Western United has confirmed its final home fixtures for 2023, bringing in the Christmas period with two huge matches across both the Isuzu UTE A-League Men and the Liberty A-League Women.
It all kicks off with the mouth-watering Aloisi Derby with John Aloisi set to face off against his brother Ross as Western United plays host to Brisbane Roar.
The date of the fixture has been moved to Friday 15 December, with kick-off at 6pm AEDT at AAMI Park for the huge clash.
The Aloisi’s will become the first pair of brothers to coach against each other in an A-Leagues game, adding an extra layer of intrigue to an exciting Isuzu UTE A-League clash.
United has beaten Brisbane on five separate occasions but couldn’t get the better of the Queensland outfit last season, so John Aloisi will be eager to get one over his brother and pick up a big three points heading towards the new year.
Western United will then ring in the Christmas period exactly a week later when the Liberty A-League side takes on Perth Glory at City Vista Pavilion and Sports Field.
The match kicks off at 5pm on Friday 22 December and the Green and Black will be fired up to exact revenge on Perth for the defeat in Round 1.
Glory have given the Green and Black three difficult matches in the Liberty A-League and Mark Torcaso will be hoping his team can break a two-game losing streak against them to give the fans an early Christmas present.
Tickets for the men’s match against Brisbane will go on sale on Wednesday 6 December with an initial member pre-sale, following by a general public release.
Tickets for the women’s clash against Perth Glory will be on sale from next week for Green and Black fans to secure their pre-Christmas plans.
These two fixtures are the latest part of the journey on the road to Tarneit as the Regional Football Facility approaches its final stages of completion.
Work is continuing to get the venue ready with development on track to have home matches played in Tarneit in 2024.
