Big Blue Doubleheader Postponed


We’ve taken the unfortunate decision to postpone this afternoon’s Big Blue double header against Melbourne Victory following the torrential rain which has hit Sydney in the last 12 hours causing a waterlogged surface at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium.

With over 100 millimetres of rain falling and a lot more expected in the coming hours, the pitch is in an unplayable condition forcing the postponement.

Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Danny Townsend explains: “We are desperately disappointed to have to postpone these games, but we have been left with little choice.

“As a spectacle for our members and all football fans, any game played on the pitch in its current condition would not be satisfactory, particularly with the standards the A-League and Westfield W-Leagues have set this season.  There is also the issue of player safety to consider.

“Both games will be re-arranged as soon as possible, especially our Westfield W-League match where we had a fantastic chance to claim the first piece of silverware of the season.

“I’d like to thank our Members and fans, and those of Melbourne Victory who travelled for their understanding; as well as Georges River Council for their efforts to stage the match.

“We’ll be in touch with our Members and ticket purchasers shortly regarding details for the re-arranged matches.”

Please stay tuned for updates in your Members newsletter and on our social media accounts regarding the re-scheduling of both games.

We are working with Melbourne Victory, the Australian Professional Leagues and all other stakeholders to re-schedule both matches at the earliest possible date and will be in touch.
