A-League 2020: Schedule, fixture, season postponed, start of season pushed back

THE start of the A-League and W-League seasons have been delayed to reduce the risk of a COVID-19 outbreak.

Both seasons had been due to kick off on Sunday at Bankwest Stadium with a double-header – Western Sydney Wanderers against newcomers Macarthur FC (A-League), and Wanderers against Sydney FC (W-League).

But with modified COVID-19 restrictions in place in Sydney over the Christmas period, the decision has been made – in consultation with the NSW Government – to move back the Bankwest Stadium double-header to next Wednesday.

The A-League season will now kick off on Monday at Geelong’s GMHBA Stadium, where Western United will host Adelaide United.

The women’s season will start on Tuesday when Brisbane Roar host Melbourne City in a W-League/A-League double-header at Dolphin Stadium.
