Football Federation Australia (FFA) has confirmed the presentation of the Hyundai A-League 2012/13 season Premiers Plate will be made at the winning club-s home venue.
Heading into the final round of the regular season this weekend, two clubs - the Western Sydney Wanderers (54 points) and the Central Coast Mariners (51 points) - remain in the hunt for 1st place and the Premiers Plate.
Head of the Hyundai A-League Damien de Bohun said the decision was taken to allow as many home fans as possible to share the moment of triumph.
“Winning silverware is a proud moment for any football club and we think it-s right that the fans are part of the occasion as much as the winning players and coaches,” de Bohun said.
“We have discussed the matter with all clubs involved and have made arrangements to present the Premiers Plate at home venues.”
The decision means the Western Sydney Wanderers, if they were to finish in top spot, would receive the Premiers Plate in Week Two of the Hyundai A-League Finals Series (12 or 14 April in Sydney).
If the Central Coast Mariners were to finish first, the club would receive the Premiers Plate this Saturday night at Bluetongue Stadium following the match against Melbourne Heart.
