0 all-time lead against the Sounders, started the season winless, dropping a pair of road contests at FC Dallas and Houston. The Sounders look to rebound from a 2-1 loss to Toronto FC Saturday.
Earlier Friday, MLS announced the suspension, for two games, and fine of Seattle midfielder and U.S. National Team captain Clint Dempsey for his actions during Saturday’s loss to Toronto FC last week.
