Derby’s postponed Sky Bet Championship fixture with Cardiff has been re-arranged for Tuesday, April 24.
The Pride Park club announced that the original match had been called off on Sunday morning due to heavy snowfall overnight which had left the surrounding areas at the stadium "in an unsafe condition for supporters, staff and officials".
On Tuesday, Cardiff CEO Ken Choo called on Derby to reimburse his club's 2,700 travelling fans after the postponement but both clubs have released statements confirming that a new date for the fixture has been set.
A Derby statement said: "The match was originally due to be played on Sunday 18th March but was postponed due to safety reasons as a result of severe weather conditions. It has been agreed that the game will be played on Tuesday 24th April (7:45pm kick-off).
"Tickets purchased for the original fixture remain valid for home and away supporters."
A statement on the Cardiff website said: "As part of ongoing discussions with the EFL regarding the postponement of Sunday's fixture at Derby County FC, we can confirm that a rearranged date for the game has been agreed to our satisfaction.
"The Bluebirds will travel to Pride Park on Tuesday, 24th April for a 7.45pm kick-off. Further information regarding ticketing will follow in due course."
