During the summer break, those responsible had a new lawn laid in the St. Pöltner NV-Arena, everything seemed ready for the start of the season in the second division with the home game against Rapid II on Friday – and then that: the Bundesliga split on Thursday evening with the fact that the gangway fell through smoothly during the pre-order picking. The risk of injury for those involved in the game is too great, the league wants to inform about a new date as soon as possible.
At SKN St. Pölten it is suspected that a fungal attack has ruined the new lawn. What happens to the playing area will be decided soon. According to the SKN, the game is to be played in an alternative stadium that has yet to be named.
