Shkendija vs. Vardar gets postponed again

Just like the previous time, the match between Shkendija and Vardar has been postponed due to security concerns.

Early Saturday morning, shots rang out in the city of Kumanovo between the police and an unidentified terrorist group. The situation is very tense there and around the country, so the Macedonian federation has decided to postpone the Shkendija vs. Vardar match, already a high risk encounter in its own right.

As a reminder, Shkendija currently plays its home games in Kumanovo since their stadium in Tetovo is undergoing renovations. FFM released a press release that the game will now be played on Tuesday, May 12. However, the game will not take place in Kumanovo. Instead, it will be played in another city (still unknown at this time).

Furthermore, it is a rule in Macedonia that games in the final three rounds must start at the same time. That goes separately for the championship play-offs and the relegation play-offs. Thus, since Shkendija vs. Vardar was postponed to Tuesday, that meant that Rabotnichki vs. Metalurg and Renova vs. Sileks (the other two games among the top-6 clubs) would also be moved to that day.

The two fixtures of the relegation play-offs, Pelister vs. Bregalnica and Turnovo vs. Teteks, will be unaffected. They will start at the same time tomorrow, at 16:30 CET to be exact.
