The Macarthur Football Association (MFA) is pleased to advise that it has released the full season draws of all the M-League competitions for season 2020.
The M-League will kick-off on Saturday, 21 March with Reserve Grade commencing at 5pm, followed by First Grade at 7pm. The Women’s M-League and Colts commence their respective seasons on Sunday, 22 March from 11am.
There will be three (3) scheduled rounds prior to the Easter break.
The MFA has scheduled Men’s M-League matches on ANZAC Day (Saturday, 25 April 2020) as it is not a public holiday long weekend.
Mid-week matches are scheduled from 12 - 13 May 2020 (ML1 & ML2) and 19 – 21 May 2020 (WML & CML).
There will be no M-League matches played during the Queen’s Birthday long weekend (6 & 7 June 2020), with the MFA to host the annual City v Country Charity Series at this time. City v Country has been extended to include U18 Girls and U21 Boys in 2020.
Once again, the MFA has scheduled matches at Lynwood Park throughout the season. These matches include:
ML1 & ML2:
09/05/2020: MTA vs ESC
30/05/2020: OPR vs GSC
13/06/2020: NAR vs HAR
18/07/2020: TIG vs ING
20/05/2020: NAR vs STM
12/07/2020: TIG vs OPR
09/08/2020: HAR vs ING
Note: the ESC vs TAH WML match that was to have been played at Lynwood Stadium on the weekend of 28 June 2020 will now be played at ESC due to their annual Pink and Blue Ribbon Fundraising weekend. We will endeavour to schedule a match at Lynwood Stadium for these two teams during the season where possible (this will largely depend upon receipt of the final representative draws and what dates and times will be available to host other matches).
19/05/2020: CAM vs TIG
Please note All ML1 & ML2 plus WML teams will have least one match on the synthetic pitch (across the season where time slots allow). Unfortunately, due to the limited available “free times” on Lynwood Stadium, we are unable to host the CML teams at the venue (with the exception of one mid-week match (as CAM do not have sufficient lighting to host a night match).
Oher key fixtures include:
Men’s First Grade Grand Final rematch: Round 5, Gunners SC vs Camden Tigers, Sunday 26 April 2020 from 3pm, BEN1;
Women’s Grand Final Rematch: Round 3, Ingleburn Eagles v Camden Tigers, 5 April 2020, 11am, Macquarie Fields Park;

The 21-Round Season concludes over the weekend of 15 & 16 August 2020, with the M-League Finals Series running from 22 August – 30 August 2020.
The M-League Grand Final Day will take place at Lynwood Park on Sunday, 6 September 2020.
Best of luck to all teams participating in these competitions in 2020.
