Two more Victorian A-League games rescheduled


Two more A-League games involving Melbourne teams have been rescheduled because of Victoria's coronavirus lockdown.

The state went into a five-day lockdown at 11.59pm AEDT on Friday, forcing the league into a fixture reshuffle.

Melbourne City's clash with Sydney FC - scheduled for Tuesday 16 February at AAMI Park - has been moved, along with Melbourne Victory's game against Wellington originally slated for the same venue the following day.

Both changes were expected as the Victorian lockdown - which imposed stage-four restrictions across the state - is scheduled to end at 11.59pm on Wednesday.

The two games have been pushed back a week, with City now due to face the Sky Blues on February 23 and Victory to host Wellington 24 hours later.

Victory confirmed on their website tickets for the original Wellington clash would remain valid for the rescheduled date, with the match remaining at AAMI Park.

Saturday's two scheduled A-League games had already been postponed following Friday's lockdown announcement.

Western United's game against Sydney FC at AAMI Park was called off, as was City's planned clash with Western Sydney at Bankwest Stadium.

No new dates have yet been announced those fixtures.

Melbourne City's W-League game against Newcastle on Saturday was also postponed - with the Jets flying to Melbourne on Friday before almost immediately returning to NSW following the introduction of new border restrictions.
