Football: Port Vale fixture postponed

Date published: 28 December 2021

Rochdale AFC’s Sky Bet League Two fixture against Port Vale on Wednesday 29 December has been postponed.

Due to a number of injuries and positive Covid-19 cases within the squad, Dale does not have a sufficient number of players available to fulfil the game.

Dale has informed the EFL.

In light of the increased transmission rate of the Omicron variant, the EFL will now review the circumstances surrounding the postponement. In addition, it will assist affected clubs throughout this challenging period to help them mitigate against the risk of infection amongst players and staff, while ensuring their obligations to the EFL regulations are maintained.

A rearranged date for the fixture will be confirmed in due course.

Rochdale AFC hopes to provide a further update on the New Year's Day fixture against Mansfield Town in the coming days.

Refunds on any tickets purchased for the game, as well as the postponed Boxing Day fixture at Carlisle United, will be available following confirmation of each rearranged date.

Those who purchased online should email once a new date has been confirmed.

Supporters who purchased in-house can visit the ticket office in person for their refund.
