Caltex Socceroos goalkeeper Danny Vukovic’s league match for Genk against Oostende was forced to be cancelled on Thursday morning (AEDT) after a wild storm hit the region in Belgium.
Wild winds of more than 100km/hour made it impossible to play, with a few roof panels blowing off the stand.
With the weather expected to worsen as it got closer to kick off, security authorities made the decision to postpone the match.
"The fire brigade police and match deal have taken their responsibility and do not want a dead one in the newspaper tomorrow,” KV Oostende managing director Patrick Orlans said.
The Belgian Pro League now heads into a winter break until late January.
But Vukovic and Genk will be back in action earlier with the clash against Oostende rescheduled to January 16.
