Wanderers fixtures for season 2017/18 released

The NRMA Insurance Western Sydney Wanderers’ Hyundai A-League fixtures for season 2017/18 have been released.

The Wanderers are set to open their season with a double dose of action at Spotless Stadium with a clash against Perth Glory in a Sunday 6:00pm clash at Spotless Stadium.
 
Round 2 will repeat the home ground action when the Wanderers host Central Coast Mariners on Saturday 14 October.
 
The first Sydney Derby of the season will be an away game for the Red & Black at Allianz Stadium in Round 3, which will start a run of four away fixtures before a return to Spotless Stadium for Round 7 against Wellington Phoenix.

The Wanderers will only host one Sydney Derby this season on December 9 at ANZ Stadium where a new Hyundai A-League crowd record is hoped to be set.
 
The Christmas period will see the start of the Summer of Football with the Wanderers travelling to Newcastle to play against the Jets before the club’s New Years’ Day tradition continues as the Red & Black welcome Melbourne City to ANZ Stadium.
 
That match marks the beginning of a feast of football for Members and fans alike, which includes four games in 12 days to close out the Summer of Football period.


 
The Wanderers take on fierce rivals Melbourne Victory at home only once this season on 19 January in what’s set to be the club’s first Friday night blockbuster at ANZ Stadium.
 
The Wanderers will play at home against Newcastle Jets, Wellington Phoenix and Perth Glory in Rounds 20, 22 and 23 respectively; fixtures which bookend Round 21’s Sydney Derby XVIII on Sunday 25 February. 

The Wanderers face a tough finish to the season with back-to-back away clashes with both Melbourne sides in Round 24 and Round 25, before closing out the regular season against Adelaide United on 15 April at ANZ Stadium.
