Fixture List review

If you’re like me and have been excited by the release of the A League and W League fixture lists, then you will have been browsing through them to see which games you’ll be able to make and which ones clash with something else in your diary. I’m Sydney based, so all Sydney teams, Mariners, and even Newcastle and the Phoenix at a push are all accessible on any given day to go and see live top-flight football.

I’ve actually meshed the two lists together to make it easier for myself, have a look :

This is a snapshot of what was available on the A League and W League websites as of 8th December, and will change – my shabby Excel skills may have undone this process too, so please don’t take this as the real fixture list. This is for my own use, so don’t come after me, but I’d love to be able to look this up on an official website somewhere so I can plan my football viewing! It did throw up an interesting question about Round 11 in the W League :

I’ve assumed that the Jets are playing on the Thursday and City on Sunday that week, but it would be good to confirm. I feel like I’m treading on Andrew Howe’s toes here.

So, we have 10 double headers during the season, starting on the opening afternoon on 27th December at Bankwest Stadium, even though it’s two different teams the Wanderers men and women are facing. The last one is on 20th March when Sydney FC entertain Melbourne Victory men’s and women’s at Kogarah for the biggest of Big Blues.

Wellington Phoenix v Sydney FC is going to be a cracker at WIN stadium early in the season, we’ll claim that one as a derby.

That’s all for now. If I’ve made any glaring errors, let me know. I’d hate to turn up at Doplhin stadium when the game’s at Cromer Park.
