New Delhi: The upcoming two games of Real Kashmir FC in the ongoing I-League have been cancelled due to poor weather conditions prevalent in Srinagar.

Real Kashmir were scheduled to face Gokulam FC and Churchill Brothers on Thursday and Sunday at the TRC Polo Synthetic Turf Ground in the city. However, now these two matches stand cancelled as the Srinagar airport is "inoperative" at the moment due to "poor weather conditions".

The Srinagar-based football club started their campaign in the ongoing competition with a 1-1 draw against East Bengal at the Kalyani Municipality Stadium in West Bengal last week. In that game, Gnohere Krizo scored for Real Kashmir while Marcos De La Espada scored for East Bengal.

"With the Srinagar Airport not being operational due to poor weather conditions, Real Kashmir Football Club's first two home matches against Gokulam Kerala FC on December 12, 2019, and Churchill Brothers FC Goa on December 15, 2019, stands postponed," the AIFF said in a press release.

No flight operations took place on Monday morning because of poor visibility. Primary schools were also closed due to adverse weather conditions as heavy fog engulfed most parts of the valley.

"New dates for the matches will be announced soon," the AIFF added.

In last season, Real Kashmir had defied odds to finish a remarkable third with 37 points from 20 games.

Gokulam had reached Bengaluru airport but their connecting flight to Srinagar got cancelled. The team will return to Kozhikode and will prepare for the next match against Mohun Bagan on December 16.
