Last Saturday, a J-League match between FC Tokyo and Vissel Kobe had to be played despite a massive rainstorm that happened the night before which caused the field to become waterlogged in certain points.

The match ended with Vissel Kobe winning by the score of 1-0 but it is clear that precipitation was the true winner at the end of the day.
