The A-Leagues regrets to announce that an additional Liberty A-League match has been postponed due to positive COVID cases.
The scheduled match between the Western Sydney Wanderers and Canberra United due to be held today, 1 January 2022, has been postponed as a result of the positive COVID-19 cases within the Western Sydney Wanderers team.
The Western Sydney Wanderers women’s football department confirmed positive COVID-19 cases via either RAT or PCR testing on 31 December and 1 January. All players, coaches and staff with positive results are now in isolation and following the NSW Health directives.
The A-Leagues protocols continue to be effective for screening and subsequent PCR testing in detecting the virus and ensuring immediate isolation.
Our primary concern is for the health, wellbeing and safety of all players, staff and their families. All positive cases and those close to them are adhering to relevant state government health directives, in close consultation with the A-Leagues.
We will continue to work with the Western Sydney Wanderers and Canberra United on confirming a new schedule for the postponed match as soon as possible.
