Germany-Denmark Match Delayed Due to Extreme Weather

Jun 30 2024 Share

Germany’s last 16 match against Denmark was suspended due to extreme weather at Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund. A lightning storm, accompanied by heavy rain and hail, forced referee Michael Oliver to halt the game and direct the players off the pitch.

As the storm intensified, the stadium’s roof began to leak, drenching supporters with cascading water. Initially, the players waited near the dugouts before being sent to the dressing rooms for safety.

After a 23-minute delay, the match resumed following a brief warm-up. During the break, some Germany fans used red, yellow, and black cards—originally for the national flag—as makeshift shelters. Meanwhile, two Denmark fans were seen dancing under one of the waterfalls formed by the heavy rain.

After 20 minutes, the players returned to the pitch for a short warm-up and the game restarted, resulting in a 2-0 win for Germany.

Albeit chaotic, last night’s decision definitely made for a memorable Euros 2024 story.
