A-Leagues have today announced a number of fixture changes in consideration of the Club’s AFC Champions League schedule.
Four fixtures – including one home match – have changed to allow the team more recovery time as it looks to continue its strong ACL start while also juggling the early rounds of the A-League Men’s season.
The Round 2 away fixture against Adelaide and Round 6 away match against Newcastle have both been moved back a day to allow the team an extra day to prepare after returning from Thailand and Japan respectively.
City’s third home match of the season, originally scheduled for Saturday 11 November against Macarthur FC, has also been moved to the following day and will kick off at 3:00pm.
It will remain a doubleheader, although the A-League Women’s clash against Western Sydney will now be the second match of the day and get underway at 5:45pm.
The final fixture change sees the Round 7 away clash against Perth Glory brought forward 24 hours, which will allow City an extra day to prepare for its final ACL Group Stage fixture against Zheijang.
See below the full list of fixture changes.
