Cyclone Marcia has forced Football Federation Australia to postpone Brisbane Roar's hosting of Melbourne Victory on Friday.

Friday's A-League fixture between Brisbane Roar and Melbourne Victory has been postponed due to dangerous weather conditions caused by Cyclone Marcia.

The Roar released a statement on Friday that Football Federation Australia (FFA) had decided to postpone the match, "after advice from the State Government, emergency authorities including Queensland Police and the Bureau of Meteorology".

A new date for the match, which will be held at Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium, is yet to be announced.

Cyclone Marcia  - a category five storm - made landfall on Friday on the central Queensland coast and is expected to remain at, at least, a category three level until Friday evening local time (mid-morning GMT) and potentially into Saturday.

It is expected that up to 300 millimetres of rain could fall in Brisbane on Friday.
