A-League and W-League matches will go ahead without restrictions
The Football Federation of Australia has confirmed that A-League and W-League matches will go ahead as normal this weekend, bucking the trend for other sporting events, like the Australia v New Zealand ODI, which is playing to an empty stadium tonight.
In relation to the leagues, FFA can advise that this weekend’s round 23 matches for the A-League and the semi-finals of the W-League will all proceed as scheduled. However, in consultation with clubs, we will have agreed mitigation protocols to be in place for all matches.
At this stage there remains no restrictions around football events, however we are conscious to ensure a safe working environment for our players, match officials, staff and volunteers. Additionally, we are also working with stadia to optimise sanitation protocols for fans to ensure their safety.
