A-Leagues Commissioner Nick Garcia said: “We would like to congratulate Melbourne City and Sydney FC on qualifying for the 2024 Liberty A-League Women Grand Final. Both sides have been the benchmark all season and it’s fitting that the two best sides of the regular season will battle it out for the Liberty A-League Women Championship.

“It’s been a record-breaking year in the Liberty A-League Women — with record crowds, club memberships and broadcast viewers — and we’ve seen exciting football across the regular season and final series.

“With stars on show like CommBank Matildas Cortnee Vine and Jada Whyman, and Football Ferns Hannah Wilkinson and Rebekah Stott, along with the next generation of stars, it’s fitting that our showpiece event will take place in Female Football Week.

“We can’t wait to celebrate our grand final and an incredible 12 months for women’s football with the Australian football community.”
