Statement on postponed Anzac Day match

Brisbane Roar flags

Brisbane Roar joins its members and fans in expressing disappointment over the forced postponement of its scheduled Anzac Day home game against Perth Glory.

“It is deeply disappointing that we are unable to proceed with Sunday’s fixture following the announcements made yesterday by the Western Australian and Queensland Governments,” Brisbane Roar CEO David Pourre said.

“Unfortunately, with no exemptions granted for our opponents to enter the state and take part in the match without a lengthy quarantine, the decision was taken out of our hands.

“Everyone involved with the Club was extremely excited and proud to host another match on Anzac Day, an occasion that has great significance for our country.

“Through Ticketek, Brisbane Roar will be issuing refunds to all ticket holders for this fixture. This process will be complete over the coming week. I thank all of our supporters and partners for their patience and understanding.

“The postponement of course presents another fixturing challenge for our A-League team, but we will tackle that fully united and with a strong focus on continuing our positive recent results.”

The Roar’s next scheduled A-League fixture is away to Central Coast Mariners on Wednesday, 28 April.

Warren Moon’s men then return home to take on Wellington Phoenix at Moreton Daily Stadium on Saturday, 1 May. Kick-off is at the family friendly time of 5:05pm and tickets are on sale now.
