A-League Men

After having an extra week to continue building momentum following a win at home in Round 21, Victory’s Men return to action as part of an A-Leagues Double Header alongside the Club’s Women – with both sides set to take on the Phoenix in New Zealand on Saturday.

Saturday’s clash will kickstart a run of three game in seven days, welcoming the competition back with a bang.

A-League Women

In what will go down as one of the most entertaining, chaotic and gripping finishes to an A-League Women’s season ever, the Club’s Women join the Men for a trip to Wellington.

Victory are back into the top four heading into the final round after claiming a point in Sunday’s draw with Brisbane, and hold onto a Finals position by the skin of their teeth – level with Canberra United on 28 points, but ahead on goal difference.

It’s an early kick off for the team, 12:15pm local, 10:15 AEDT.


Victory’s NPL side recorded a 2-0 win away from home to Doveton SC in Round 2, continuing a perfect start to the 2023 campaign.
