What’s ahead for Western United as Christmas approaches?


Western United has a packed schedule leading into Christmas. 

As summer approaches, now is the time to see the Green and Black play. 

Here are the two blockbuster home games before Christmas: 

Sydney FC (Round 8)

Where: GMHBA Stadium

When: Sunday, December 1

Kick-off: 4.00 pm

Perhaps United’s biggest test yet.

The reigning A-League champions will head to Geelong to face Mark Rudan’s side in a highly anticipated clash.

The Sky Blues sit second after winning four of their opening five fixtures.

And with attacking options such as Milos Ninkovic, Adam Le Fondre and Kosta Barabarouses, it’s easy to understand how they’ve done it.

Melbourne Victory (Round 9)

Where: GMHBA Stadium

When: Sunday, December 8

Kick-off: 4.00 pm

A rematch of the famous Round 4 fixture.

After trailing 2-0 after seven minutes, United came back to win 3-2 at Marvel Stadium.

The Green and Black are now set to welcome the Victory to Geelong.

Victory has had an inconsistent start to their season.

One win from its opening six games sees Marco Kurz’s side sit eighth.

Their attacking talent is undisputed however with the likes of Ola Toivonen, Andrew Nabbout and Robbie Kruse leading the line.

Two strong squads are set to make this game another thriller.

Central Coast Mariners (Round 7)

United will travel to New South Wales for the first time when it takes on the Mariners.

The Mariners have already sprung one surprise this season, beating Perth Glory away from home.

Mark Rudan has said that a change of scenery could be good for his side, after playing the last five games in Victoria.

Brisbane Roar (Round 10)

Following consecutive home games, the Green and Black will head north to face Robbie Fowler’s Brisbane Roar on a Friday night.

The Roar showed what they’re capable of last week, coming from 3-1 down to defeat ladder-leaders Melbourne City 4-3.

Western Sydney Wanderers (Round 11)

The stunning new Bankwest Stadium will be electric when Melbourne’s west meets Sydney’s version in the final clash before Christmas. 

It will be the second meeting between the two clubs this season after United defeated the Wanderers 2-1 in Round 5.
