In partnership with the NSW Government and Destination NSW (DNSW) the A-Leagues will play all 12 Isuzu UTE A-League Men and Liberty A-League Women matches in Sydney between Friday January 12 and Sunday January 14, 2024.
This makes us the first league to celebrate a full men’s and women’s round in a single city.
The ‘Unite Round’ is being introduced for this season (2023-24) and next season (2024-25).
This also means that, starting this season, the hosting rights for the Grand Final will revert to the traditional system, with the highest ranked Semi Final winner playing host.
During ‘Unite Round’, a range of double header matches will be hosted at Allianz Stadium, CommBank Stadium and Leichhardt Oval, and grassroots tournaments for junior boys and girls will take place at venues across Sydney. A live site at Moore Park will also feature a fan park and viewing party for the AFC Asian Cup match in Qatar between Australia and India’s men’s teams on Saturday 13 January at 10:30pm AEDT.
For the Isuzu UTE A-League Men, ‘Unite Round’ will be an additional round – making it a 27-game regular season and the existing Round 12 fixtures have been moved to new midweek dates. For the Liberty A-League Women, ‘Unite Round’ will use the existing Round 12 fixtures, keeping the season as a 22-game regular season.
Canberra United’s home match against Adelaide United will take centre place in the ‘Unite Round’ Schedule, with the match being played on Saturday 13 January at Leichhardt Oval.
With Canberra United maintaining home rights for the Liberty A-League Women ‘Unite Round’, all Canberra United Liberty A-League Women Members will be provided access to this game included in your Membership. Details will be provided on how to enter closer to the round, along with potential avenues to provide access to the fixture.
Tickets for A-Leagues ‘Unite Round’ will go on sale from Monday 6 November, with Club Members having access to discounted tickets.
This A-Leagues event is supported by the NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.
