Updated: Phoenix women’s game delayed till Sunday due to flight cancellation

posted in: News

The Wellington Phoenix women’s A-League fixture against Brisbane Roar has been rescheduled from Saturday to Sunday because of flight problems across the Tasman.

The team’s direct flight from Wellington on Friday was cancelled due to the threat of thunderstorms in Queensland.

It left the Nix scrambling to find a trans-Tasman flight that could accommodate the entire touring party.

They flew to Christchurch late on Friday after securing seats on Saturday’s 6.10am flight out of the Garden City.

That flight was then delayed by three and a half hours, meaning the team was to arrive in Brisbane late morning (local time).

Due to the unforeseen circumstances, the Australian Professional Leagues (APL) agreed to reschedule the fixture.
