Tune in to ABC TV each Sunday at 3pm nationally for LIVE Westfield W-League action, this week featuring a potentially epic match-up as ambitious Sydney FC welcome newly-crowned premiers Perth Glory.

The quality of the individuals spread among the two teams is almost without par and spectators at Wollongong’s superb WIN Stadium, not to mention national TV viewers, are set for a treat.

It will also be a reunion of sorts as Caitlin Foord and Sam Kerr return to face their old team for the first time away from home since their off-season move. For Wollongong starlet Foord, the match also marks a rare opportunity to turn out in her hometown.

Following a shocking mid-season Sydney FC know they can lock up a semi-final berth with victory here, and they can also put one hand on a home semi-final. There is indeed much at stake for the Sky Blues.

Perth Glory head east on a massive high, and they proudly boast their maiden Westfield W-League silverware after nailing down top spot in the last round.

The challenge now for Jamie Harnwell’s free-scoring side is to maintain that momentum into the finals. And they could barely have wished for a tougher task than away to Sydney FC.

The ABC TV Sunday afternoon broadcast games are hosted by Stephanie Brantz, with former Westfield Matildas and W-League star Sarah Walsh joining Peter Wilkins in commentary.

Catch all the action Live nationally at 3.00pm Sunday on ABC TV, or catch up from Monday on ABC iView with a full replay each Tuesday at 3.30am.
