Soccer Mommy postpones Club Penguin show after servers crash due to high demand


Soccer Mommy it would appear has a very loyal following of Club Penguin users as she crashed the site’s servers when trying to hold a show.

So many fans flocked to the site to watch the performance that they crashed the serves and left Sophie Allison, AKA Soccer Mommy, unable to perform.

The virtual gig was due to take place on April 3rd with a bonus Q&A session for Allison but the game site crashed after a huge influx of fans made their way to catch a glimpse of Soccer Mommy.

“Hey guys, really sorry but we’ve got to postpone the club penguin event,” Allison wrote on her Facebook page.

“So many of you showed up that it overloaded the servers. Working on a solution and we’ll have an update on a new date for this soon!”

The show was put in place to not only connect Soccer Mommy with her fans following the release of her new album Color Theory but also to combat the loss of shows in promotion of the album due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease was first officially identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei in China. As of April 3rd, more than 1,018,920 cases of COVID-19 have been officially confirmed but the actual number is thought to be much higher due to substantial under-reporting of cases.

With more than 53,292 people having died from the virus, COVID-19 has now spread into more than 180 other countries—including mainland Europe, South America and many more. Given the exponential growth in cases in countries like Italy, Spain, Germany, France and the UK, the WHO stated that Europe became the epicentre of the pandemic after the strict lockdown in China saw reduced numbers. Now, however, as the virus continues to spread aggressively across The United States—who have more confirmed cases than any other country—the epicentre of coronavirus is expected to be officially changed to North America.
