Has there been any confirmation from Ticketek about refunds?

You'll be lucky to get Ticketek to even acknowledge the game didn't occur

Dear ticket holder,

Tonight’s #SydneyDerby has been postponed due to an unplayable pitch following the extreme weather experienced in Sydney over the last 36 hours, and further torrential rain forecast right throughout Saturday.

A morning pitch inspection conducted by match officials, representatives from the FFA, Netstrata Jubilee Stadium and Sydney FC concluded the pitch unplayable and the decision was made to postpone the match.

Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Danny Townsend said: “Obviously we are disappointed to have to postpone the game, but the safety of the players is paramount and the pitch was in no state to host the game due to the amount of rain we have had.

Discussions will take place between Sydney FC, Western Sydney Wanderers and Football Federation Australia and other stakeholders regarding a re-arranged date for the game.

Ticket purchasers are advised to hold onto their tickets and Sydney FC will be in touch in due course regarding ticket details once the rescheduled fixture is announced.

Yeah, good luck with that.

 

They're presuming you want to go to the rescheduled match. I'd be demanding my money back. Thank goodness I had something on last Saturday and couldn't go otherwise I'd be blowing up deluxe. F@#$ waiting for SFC to contact you.

Don’t expect Sydney to do anything that is beneficial or reasonable. It was them who decided to make away bay tickets pick up only. Completely waste of time.

I suspect the game will be rescheduled for the weekend of 29th Feb & 1st March when we were expecting to have a bye. I may know more tonight

We'll probably end up playing for double points at Bankwest next month

Look, I think the only reasonable outcome is to mark the game as played and just give us the 3 points. 

Test cricket rules. If the series is drawn the previous winners retain the trophy.

How hArd is it play it midweek when they don’t Have acl game 

god knows the fixture pile up we dealt with when we went to club World Cup 

 

They dont want a late kick off in the dark at Kogarah for this one...

4.30 or 5 kick off preferred ...meaning weekend.

Debate about which weekend and what to shift.

Are you sure that is what it’s about? I think it has more to do with crowds less likely & ratings not going to be great. The AL needs all the wins it can get
