Men’s match moved to Sydney

The Wellington Phoenix’s round nine Isuzu UTE A-League men’s match against the Newcastle Jets has been moved from Wollongong to Sydney.

This Saturday’s game is now scheduled to be played at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium ahead of a Liberty A-League women’s match between Sydney FC and Perth Glory.

The men’s match will still kick-off at 5:05pm AEDT (7:05pm NZT).

The move has been made as the television broadcaster is facing staffing issues as a result of the Omicron outbreak in New South Wales.
