Rain and football are usually a good mix.
There is nothing better than a wet and windy night fixture to separate the kids from the adults.
However, too much rain and it becomes impossible to play.
See below for an example:
On Saturday evening the second quarter final of the Women's European Championship was due to be played at the Sparta Stadium in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
The kick-off between Germany and Denmark was scheduled for 7.45pm but a torrential downpour put a stop to that.
Officials delayed kick-off by 15 minutes while volunteers and ground staff did their best to get the pitch in a playable condition.
Unfortunately the weather meant that they failed in their efforts - but they did succeed in providing the internet with some top quality content in the process.
