Livingston vs Aberdeen postponed as plastic pitch freezes |  Football News

Livingston’s Scottish Premiership home game against Aberdeen has been postponed after the artificial pitch at Tony Macaroni Arena froze.

Livingston said club staff worked on the pitch for around a day and a half but were unable to keep the plastic surface from freezing due to the cold in the area.

Images shared on social media show masses of snow piled up around the stadium, with the frozen pitch cleared.

In a statement on Twitter, Livingston said: “Despite the best efforts of all club staff over the past 36 hours or so, today’s game with Aberdeen has fallen victim to freezing conditions and has been postponed.

“We will announce the postponed date once confirmed.”

Livingston is in great shape, winning each of his last six games in all competitions since David Martindale took over as manager.

They currently sit sixth in the Scottish Premiership, with 24 points in 19 games.
