Fixture update: Roar Women v Glory rescheduled

Football Federation Australia (FFA) today announced the decision reschedule Brisbane Roar's Westfield W-League Round 12 fixture against Perth Glory at Dorrien Gardens.

The fixture, which was originally scheduled to be played on Saturday, 15 February, will now take place the following day, Sunday, 16 February. Kick-off 2:30pm QLD time.

This decision was made due to the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament Tokyo 2020 Asian Qualifiers Final Round - Group B fixture between Australia and China PR which has been rescheduled to be played on Thursday 13 February (kick-off 7:30pm (AEDT)).

FFA Head of Leagues, Greg O’Rourke, said that player welfare was the key priority when making these fixture changes.

“With ten (10) of the Westfield Matildas involved in these two fixtures (Melbourne City FC v Melbourne Victory & Perth Glory v Brisbane Roar FC), we had to amend the schedule to ensure that the players had an appropriate amount of recovery time between their international match on Thursday (13 February) and their Westfield W-League match,” said O’Rourke.

“Since Westfield W-League 2020 Finals Series positions are on the line, we believed that moving these matches to Sunday (16 February) would allow these players to be at their best when they play such important fixtures.

“I would like to thank Fox Sports, the clubs and other stakeholders for accommodating these changes at short notice due to these unique set of circumstances,” concluded O’Rourke.
