This season, the Australia A league will offer 130 extra games on free-to-air TV with no ad interruptions as part of a revised broadcast schedule agreed upon with host broadcasters the 10 Network and Paramount Plus.
As part of a conscious effort to broaden access to the competitions in the second season of a five-year broadcast arrangement, an extra game from each round of the Isuzu UTE A-League Men’s season and the entire Liberty A-League Women’s season will be free to watch!
So no more going onto random websites that offer a soccer scores live segment, instead, you can watch all the matches on your TV!
As the countdown to the Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand begins, every game in all 20 rounds of the expanded A-League Women – including the finals – will be available for free on 10 Play and Paramount+.
Meanwhile, after having half of the A-League Men’s games moved due to COVID and weather issues last season, two of the top matches will be shown live and free on 10 Bold at 7.45pm every Saturday and 3pm every Sunday afternoon – designed to ensure fans know exactly when games are available to watch.
Furthermore, all games in both leagues will be broadcast without commercial interruptions, addressing a major complaint raised by fans last season.
“Making every single Liberty A-League Women game available live and free on 10 Play means that every girl in Australia can turn on their device and have sporting role models at their fingertips,” said Australian Professional Leagues CEO Danny Townsend.
“With nine months to go until the FIFA 2023 Women’s World Cup, we are maximising the opportunity to access the game at every level.
“Paramount ANZ is a committed partner in growing football in Australia, and this season’s broadcast schedule is designed to deliver more football to more Australian homes with 26 additional men’s games on 10 Bold and almost 100 women’s games on 10 Play.
“Football fans will know exactly where and when they will be able to watch A-Leagues football, week in and week out.”
Australian soccer league season (men) will begin on 7 October and go until 30 April, followed by a seven-match finals series in May, with a break for the World Cup from 13 November to 9 December.
The Liberty A-League Women fixture is due to be announced in the coming days but is expected to begin at the end of November.
