With the 2019/20 Hyundai A-League fixture now released, we will visit 13 different venues throughout the season. Ahead of the new season, we look at some of the unique stadiums we are set to visit.
GMHBA Stadium, Geelong
In Round 3 we will make our first trip down the Princes Freeway to GMHBA Stadium, as we take on Western United FC for the first time.
The newly redeveloped stadium in Geelong holds a capacity of 36,000 people, and despite hosting Hyundai A-League games in the past, our Round 3 clash will be the first in the Club’s history at the venue.
It’s our inaugural clash against Western United, and a road trip that will be worth planning!
When: Round 3, Sunday 27 October 2019, kick-off 6:00pm (AEDT).
Dolphin Stadium, Redcliffe
We will travel to Queensland’s capital to take on Brisbane Roar on two occasions this season, with the first of those coming in Round 6 at Dolphin Stadium.
The boutique stadium holds 10,000 people, creating a unique atmosphere.
It might be the first time we take on Brisbane at Dolphin Stadium in the Hyundai A-League, but it won’t be the first time the two teams have met at the venue, with City prevailing 1-0 in the 2018 FFA Cup Round of 32.
When: Round 6, Sunday 17 November 2019, kick-off 4:00pm (AEDT).
Bankwest Stadium, Parramatta NSW
A five-day turnaround between Rounds 6 and 7, sees us visit Bankwest Stadium to take on the Western Sydney Wanderers under Friday night lights.
Our Round 7 clash will be our first at the new 30,000-seat stadium in Western Sydney. Based in Parramatta, New South Wales, the Wanderers new home base opened in April 2019.
When: Round 7, Friday 22 November 2019, kick-off 7:30pm (AEDT).
Eden Park, Auckland
In Round 19, we fly across the Tasman Sea to take on Wellington Phoenix at one of New Zealand’s most iconic venues, Eden Park.
Located in central Auckland, with a capacity of 50,000, Eden Park is New Zealand’s largest sports stadium.
It’s a historic sporting venue, and a venue that the boys will be looking to secure three points on.
When: Round 19, Saturday 15 February 2020, kick-off 5:15pm (AEDT)
Mars Stadium, Ballarat
Our second trip away to Western United FC, sees us travel to Mars Stadium in the Ballarat Showground in Wendouree.
Redeveloped in 2016, the oval shaped stadium plays host to a number of events, with a capacity of 11,000.
When: Round 27, Friday 10 April 2020, kick-off 7:30pm (AEDT).
