We can confirm that our A-League fixture against Newcastle Jets scheduled for this Saturday evening has been postponed due to Victoria’s seven-day lockdown.
In a statement released this afternoon, APL Commissioner Greg O’Rourke said:
Tomorrow night’s fixture between Western United FC and Melbourne Victory at AAMI Park will proceed as scheduled, without crowds, as per the government direction.
Saturday’s fixture between Melbourne City FC and the Newcastle Jets has been postponed and an announcement in regards to Monday’s match between Western United FC and Macarthur FC will be made in the next 48 hours.
We will continue to monitor the situation based on government and health advice in relation to other matches.
Whilst it is currently unclear on when the game will be played, we will provide an update as soon as we can.
Stay safe, City family.
