Hi everyone

Iím hoping one or two of you might be able to help me in my quest.

Amongst the many stats I keep, one is a list of abandoned games. In the 1st instance, back to WWII but eventually back to the beginning of time!. Many official & unofficial sites donít list these so it is somewhat of a challenge.

Abandoned as opposed to postponed games, so the game has to have actually kicked off.

Back in the day, many were abandoned due to bad light or fog, not so these days, mainly waterlogged pitches or snow now.

See attachment for Crystal Palace list!

Please let me know if you can add to this list. Iím sure there must be a few more. If you can correct any of the information I have, that would also be appreciated. Anything Iíve left out eg. score at time the game was stopped.

Thanks
Peter

Hi. The only abandoned game I remember going to was home to Blackpool when I was a teenager. Quick Google shows ticket for sale ; 28 December 1968. Think the score was 1-1 at the time. We skated into early 1-0 lead. Abandoned because of icy pitch.Think it was abandoned at, our just after, halftime - so no refunds!!!

Last night when the ref's comms kit wasn't working at half-time, I hoped they'd abandon that and allow the score to stand

so in 1952 we were losing 3-1 away to Finchley before fog intervened - thank heavens for those toxic pea soupers.

I was at that game and it was viciously cold. There was another game around then which I'd thought was also against Blackpool which was played in dense fog.

I remember the West Ham game in 1997 when the floodlights failed. I was watching it with Terry Neill in his sports bar in Holborn. He was a nice bloke.
