Both the W-League and A-League clash between Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory have been called off after torrential rainfall in Sydney.

The Australian Professional Leagues has announced that both the W-League and A-League match that were scheduled for Saturday afternoon, March 20, have been postponed "due to the amount of rainfall at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium overnight and this morning."

APL Commissioner Greg O'Rourke said that every opportunity was given for the match to proceed based on the forecast. 

"Unfortunately the field has been unable to drain the amount of rain that has fallen at the venue., “said O’Rourke. 

"A decision in regards to the matches at Newcastle No.2 Stadium and Campbelltown Stadium will be made shortly”, concluded O'Rourke.
