A-Leagues Postpone Perth Glory Men’s matches for balance of December 2021 due to COVID case

Round 5 fixture Brisbane Roar v Perth Glory & Round 6 fixture Adelaide United v Perth Glory postponed until early 2022

The A-Leagues can confirm that a player from Perth Glory FC’s men’s football department has tested positive for COVID-19 whilst in Queensland and is currently isolating in line with QLD Health directions. The case involves a double-vaccinated person who tested positive to a regular rapid antigen test and PCR test on 15 December.

No other members of the club’s playing, coaching, medical and operational staff have presented symptoms, but have all undergone PCR testing and are isolating as per the Health directive.

As a result the scheduled Round 5 fixture Brisbane Roar v Perth Glory and the scheduled Round 6 fixture Adelaide United v Perth Glory have been postponed until early 2022. 

The Liberty A-League match between Brisbane Roar and Melbourne Victory will go ahead as planned on Saturday 18 December. 

All A-Leagues players and coaching staff undergo daily screening processes including daily rapid antigen tests 

The team had its previous test Saturday 11 December and all received negative results.

The A-Leagues is working closely with the relevant health authorities, the PFA and Perth Glory to work through the impact of these challenges on the players and staff involved and their families especially at this time of the year.
