A-Leagues fixture updates due to extreme heat forecast in Melbourne and Adelaide: Details

The Australian Professional Leagues (APL) has confirmed changes to four fixtures across the Isuzu UTE A-League and Liberty A-League this weekend.

Due to extreme heat forecast for Adelaide and Melbourne, and in line with provisions of the APL Heat Policy, fixtures have been updated involving the Original Rivalry, as well as Melbourne City, Wellington Phoenix and Newcastle Jets.

Instead of an Adelaide United-Melbourne Victory Pride Celebration double-header at Coopers Stadium on Saturday, the Liberty A-League showdown has been moved to Sunday at the same venue while the Isuzu UTE A-League clash is still scheduled for Saturday but has seen the kick-off time moved back.
