Game postponed – Sydney Flames v Bendigo Spirit

December 28, 2021 | WNBL news

Tomorrow nights game between Sydney Uni Flames and Bendigo Spirit has been postponed after a positive COVID case within the Sydney Uni Flames team.

All Flames players and staff are double vaccinated.

In accordance with NSW Health protocols, the Flames team member is in isolation and the remainder of the group are deemed casual contacts and will undergo further PCR testing before resuming training.

The delay in accessing the results of tests has meant the game cannot go ahead as scheduled.

WNBL have decided to postpone the game in line with the NSW Health and WNBL COVID health and safety protocols.

“It is a concern that the league has another game impacted by COVID, however the health and safety of the players, coaches, team staff and fans is of the utmost importance”, said Mark Quinn, Basketball Australia Head of Competition & Events.

The Sydney Uni Flames will continue to follow the advice of government and health authorities.

The WNBL will work with both teams to reschedule the game to a later date in the season.
