Melbourne Victory will play all seven A-League Women home games in 2021/22 as AAMI Park double-headers after the fixture was released in full on Monday.
For the first time in Club history, both the men’s and women’s teams will play every home game at AAMI Park.
Victory’s opening four A-League Women home matches were confirmed in September, with a season opener against Adelaide United on December 5 and Melbourne Derby on Boxing Day.
And it was confirmed on Monday that every Victory home game will be played at AAMI Park as a double-header.
Home in the New Year
With three of Victory’s first four games at AAMI Park, another follows against Brisbane Roar on January 2.
That will be part of a double-header, with the Isuzu UTE A-League team also facing the Roar to begin 2022.
Victory takes on Brisbane at Moreton Daily Stadium on December 18 before the return clash in Melbourne. Victory beat Roar in last season’s Semi Final before going on to win the Championship.
Grand Final rematch on Australia Day
After the meeting with Brisbane, Victory embarks on a three-game road trip, facing the Newcastle Jets, Western Sydney Wanderers and Canberra United away from home.
But the defending champions return to AAMI Park on Australia Day for a Grand Final rematch with Sydney FC.
Kyra Cooney-Cross’ last-minute extra-time winner saw Victory past Sydney in the Grand Final and the teams meet again on January 26, 2022.
Home flurry to finish regular season
Victory will meet the Wellington Phoenix for the first time in the A-League Women on February 6 and has a trip to Adelaide 20 days later, but finishes the campaign with three home games in four.
Jeff Hopkins’ side hosts the Wanderers on February 12 and Perth Glory a week later, before completing the regular season against Canberra on March 4.
