Glory set to play four games in Tasmania

Perth Glory can confirm that the club will play three ISUZU UTE A-League games and one Liberty A-League game in Tasmania later this month.

The four matches, two of which will be played as part of an ISUZU UTE A-League and Liberty A-League double-header, will take place on Sunday 20 February, Wednesday 23 February and Sunday 27 February at UTAS Stadium in Launceston, with opponents and kick-off times to be confirmed shortly.

Tasmanian Premier Peter Gutwein is delighted to be welcoming Glory to the State.

“These four matches present a fantastic opportunity for fans around Tasmania to show up and enjoy top flight football.” he said.

“Our Government is committed to delivering more elite sporting content for Tasmanians to enjoy – and importantly, provide pathways for local sports men, women and children.

“We look forward to working closely with Perth Glory and hope to see even more A-League content returning to Tasmania in the future.”

Glory CEO Tony Pignata, meanwhile, was quick to praise the Tasmanian State Government for being so proactive in enabling the fixtures to take place.

“We’re very excited to be bringing both our ISUZU UTE A-League and Liberty A-League teams to Tasmania for what promises to be a superb week of football,” he said.

“On behalf of the club, I would like to thank the Tasmanian State Government for their outstanding level of support and for being so welcoming.

“We know there is a passionate local football community in Tasmania and we are really looking forward to engaging with them during our time in the State.”

Glory will return to WA to complete a series of home ISUZU UTE A-League games in early March.
