Sydney FC have opted to move next month's A-League fixture from Brookvale Oval to Leichhardt Oval due to unacceptable playing conditions.
It is the second time in a week the northern beaches venue has lost a professional sporting contest, with an NRL trial switched to Cronulla.
The Sky Blues, whose home at Moore Park is undergoing a reconstruction, will instead host their round 22 match against Melbourne City at Leichhardt Oval.
"Obviously we are disappointed to have to move the game away from Brookvale," chief executive Danny Townsend said on Friday.
"But with only three weeks to go there is still work to do on the playing surface to bring it up to A-League standard."
Townsend left the door open for the club to play at Brookvale Oval next summer.
"We'd rather make a decision now to give our members and stakeholders enough notice of the change, and will continue to work with Brookvale Oval and the council to provide us with an option to host A-League football at Brookvale next season," he said.
The move also comes one day after NRL club St George Illawarra were forced to shift their trial to Wollongong due to similar issues at Jubilee Oval.
Perth coach Bobby Despotovski hit out at FFA officials over the state of the Jubilee Oval surface following their W-League grand final loss to Sydney FC.
The Dragons are continuing investigations into whether the surface will be fit to host their home-opener next month.
However the Sky Blues confirmed all of their Asian Champions League games will be played at the venue, beginning with their opener on March 6.
