After a lengthy process consistently delayed by broadcast rights negotiations with the ABC and then the late-start of the 2019 National Women's Soccer League season, the W-League draw is finally here.


The 5 W-League matches we're most excited for

With the release of the W-League draw not a second too early, here's our top five picks for the matches that'll keep you on the edge of your seat this season.

Key Dates

The season kicks off with a new-look Western Sydney Wanderers against Adelaide United at Marconi Stadium on Thursday November 14 at 7:30 PM.

But the pick of Round 1 action is the Big Blue on November 17, with Melbourne Victory set to face Sydney at Jubilee Stadium.

In the first Grand Final rematch, Perth Glory set to face Sydney on December 8 at Dorrien Gardens.

We don't see any derbies until December, when Victory face Melbourne City on December 12, before what promises to be an epic Sydney derby on December 20 at the Wanderer's new home ground, Bankwest Stadium.

The biggest match of the year could prove to be the second Melbourne Derby however, a massive clash on February 29 booked for Marvel Stadium.
