AL Hilal (Sud):Es Tunis (Tun) african champions league 1999: played under unhuman conditions, the sudanese team wanted to win the game no matter how, so they programmed the game at 2pm, although it was 46 degrees the game was so fast and so full with events, final score 3/3

18/1/2000 Israel Toto Cup Quarter final (similar to League Cup in many countries):
Hapoel Haifa vs Hapoel Ironi Rishon Lezion 1-1 asdet.
Both teams stood for penalty shootouts but the wind was so strong that the referee stopped the game at 1-0 to Rishon-Lezion because the players couldn't stabilize the ball on the penalty spot...
A replay was played a week later.

07-12-1966 Ajax 5-1 Liverpool, played in heavy fog. It is said most of the crowd haven't seen any goal scored.

23-01-1980 Spain 1-0 Netherlands, played at a waterlogged pitch in Vigo. When electricity falled out after 18 minutes French referee Bacou decided the game will be off as the lights are not on after 15 minutes. Which did not happen, so Dutch players took a shower and went to the bus to go home. But after 66 min minutes the lights were working again and the Dutch players were ordered to play the remaining 72 minutes as the Spaniards insisted the game must go on anyhow.

I bet the Netherland players didn't enjoy the rest of the match.

They didn't enjoy the whole match. Dutch FA was not amused as Spanish FA decided to play the match in Vigo, where's a lot of rainfall in the winter. Dutch FA preferred to play in Valencia, Barcelona or Madrid.

The match Estudiantes de La Plata-Milan 2-1, valid for the Intercontinental Cup 1969, was one of the most violent events in the history of football. In fact, after the first goal scored by Milan, the Argentinean players lost their minds and began a never-ending brawl. After the game, three Estudiantes players were even arrested. During a recent interview, former Milan striker Pierino Prati declared: «That night we were very close to a tragedy. We have been very lucky to safe our lives». He didn't exaggerate - please take a look at Milan forward Nestor Combin after that match...

I remember watching a turkey cup game in January 2011. It was mad. The whole pitch was covered with snow and ice. Players were sliding like in Ice Hockey. And the game wasn't postponed or something. It ended 0-0.

Remember this as well. Madness. Watch after 30th. sec.

Clearly the air conditioned stadium isn't ready yet...
Yesterday Poland vs England was postponed until today because of a waterlogged pitch - ridiculous because the stadium has a roof but they decided not to close it...
