Soccer-Perth Glory fixtures postponed after positive COVID-19 test – National Post

A-League side Perth Glory’s remaining fixtures for 2021 were postponed until early 2022 after a player tested positive for COVID-19.
The entire squad returned negative tests on Dec. 11, with the unnamed player testing positive shortly after the team’s arrival in Brisbane on Wednesday ahead of their league fixture against Brisbane Roar.
“The scheduled Round 5 fixture between Brisbane Roar and Perth Glory and the scheduled Round 6 fixture between Adelaide United and Perth Glory have been postponed until early 2022,” the club said in a statement on their website.
Glory owner Tony Sage said that the club is investigating how the player picked up the virus.
“We were in Adelaide for a period of time,” Sage told Perth radio station 6PR “The players were kept segregated in the hotel, we were able to train. It’s very difficult to find.
“Unless it came from one of the employees at the hotel or someone who ate at the hotel.”
There have been multiple instances of A-League players testing positive for COVID-19 in recent weeks, with Sydney FC, Western United and Newcastle Jets reporting cases in December.
