Round 15 on Saturday 21st July will now be changed to Premier League Game Day and all Premier League matches will be played on Sunday July 22, at Melita Stadium. “It gives the chance for the Association to utilise the facilities of Melita Stadium so our flagship competition can display the Challenge Shield” , Mike Quarmby, CEO of GDSFA commented.
“Further to this, we are excited for the players who will experience a quality pitch and the feeling of professionalism. This concept, the first of its kind for our grassroots teams in quite a while, with other initiatives such as the Premier League preview and match reviews, should entice players to our League”, Quarmby said.
The games at Melita Stadium will be filmed. Kick off times are as follows:
12 noon: Rydalmere FC vs Sydney Dragon FC
2pm: Pendle Hill FC vs Granville Kewpie Ariana
4pm: Greystanes FC vs Holroyd Rangers
