Heavy rain and storms in the Tampa Bay area have cancelled tonight's match between the Lakeland Tropics and Tampa Bay Rowdies U23 side scheduled for the Waters Avenue soccer complex.

No make up date has yet been announced, but the game will not be played tomorrow, according to Tropics General Manager Andrew Ross. Lakeland has a road match Saturday at The Villages SC, and then is on the road again next Wednesday, June 21 against the South Florida Surf.

The Tropics will return home for a key showdown match with FC Miami City at Bryant Stadium on June 24. Tickets are available at www.lakelandtropics.com or by calling the team office at 863-204-0101.
