The A-League is the next sporting season on the Covid-19 chopping block.
It was announced today, the A-League will play games of football behind closed doors. James Johnson, the FFA Chief Executive Officer faced the media earlier today, outlining the A-League will continue to host games without a crowd present. Johnson proclaimed the FFA will distribute ‘strict guidelines’ to ensure the interests of the community are adhered to.
The matches involving Melbourne Victory and the Wellington Pheonix in rounds 24 and 25 will not proceed, they will be re-scheduled and the Wellington Phoenix will play the remainder of their matches in Australia.
A compressed season means six rounds will be completed in three to four weeks, with all matches being played without crowds.
