Snow delays Seattle-Montreal to Sunday

MONTREAL -- The Seattle Sounders game scheduled for Saturday against the Impact has been postponed until Sunday because of expected snow in Montreal.

The Olympic Stadium roof is at risk with more than one inch of snow accumulation.

The Impact's home-opener is being delayed by a day because of the fear of snow accumulation on the Olympic Stadium roof. The game will be played on Sunday at 4 p.m. ET.

Due to the instability of the stadium dome, which is in need of replacement or repair, events cannot be held there if more than an inch of snow is forecast. An accumulation of close to 6 inches has been predicted.

The Impact's first three regular season games are scheduled to be played at home, including a match on April 5 against the New York Red Bulls, and on April 12 against the Chicago Fire.

There are also two Toronto Blue Jays preseason baseball games slated for the stadium next week.
