Japan cancels all soccer games for March
Soccer in Japan has been put on hold for at least the rest of this month as the country deals with the horrors from Friday's massive earthquake and tsunami.
J-League President Kazumi Ohigashi told media members in Tokyo on Monday that 41 games scheduled to take place in Japan, including this past weekend's slate, have been postponed and no date has been set for a return to the game.
He added that Vegalta Sendai club President Yoichi Shirohata told him that the team's stadium and facilities were in ruins and the players had disbanded.
“They're struggling to live over there," Ohigashi said. "It's not about training or the game.”
