In consultation with the NSW government, a decision has been made to move the A-League and Westfield W-League games scheduled for Sunday 27 December back by three days whilst the modified COVID-19 restrictions are in place in Sydney over the Christmas period.
The A-League 2020/21 season will now open on Monday 28th December between Western United FC and Adelaide United at GMBHA Stadium and the Westfield W-League 2020/21 season on Tuesday 29 December between Brisbane Roar FC and Melbourne City FC at Dolphin Stadium (a double-header with the men’s team).
The Westfield W-League/A-League double-header between Western Sydney FC & Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers FC & Macarthur FC will be moved to Wednesday 30 December at Bankwest Stadium.
Capacity levels will be reduced to 50% for all games in NSW until the end of December, including Central Coast Mariners v Newcastle Jets, in line with the guidance for New Year’s Eve celebrations state-wide.
Head of Leagues, Greg O’Rouke said:
“We have worked closely with the NSW government to ensure that the A-League and Westfield W-League seasons will go ahead as planned with the best possible experience for fans and players within the current restrictions. Moving the game back three days with a reduced capacity supports the government’s risk mitigation plan in relation to crowds and to mobility around the city during this Christmas period and New Year’s Eve.
