NBL release Perth Wildcats schedule for home games after WA border opens

Perth Wildcats have been handed the opportunity to re-launch sport in WA after the border opens, with the NBL scheduling a clash against New Zealand at RAC Arena on February 6.

With the WA border set to open on February 5, the Wildcats would fly home from Tasmania that day for home matches on February 6 and 10. The second game is against Cairns.

The team departed WA on December 27 and has experienced multiple COVID-19 match cancellations, including last week due to 13 Wildcats testing positive to the virus. They will resume against Adelaide on Tuesday and then finish their time interstate under a revised fixture with matches against Illawarra on January 22 and 27, and a clash with Sydney on January 30.

Vice-captain Mitch Norton said the Wildcats had refused to focus on negatives.

“When you’re away from home, you’d like to be playing games. We haven’t been able to do that and we haven’t really been able to train,” he said.
