The representatives of Bosnia and Herzegovina were supposed to arrive in the Moravian capital on Friday, but the unfavorable weather in their country caused the cancellation of all nearby flights. “Despite the very intensive cooperation of both associations in the search for alternative transport options, it was not possible to find a solution in which the visiting players would be ready to start the match with minimal risk of injury after a long journey of twelve to fourteen hours,” said the Czech association.
