The all heated match was supposed to be played on Sunday 8th September, 2019. On this faithful day, it rained from around 11 am to 12 pm. The continuing drizzling around Kumasi and its environs made it difficult for even fans to be in the stadium.
After the match has been played for 10 minutes, some dignitaries went to the pitch to inspect it.
The very poor pitch conditions could not withstand a heavy downpour. Grounds were all wet and soft making it more impossible to play on.
