Volcanic Eruption Causes Cancellation Of Soccer Match In Ventura County

Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 10:49am

You’ve heard of sporting events being delayed by rain, but nature has thrown a real loop to a soccer match originally scheduled for tonight in Ventura County.

The Premiere Development League team Ventura County Fusion was supposed to host Mexican Soccer champion team FC Puebla tonight.

But, the eruption of a volcano east of Mexico City has created a huge cloud of ash, grounding flights in the region.

The Fusion is hoping to reschedule the match with the two time Mexican soccer championship team.
