Official: Genoa derby snowed off

The Genoa derby has been called off after heavy snowfall on the city made play impossible.

The referee, Emidio Morganti, had a tour of the pitch at Marassi and made the decision to call off the game.

Sampdoria and Genoa were set to face off in the final Serie A match of 2010, but the conditions are too dangerous.

There is controversy, however, as there were no plastic sheets put down to protect the field throughout the day.

It is continuing to snow heavily in Genoa and the date when the derby will be played has not yet been confirmed.
