Clubs can have their ground to any standard they want, sometimes there's bad weather and pitches are frozen for weeks. It happens in the SPFL too. Camelon did try to move the game - it was supposed to be at Dunpiace tonight - but funnily enough it was still frosty there.

But might not have been when the tie was first postponed. All the other ties have progressed.

Don't they look at forecasts. Camelon could have maeby had enquired about moving it to. Say Herriot watt indoor.

A few games played indoors a few years back in the junior Scottish.

Drop ball every time the ball hit the roof.

Yellow warning for snow tomorrow night up north, anyone with a game up there can forget it for the weekend.

Generally not, would need board to agree.

 No match in the Competition shall take place at any stadium where the playing area is covered or partially covered by a roof or other form of canopy without the prior consent of the Board.

Yellow snow is always a warning.

Sorry, I don't mean is it allowed under normal circumstances, I mean is it allowed under the covid restrictions? Would have thought outdoor would have been very much preferred.

Ah ok.  From what I can gather from A brief look at the tier guidelines indoor professional contact sport is allowed from level 2.  So no,  can’t be done legally.

Edit- done a little more digging,  professional exceptions can be granted for boxing etc at any level,  however these seem quite specific and need an agreement from Scot gov.  I highly doubt they’d allow a riskier activity just to avoid a few days or even weeks delay to an event.  Given the hoops already needing jumped through I highly doubt anyone at the SFA is thinking ‘ we really need this cup tie to go ahead,  let’s go put ourselves under additional strain and discuss with Scot gov over what additional steps we can put in place to allow games to go ahead indoor.

Huntly's equaliser is a thing of beauty. Think Phillipe Albert, but better. It's a 1 minute.

No idea m8

There's nothing in the legislation to prohibit indoor professional sport, and we've had snooker, tennis and darts during lockdown restrictions. The Scottish rugby team have trained at Oriam and I think the Scotland football team probably have too.
