Following today’s fixture announcement from Australian Professional Leagues (APL), Melbourne City FC can confirm its A-League schedule through until mid-May.
The big news to come out of the announcement is our home Derby will be played on Saturday 17 April at AAMI Park, with kick-off set for 7.10pm.
City will kick off April with an ‘away’ fixture to Western United at AAMI Park on the 1st in what will be the first Thursday night match of the A-League season.
We will then face a quick turnaround to be in action the following Monday away to Wellington at WIN Stadium.
Patrick Kisnorbo’s men will then play their third match in ten days, away once again – this time for a Grand Final re-match against Sydney FC on Saturday 10 April.
Following our home Derby, we will be away to Macarthur for the first time at Campelltown Stadium on Saturday 24 April.
Our jam-packed April schedule will wrap up on the following Thursday night at AAMI Park when we take on Newcastle.
We then have four games locked in for May, first away to Perth before ending our season with three consecutive home matches against Brisbane, Adelaide and finally, Wellington.
