In fantastic news for Bulls fans, the venue for Sunday's A-League semi-final between Macarthur FC and Melbourne City has been moved to NSW.

The clash will now take place at Kogarah's Netstrata Jubilee Stadium from 4pm on June 20.

The move comes amid ongoing Covid restrictions in Melbourne, where the match was originally going to be held with the higher-placed Melbourne City FC as the home side.

But the A-League announced this afternoon that the move to a neutral venue would allow for a crowd of excited fans to attend the match.

"I share the frustration of Melbourne City and the Club's supporters that the home A-League Semi Final they had earned by being Premiers can't be played at AAMI Park," A-League Commissioner Greg O'Rourke said today.

"But with the game due to be played in less than four days, we have had to make the decision to move it to Sydney so that both teams can plan accordingly.

"Should Melbourne City win through and earn the right to host the A-League 2021 Grand Final, we very much hope that their supporters will be able to attend in person at AAMI Park should restrictions by then allow it."

The winner of the Macarthur FC and Melbourne City semi final will face the victor from Saturday's Sydney FC and Adelaide United clash (also at Kogarah) in the grand final on June 26.
