Glory's ACL fixture with Ulsan postponed

Perth Glory's only ACL match played this campaign ended in a 1-0 loss to FC Tokyo

Perth Glory's Asian Champions League match against Ulsan Hyundai has been postponed.

Travel restrictions due to the coronavirus outbreak between Korea and Australia mean the March 18 match in Perth cannot be held as scheduled, the AFC confirmed on Monday.

A new date for the fixture is yet to be announced as it becomes the latest match in the competition to be affected by the impact of the virus.

The Glory were facing a potential three-year ban from the ACL and a $50,000 fine last month when they expressed concern about travelling to Korea for the initial tie between the two clubs.

Organisers later postponed that match to April 7.

That was originally the date that Glory were meant to host their Korean opponents in Perth but now the rescheduled March 18 game will have to be held at a later date.

The virus outbreak has caused widespread chaos to the ACL fixture, with matches involving Chinese opposition also affected.

Glory have only played one match so far in their maiden Champions League campaign, a narrow 1-0 loss to FC Tokyo in Japan on February 18.
