The A-Leagues regrets to announce that our Round Five match scheduled against Melbourne City in the Liberty A-League has been postponed due to the positive COVID cases within the Melbourne City team.

The A-Leagues can confirm players from Melbourne City FC’s Liberty A-League Women’s football department have tested positive for COVID-19 and are currently in isolation and all report to be currently feeling well.

The case involves double-vaccinated individuals who tested positive via PCR tests on 29 & 30 December.
