Floods force Brisbane Roar away from home ground

11:25 pm on 12 January 2011

Australian football's A-League pacesetters the Brisbane Roar are set to be forced off a waterlogged Suncorp Stadium for Sunday's clash with the Wellington Phoenix.

Queensland's premier football venue is underwater and has been closed indefinitely.

The league's congested schedule a month out from the play-offs means there is more chance the match will be played at a different venue rather than being cancelled or postponed.

The stadium managers, the club and the Football Federation Australia are meeting to discuss alternative arrangements.
