Football Federation Australia has officially released the fixtures for the upcoming 2018/19 Foxtel Y-League season.
Once again, the Foxtel Y-League will see ten clubs divided into two conferences; Conference A (Adelaide United, Brisbane Roar FC, Melbourne City FC, Melbourne Victory and Perth Glory) and Conference B (Central Coast Mariners, Canberra United, Newcastle Jets, Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers FC). Within each conference, the teams will play each other twice over 10 rounds (4 home / 4 away – 8 matches and 2 byes per team).
The Foxtel National Y-League 2018/19 Season will commence on the weekend of 10/11 November 2018, with the top team from each conference to meet in the Foxtel Y-League 2019 Grand Final on the weekend of the 2/3 February 2019.
Our Young Roar open their campaign away to Perth Glory at Dorrien Gardens on Saturday, 10 November (12:30pm KO)
We will play four home matches throughout the season with all four to be played at the Logan Football Complex - the club's new City of Logan home.
The Roar's first home clash will take place on Saturday, 17 November against Melbourne City (3pm KO) followed by home fixtures in Round 3 against Adelaide United (Sunday, 25 November, 3pm KO), Round 5 against Perth Glory (Saturday, 8 December, 10:30am KO) and Round 7 against Melbourne Victory (Sunday, 23 December, 10:30am KO).
FFA’s Head of Leagues, Greg O’Rourke, believes that the Foxtel Y-League plays an important role in the Australian Football ecosystem.
“Having a strong Foxtel Y-League helps complement the football development of Australia’s best youth footballers who also play in their respective local National Premier Leagues competitions during the winter months,” O’Rourke said.
“This competition not only allows the best youth footballers to test themselves against their age-group peers from around the country, it also allows them to learn from, and play with, Hyundai A-League players who are either returning from injury or who need match minutes.
“The Foxtel Y-League is the perfect stepping stone for our most talented players who aspire to play in the Hyundai A-League and become heroes in their own right,” concluded O’Rourke.
