Wagga City Wanderers will kick off their season proper at home against Tuggeranong United FC in March.
It will be a huge start to the newly-renamed Capital Premier League (CPL) season as the Wanderers will welcome a number of former players back to their home turf at Gissing Oval.
It will be an early homecoming for former Wanderers young gun Luke Stevens, who has signed with Tuggeranong United.
It won't only be Stevens who returns home to take on his old club with premiership Wanderers player Dylan Berkrey, Fraser Burns and Pat Hislop also among the former Wagga City players now at Tuggeranong United.
Wanderers under 23s coach and Football Wagga development officer Liam Dedini said it will be a great way to start the season.
"There will be plenty of interest in the game and it's a chance to get a massive crowd, which is good," Dedini said.
