Weather not promising, but Olimpija will definitely play the cup match in Grosuplje: The most likely scenario is a match on artificial turf
Have a nice holiday? Well, if you’re at home… But if you’re dealing outside the walls of your home, we really don’t envy you. The country is once again in the grip of heavy rainfall, which is also making life difficult for football clubs. On Tuesday, a few matches were played in the Pivovarna Union Cup, which will continue on Thursday, when the Olimpija wil be away in Grosuplje.
But it is more than obvious that the holiday in Dolenjska will be curtailed. The main pitch, where the NK Brinje Grosuplje hosts its matches, is under water. The final decision on whether the match against Olimpija will be played on the pitch will be made on Wednesday morning. But the outlook is not good… However, it is worth noting that the clearing will definitely not be cancelled. Why? Quite simply: there are no reserve dates. The Slovenian Football Federation has made it clear – the match must be played no matter what.
There were several ideas on how to carry it out despite the bad weather. Olimpija proposed to play in an empty Stožice, which doesn’t go down too well with the hosts. One of the ideas was to move the match to Kodeljevo, but Slovan, which is based there, did not agree with this idea.
If the main pitch in Grosuplje is not in good enough condition for the match, it will most likely be played on the nearby artificial turf pitch! Olimpija is not enthusiastic about this, but that’s the charm of the cup competition: playing on surfaces you’re not used to… One way and another.
