Perth Glory handed friendly finish to A-League season

Perth Glory has been handed a friendly finish to the A-League season.

Perth Glory has been handed a friendly finish to the A-League season.

Perth Glory has been gifted a friendly finish to its 2014-15 A-League campaign.

The recently released schedule includes the Glory playing three of its final four games at nib Stadium, starting with its March 28 clash against the Western Sydney Wanderers.

After traveling to Hunter Stadium to tackle the Newcastle Jets on April 6, the Glory then finishes with consecutive home clashes, against Sydney FC (April 10) and Melbourne City (April 19).

The Glory will play three of the semi-finalists from last season in the opening six rounds, but need only travel for one of those games.

It will meet losing semi-finalist Central Coast Mariners at Central Coast Stadium in round five.

The Glory is host to champion Brisbane Roar in round two and runner-up Western Sydney in round six.

Perth does have to travel for its season opener though, all the way to Westpac Stadium, to play the Wellington Phoenix.

Of 14 home games, Perth will play two Friday games, eight Saturday games, three Sunday games and one Monday game, on January 5.

Perth Glory CEO, Jason Brewer said the club was extremely pleased with the fixtures.

“It’s certainly good to see so many of our home games being played on Saturday nights and at times that best suit our fans both young and old,” he said.

“We also work hard to ensure that we would not be playing our big summer games during the middle of the day in the West Australian heat. That was unacceptable last year for both our players and fans.

“I am truly excited by the draw and I’m sure our members and fans will be too. To play our first home game against reigning champions, Brisbane, with our many new signings making their home debuts, will really create an incredible and hopefully intimidating atmosphere.

“But to be honest the game I’m most looking forward to will be the Sunday night clash against Melbourne Victory over the Australia Day weekend, where our fans will get the chance to see Berisha in a Victory shirt, definite fireworks.

"We have some tough matches and travels this season, two games in Sydney over 5 days and the Christmas and New Year games in Melbourne, however we have good run-in to the end of the season, when I’m sure we will be competing for a finals position.”
