The Rowdies’ match on Wednesday against El Paso Locomotive FC has been postponed until Oct. 12 “due to the anticipated impact of Hurricane Ian on the Tampa Bay area,” the team announced.

Tickets originally purchased for Sept. 28 will be recognized at the rescheduled game, which also starts at 7:30 p.m.

The National Hurricane Center placed Tampa Bay under a hurricane watch Monday. Hillsborough County issued an evacuation order for some residents — mandatory for Zone A, voluntary for Zone B — while Pinellas County is planning mandatory evacuations for Zones A, B and C.

Tampa Bay forced a draw against Birmingham Legion FC in their last match Saturday. After the postponement, its next game will take place Oct. 1 at Monterey Bay FC.
