In an age when authorities and promoters attempt to control every aspect of sport, the weather remains one of the key areas of chance. The response to weather problems has been varied: rules have been changed, clothing and equipment altered and science applied to playing surfaces. Protection has been sought from insurance companies and new methods of adjudication such as the Pools Panel in football and the Duckworth/Lewis system in cricket have been introduced to provide match results. So why is there only one stadium in Britain with a retractable roof and why has there been as much public debate about the symbolism and tradition of the twin towers at Wembley as the quality and comfort of the new stadium? This book takes a look at how fog, rain, snow, frost, storm - and occasionally sunshine - have affected sport in Britain, and at the ways in which sport has attempted to combat the elements.
