Melbourne United may move home games to regional Vic
Melbourne United look set to relocate its home games to regional Victoria if the club can't use John Cain Arena due to a clash with the Australian Open tennis.
Less than a month out from the start of the NBL season, United still doesn't have a venue for early home games.
Melbourne remains hopeful of using John Cain Arena, formerly known as Melbourne Arena, for the first five rounds of the season from January 10 but are awaiting official confirmation around scheduling with the Australian Open tennis.
The world’s first tennis major starts on February 8, but the tournament could require early access to venues like John Cain Arena to fulfil quarantine obligations.
This would prompt United to take its home games to a basketball heartland like regional Victoria.
