Sunday’s A-League clash between Brisbane Roar and Perth Glory is off, with the fixture postponed as a result of the three-day lockdown imposed by the Western Australian and Queensland governments.

Perth and the Peel region entered a snap 72-hour lockdown from Friday midnight WST after a man contracted COVID-19 while staying at one of WA’s quarantine hotels – Mercure Perth.

A close contact the man stayed with after his hotel quarantine period ended also tested positive to COVID-19.

The lockdown is due to end at midnight WST on Monday.

The Roar-Glory encounter was to have been played at the Moreton Daily Stadium and details of the rescheduled match will be announced at a later date.

Meanwhile, Saturday night’s AFL clash between Fremantle and North Melbourne at Optus Stadium will go ahead but without crowds.
