The Liberty A-League Women’s draw has dropped and we’ve got some cracking games in store as we start the defence of our Premiership crown.
As we build up to the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia, there’s more games than ever with Western United entering the competition this season.
And Sydney FC fans can look forward to a great mix of matches with four Doubleheaders at the stunning new Allianz Stadium plus a raft of games at community venues.
Head Coach Ante Juric is excited for the season that lies ahead of him and his team as they look to retain the Premiers Plate.
“We are excited with the draw coming out and we look forward to getting the season up and running. It is great to be playing in an expanded season for 2022/23 and to play at family friendly kick-off times this season will be nice for the fans,” Juric said.
Throughout the season, majority of the kick off times are family friendly Saturday afternoons, allowing fans to follow the team on a regular basis.
It’s the perfect draw to help Sydney FC showcase the skills of our brilliant women’s team and allow us to remain connected to the community game.
Juric is also excited to be playing a new team in Western United in the expanded draw.
“We play most clubs twice this year and that’s very exciting, and it’s fantastic to welcome Western United to the league.
“It’s a massive year for the sport with the Women’s World Cup in Australia next year and I hope the new expanded season will create great crowds and brilliant atmospheres.”
Sydney FC Women will open their season with a trip to Adelaide United on Sunday 20th November before a Grand Final re-match against Melbourne Victory in our first home game.
December kicks off with an explosive away Sydney Derby before two home matches at Allianz Stadium, in the shape of Doubleheader fixtures with Brisbane Roar and Western Sydney Wanderers. Both games will kick-off before Isuzu UTE A-League men’s matches.
In 2023, we return to Leichhardt Oval to face the newly formed Western United side and Perth Glory. It is then a DoubleHeader on Australia Day as they travel to AAMI Park to face Melbourne Victory before Steve Corica’s evening kick-off.
We will make history in February with a trip to play in New Zealand for the first time when we take on Wellington Phoenix after entertaining Melbourne City and travelling to Canberra earlier in the month.
In March and April, we will play three of the final four matches at home, two of which will be against Wellington Phoenix and Adelaide United at Netstrata Jubilee in Kogarah, returning to the scene of some famous Sky Blue results. Our girls will close the season with a Saturday afternoon clash at the new Allianz Stadium against Newcastle Jets, part of a double header once more.
With 10 home games all being played right here in Sydney, there is no better time to get on board and support our Liberty A-League Women’s side.
