A-League chiefs spent Tuesday scrambling to arrange accommodation, match venues and training grounds in Queensland should they need to exit NSW due to a spike of coronavirus cases in Sydney.

Greg O’Rourke, the FFA’s head of leagues, confirmed that the organisation was organising a back-up plan should COVID-19 force the league to abandon the Sydney hub in which they had hoped to complete their remaining fixtures.

If the situation in Sydney deteriorates more rapidly than anticipated, the league could make a call to shift as soon as Saturday, O’Rourke says.

His preferred option is still to remain in Sydney, where the four NSW teams, Wellington Phoenix, who relocated some time ago, and the three Victorian clubs, who arrived on Saturday, are due to be joined by Perth Glory later this week.
