Countdown starts towards campaign of football to keep fans transfixed
APL
Updated: 2 hrs ago
Seven months of the best of Australian football will kick off on October 30, it was revealed today, as clubs, players and fans gear up for the launch of the game’s new home on Network 10 and Paramount+.
Just weeks after Melbourne City secured the A-League championship to close off a widely praised season for both the A-League and the W-League, the start and finish dates for the new campaigns were unveiled today by the Australian Professional Leagues (APL).
The new A-League season will kick off on October 30 and the W-League a fortnight later on November 13, building on the excitement of the last domestic campaigns and Olympic adventures for both the Matildas and Olyroos.
The new seasons will herald the first domestic football on Network 10 and Paramount+ as the multi-year agreement to show both leagues, the Socceroos and Matildas and the FFA Cup gets underway. Paramount+ officially launches on August 11 with the new streaming service and APL offering all football fans the opportunity to bundle Paramount+ into their club memberships.
The men’s season will kick off on October 30, with a suitably high-octane clash as the first of Network 10’s weekly Saturday night football broadcasts.
All eyes will then be on the women’s league when it kicks off on November 13, with the opening fixture shown on free-to-air.
The A-League will pause for that weekend during the men’s international window, after APL and Football Australia worked together to put the fans first and reduce the number of club-v-country clashes.
The club football season will then reach a crescendo with the A-League Grand Final scheduled to be played on May 28.
Danny Townsend, APL managing director, said: “This is a huge year for Australian football and now we can all start the countdown to the start of the men’s and women’s seasons. We’ve seen the whole country get behind the Olyroos and Matildas, and from October and November, fans can get all the leagues’ action on Network 10 and Paramount+.
“We’re less than two weeks out from the launch of Paramount+, and three months away from seeing the very first domestic football on the platform in Australia, as well as in every Australian home on Network 10.”
As with last season, the fixtures calendar will contain a number of contingency measures to allow for disruption caused by COVID-19 and associated border closures.

Good move?

So many aussies coming home from the likes of Korea, Saudi Arabia etc. The money's great but the level isn't a step up and many have probably found the lifestyle tough during covid.


Really we need any aussies not playing in EPL, Championship, Bundesliga, Serie A, Eredivise, Ligue 1, La Liga, Turkish Super Liga, Celtic / Rangers or Portugal to be playing in the A League. And they will if the money is there.

Could be awhile with all the Covid chaos. The FFA Cup (or whatever it gets renamed to) as at huge risk right now.
Didnt they originally say October for the start date? Hopefully they can get away with late october/early november. Can really only see the ffa cup (as it is called in this years comp) in December or January in between rounds.
