AFC Champions League fixture change confirmed


Perth Glory can confirm that following discussions with Ulsan Hyundai FC, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), Football Federation Australia (FFA) and Professional Footballers Australia (PFA), the club’s upcoming AFC Champions League Group F game against Ulsan Hyundai FC has been rescheduled.

Instead of travelling to play away at Ulsan Hyundai FC on Wednesday 4 March 2020 as originally scheduled, Glory will now host the Korean side at Perth Rectangular Stadium on Wednesday 18 March 2020 (kick-off time TBC).

The return fixture will now take place at the Ulsan Munsu Football Stadium on Tuesday 7 April 2020 (kick-off time TBC).

Glory CEO Tony Pignata was quick to acknowledge the collaborative approach taken by the various stakeholders in rearranging the fixtures.

“The health and safety of our players, staff and supporters was always the club’s priority,” he said, “and this decision safeguards that, so we are pleased with the outcome.

“On behalf of the club, I would like to thank Ulsan Hyundai FC, the AFC, FFA and the PFA for their assistance in this matter and we look forward to welcoming Ulsan Hyundai FC to Perth next month.”
