"Call off" is a phrasal verb used when an event is not going to happen at the planned time. You will hear it used in relation to football matches which are often called off due to bad weather. Call off isn't as permanent as cancel. Events which are cancelled are not rearranged. Events which are called off often take place at a later date.
