We are just weeks away from the start of the 2019/2020 A-League season and the equal most successful team in A-League history – the Melbourne Victory – are again expected to challenge for the premiership.
For the first time in six years Kevin Muscat won’t be managing the team after quitting the club earlier in the year. Leading the Victory into battle will be former Adelaide boss Marco Kurz.
The Victory will get their campaign underway on Saturday October 12th in a huge local derby with arch-rivals Melbourne City FC. The game is set for 7:30pm on October 12th at Marvel Stadium and you could be sitting in the best seats in the house – in the Medallion Club.
