The Western Sydney Wanderers will play 13 home games at CommBank Stadium this season after the Australian Professional Leagues (APL) confirmed the full list of fixtures for the 2021/22 Isuzu UTE A-League Men’s season.
Headlining the fixtures is an unmissable opening round Sydney Derby on Saturday 20 November between the Wanderers and Sydney FC.
The Wanderers will play their traditional New Year’s Day fixture against Western United, setting up a run of fixtures during January as part of a summer of football.
“This season is a landmark moment for football in Australia,” said A-Leagues Commissioner Greg O’Rourke.
“We are proud to be able to deliver another full and action packed season for fans to access in more ways than ever before.
“Last season we saw the emergence of some incredible talent, and those football stories will once again be on display in stadiums this season.
“We have a new and exciting broadcast partnership with 10 ViacomCBS for our broadcast on free-to-air television as well as Paramount+ and our clubs are eager to start playing games.”
This year, the Isuzu UTE A-League men’s season will end with four weeks of finals, with semi finals to be fought on a home and away basis adding another level of excitement for fans.
Under the new format, the team finishing third on the ladder will host the side that comes sixth, while fourth will play fifth, both ties played as single finals.
The sides that finished first and second on the ladder will play the two qualifiers in home-and-away semifinals over two weekends, before the Grand Final follows on the fourth weekend of the finals.
Further information regarding stadium capacity and ticketing details will be released in the coming weeks.
