MLS "snow game" raises controversy as Real Salt Lake triumphs 3-0 despite extreme weather

Posted : 04 March 2024

The United States has a history of hosting sports events in extreme weather, and the recent MLS match between Real Salt Lake and Los Angeles FC showcased this resilience. The game, held in Salt Lake City, is now dubbed the "snow game" due to the adverse weather conditions.


The start of the match was delayed by two hours, and just four minutes into the game, it faced another interruption, this time due to a lightning storm. Despite the challenges, MLS chose to proceed, and the match played out in a field covered in pristine white snow, creating visually stunning photos and videos.


The unique circumstances led the referee to draw lines in the snow to indicate ball placement. Los Angeles FC coach Steve Cherundolo, whose team suffered a 3-0 defeat, expressed dissatisfaction, deeming the conditions "impossible."


He lamented the decision to play, labeling it one of the worst professional sporting events he had witnessed, asserting that the game could and should have been canceled. Despite this, MLS's social media platform celebrated the snow game, expressing their love for such conditions.


Real Salt Lake's social media also featured celebratory posts, likely fueled by their 3-0 lead before halftime. Some of their exuberant fans even celebrated shirtless after the victory.


Had Real Salt Lake lost, the narrative might have mirrored Los Angeles FC's pragmatic "Moving on to the next game" post. Fortunately for the defeated team, the next round features a snowless game as they host Sporting Kansas City.
