Scheduling Shenanigans

Melbourne’s Asian Champions League commitments have forced the FFA to make an early decision on the first leg of the Major Semi Final (Teams finishing 1st and 2nd in the league). With the Victory due in Beijing on February 21st for their match on the 23rd -ACL rules require the visiting team to be in town two days prior to a match – the ruling body have set down the game for Melbourne’s Docklands Stadium on Thursday, February 18th. The match will also feature either Sydney or Gold Coast, depending on results from the final round of the league season.

Due to the Australian National Team’s Asian Cup Qualifier against Indonesia in Brisbane on March 3rd, the second week of Finals matches (including the second leg of the Major Semi) will be held the weekend of March 6/7 – Unfortunately, this means there will be a huge 16 or 17 day gap between the two legs.

  1. Aw, this was a really quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.
