Adelaide United Football Club would like to make the following statement regarding our upcoming Hyundai A-League match with Perth Glory on Sunday, 6 December at Coopers Stadium.
Adelaide United Football Club has a very important match this Sunday and we want all of our fans to feel comfortable in the environment that Coopers Stadium provides.
The current forecast for Sunday, as indicated by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, suggests temperatures could reach a maximum of 40°C.
The Club has been in direct contact with a number of Adelaide United members and supporters regarding this issue and we sympathise and understand the concerns being raised.
From the Club’s point of view, the welfare of the players and spectators is, and will always be, paramount. We’ve had numerous conversations with the FFA of the possibility of a time change, but we will update members, sponsors, and fans accordingly as to any possible changes that could take place.
In relation to the comments made by the Red Army this morning, Club Chairman Greg Griffin said: “While we understand the Red Army’s position and stance on matters from earlier today, from the Club’s perspective, we do not want to see our players adversely impacted by the possibility of a smaller attendance at Coopers Stadium, especially at such a crucial time for us.”
The Club will make no further comment on these matters at this time, until the FFA confirm their position
