Hyundai A-League 2019/20 Season Draw: Fixture Update - Sydney Derby rescheduled

Following last weekend’s postponement of the Sydney Derby due to torrential rain, Football Federation Australia (FFA) has announced that the match will now be played on Friday 28 February 2020 at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium (kick-off 8:00pm (AEDT)).

To accommodate this fixture change, Sydney FC’s Round 21 match against the Wellington Phoenix will now be played on Wednesday 18 March (kick-off 7:45pm (AEDT)).

FFA Head of Leagues, Greg O’Rourke, believes that these changes were the best solution considering all the factors.

“The solution that we have landed on has allowed us to reschedule the Sydney Derby with minimum impact to other clubs and also after taking into account venue availability, AFC Champions League commitments and travel logistics for all stakeholders,” said O’Rourke.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Wellington Phoenix, as well as Fox Sports for their assistance in the rescheduling of the Sydney Derby,” concluded O’Rourke.
