The remainder of the A-League season will play out mainly in New South Wales because of government travel restrictions imposed to curb the spread of the coronavirus, organisers of Australia's top flight said on Wednesday.
Five venues in NSW and one in Queensland's Gold Coast have been confirmed to host matches, with the location of home games for the competition's three Melbourne teams yet to be determined, fixtures released on Wednesday showed.
Football Federation Australia's head of leagues Greg O'Rourke said venues in other states might come into play if government restrictions were eased.
"As we are a truly national game, the current border controls means that some of the matchday venues may need to change," O'Rourke said in a statement.
"However, we have secured venues in both a 'NSW Hub model' and a hybrid hub model which has most games in NSW but allows for a few games in other states.
"Whilst we don't see the draw changing, the planning we have undertaken provides us with agility to shift between certain states if required."
The A-League was suspended in March due to COVID-19, with six rounds of the regular season and the playoffs left to play.
Third-placed Wellington Phoenix, the only New Zealand team in the competition, are drawn to play all their matches in NSW.
But they all face relocation north afterwards and will likely finish their seasons in NSW.
The A-League also confirmed its playoffs dates, with the first matches starting on Aug. 15, the semifinals on Aug. 19-20 and the championship-deciding Grand Final on Aug. 23.
