Tottenham Hotspur Women were due to kick off at home against WSL strugglers Bristol City today at 2:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. GMT. That is no longer happening. Spurs Women announced that the match has been postponed after a pitch inspection found that the surface at The Hive was deemed unsafe to play.

Our home fixture against Bristol City was due to kick off at 7.30pm (UK), however following an early inspection, the pitch was deemed unsafe and we have had to postpone the game. #THWFC ⚪ #COYS
It’s hardly been the first time that a Spurs match has been postponed this season, but the majority of the time it’s been for COVID-19 reasons. This appears to be just a good old fashioned frozen pitch, which stinks but is kind of a relief.
Spurs manager Rehanne Skinner said on Twitter that she’s disappointed that they can’t play today, hinting at the difficulty the team has had in creating momentum with so many postponements this season and with just less than half the season remaining.
Really disappointed that we can’t host Bristol this evening. The challenges we have faced with the volume of cancellations - all for different reasons, won’t stop us coming back ready after the international break, ready to get back to winning ways for the fans #COYS https://t.co/BfUnVdnfVk— Rehanne Skinner (@rehanne_skinner) February 10, 2021
Tottenham’s next match isn’t until February 28 when they host Everton at The Hive.
