The Philadelphia Fury’s first home game at Franklin Field in the new National Independent Soccer Association has been postponed.

It was to be Saturday against Stumptown Athletic of Charlotte, N.C. A statement on the NISA’s website said the postponement was made because of “complications due to [Hurricane] Dorian impacting logistics for some game staff.” The hurricane hit North Carolina’s eastern coast on Thursday, and continued to pound the state Friday morning.

Charlotte is west of the storm’s impact and projected path, but the effects on air travel and roads have been widespread.

The game will be rescheduled for Monday, Nov. 11. Tickets for the original date will be honored. The Fury’s first home contest is now Sept. 21 against Atlanta SC.

As of when this story was published, the Fury had not issued any statement on its website or social media feeds about the postponement. Their only acknowledgement was in the posted schedule, which has the Stumptown game moved to Nov. 11.

In the Fury’s first game, they lost an exhibition contest at Detroit City FC, 1-0, on Aug. 31.

The Fury moved up to the NISA this year after a few seasons as a semipro team based in South Jersey. Team CEO Matt Driver holds the rights to the name of the old NASL team, as well as the name of the NASL-era Atoms.
