With the snow continuing to fall in the stadium with less than an hour to go until kick-off, the volume of snow coverage on the pitch was deemed too much for the game to be played.
Having earlier checked the pitch around lunchtime, match officials had waited for Antonio Conte and his Tottenham team to arrive at the ground shortly before 1 pm before a decision over the game was made.
"Game Postponed Due to concerns with the playing surface and surrounding areas, it's been deemed that the game can't go ahead safely. #UTC," Burnley FC tweeted.
