Melbourne Victory FC has issued a statement following the Federal Government’s announcement that Australian citizens arriving home from overseas from midnight tonight, Sunday March 15, will be required to self-isolate for 14 days due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Melbourne Victory will return to Australia tomorrow following Sunday evening’s Round 23 Hyundai A-League fixture away to Wellington Phoenix.
The Club takes the health and safety of its players, staff and the broader community incredibly seriously, and will comply with the necessary protocols.
We will continue to work through this unprecedented situation with Football Federation Australia and the appropriate Government authorities.
The club will provide a further update as soon as possible.
