FC Bayern Munich's Bundesliga match against Union Berlin on Saturday afternoon (15:30 CEST) has been cancelled. This was announced by the Munich transport company in the morning. The reason for the cancellation is the onset of winter in southern Germany, which is also causing heavy snowfall in the greater Munich area.

Previously, the authorities had already suspended rail traffic in the greater Munich area. Traffic on the roads had also come to a partial standstill.
