When is the A-League season?
Australia’s premiere soccer competition is the A-League, with 12 franchises from both Australia and New Zealand taking part. With expansion seemingly taking place in the A-League every season, it is one of the fastest growing football competitions on the planet. Traditionally, the A-League season gets underway in October and concludes in April/May the following year.
With COVID 19 gripping Australia, the 2019-20 A-League season was decimated before being played out behind closed doors between June and August 2020.
From the 2020-21 season onwards, there will be 12 teams taking part in the A-League regular season. Each team plays 27 matches – with the top 6 teams progressing through to the play-offs.
From here, the teams placed 3rd to 6th face off for the right to take on the top 2 sides in the elimination final, with the semi-finals always featuring the two highest finishing sides in the league table before the A-League Grand Final concludes the season.
