Townsville Returns to Fire Pit for Double Header with Perth

March 17, 2022 | Townsville Fire news

It’s taken until the final round but the Fire will finally play Perth! Not once but twice, at home. While the players were grateful Townsville Stadium came to the rescue last weekend after the Entrainment Centre temporarily closed, their stoked to finish their campaign at the Fire Pit.

The hosts have continued to represent our region with pride and passion, pushing through what’s been a tough end to the season. And you can guarantee they won’t die wondering when they face a Lynx side sitting second on the ladder. Fire Coach Shannon Seebohm concedes key injuries in the run in to the playoffs all but ended Townsville’s hopes of securing a top four spot.
“But that’s not an excuse it’s just something that we’ve had to deal with and yeah obviously disappointed, definitely not where we thought we’d be this season, but now we just need to keep fighting and finish on a really high note.”

The General Manager would love to see our underdogs defy the odds this weekend. Sam Pascoe is encouraging fans to fill the Fire Pit, particularly given it’ll be their final chance to do so this season.
“We’ve had some really amazing crowds this year despite several schedule reshuffles and last weekend’s late location change. We have just missed out on that top 4 spot, but moving to the Entrainment Centre has been super successful in terms of attendance. And the atmosphere at some of our games has honestly given me goosebumps.”
Pascoe’s proud of the support the club continues to receive.
“We are really privileged we get to play in front of the best WNBL fans in the country. The girls get inspired when they walk out to a sea of orange, and they’ll need all that inspiration against a really formidable opponent.”
