Hyundai A-League 2019/20 Season Draw - Fixture Updates

Football Federation Australia today announced that following the latest Government advice re: mass gatherings that the next series of five matches will be played however with a closed stadiums policy and only with essential match day personnel involved.

FFA Head of Leagues, Greg O’Rourke, has been working with his team and all stakeholders to reschedule the remainder of the Hyundai A-League 2019/20 Season in a condensed period.

“As we mentioned on Monday, we have made the decision to continue playing the Hyundai A-League 2019/20 Season, behind closed doors, whilst closely monitoring and adhering to the current Government directives and expert advice available to us at this time,” said O’Rourke

“Due to the recent decision by the Federal Government that all travellers to Australia arriving from Monday 16 March will have to self-isolate for a period of 14 days, Wellington Phoenix’s rescheduled Round 21 match against Sydney FC and their Round 24 fixture against the Newcastle Jets have been postponed.

“Likewise, Melbourne Victory’s Round 24 fixture against Brisbane Roar FC and their Round 25 match against Perth Glory have also been postponed. These postponements are due to both Wellington Phoenix and Melbourne Victory self-isolating after arriving in Australia having been in NZ for their last match.

“Working in collaboration with our clubs, FOX SPORTS and ABC TV, PFA, venues and other stakeholders, we are looking to play the remaining 31 matches of the regular season in a condensed period by bringing forward matches from later rounds.

“We will continue to release the remaining fixtures on a rolling basis as we acknowledge the evolving COVID-19 protocols.

“We understand that these are difficult times for everyone and we will always put the health, welfare and safety of our players, coaches, match officials, volunteers, administrators and fans at the centre of our decision making process.

“Whilst fans will not be able to attend in person we urge you to continue to support your club and the Hyundai A-League by watching the matches on FOX SPORTS, ABC TV, Kayo or the My Football Live App and to get involved on social media channels” concluded O’Rourke.
