Tonight’s match between the Western New York Flash and Seattle Reign took place on a ridiculously-configured pitch at the home of the AAA Rochester Red Wings due to a previously-scheduled concert by TLC at the Flash’s home stadium.

Both teams play in the NWSL, the top-division league for women’s soccer in the United States; indeed, both teams feature several players from the U.S. women’s national team. The pitch, according to SI, was 100x58; that’s barely bigger than an NFL gridiron.

Update (12:04 a.m.):

Timothy Burke is formerly Deadspin's Video Director.
