Aussie live sports is kicking it up a notch with the return of the 2019-20 season of the Hyundai A-League football. After months in hiatus, the remaining 32 matches are to be fought out in 39 days, 27 of which will be held in 28 days – a massive shot of adrenaline for football-starved Aussie fans.
Most of the games will be played in NSW, and reigning champions Sydney FC are back to defend their title. They’re already on top of the ladder but the team will have its work cut out for it.
And all the football you can take in is available to watch live and on-demand, including the finals to be held on August 15.
There’s a few ways to watch the Hyundai A-League this season – the ABC has become the official free-to-air partner of the competition, and will air only the Saturday 5pm AEST time slot live; all other matches, including the finals, will be delayed broadcasts.
However, if you don’t want to miss a single kick, you’ll need to stick with Kayo Sports – the sports-specific streaming service has the official broadcast rights to all the matches.
The rest of the A-League matches are also available on Telstra’s MyFootball Live app – a data-free service for Telstra customers while non-Telstra customers will need to shell out AU$6.99 a month for a Live Pass.
