How to watch the A-League soccer in Australia

Fact Checked Fact Checked

There’s no shortage of football fans here in Australia, but while we might not always agree on how the ball should be handled, we can all agree that it makes for good TV! But for those who are fans of the way football is traditionally played (i.e. the proper way), where can you catch the local action of the A-League? Find out in this Canstar Blue guide.

Watch A-League in Australia

A-League Football

To watch the A-League, you can stream live or on-demand via Paramount+, or tune into Channel 10 for free-to-air broadcasts.

A-League on Paramount+

Paramount+ is the latest home for A-League content, with the platform taking over Ten All Access, and will cover every match of the 2023-24 A-League season for both the men’s and women’s competition.

A-League on Channel 10

In a recent broadcast deal which has shaken up the dynamic of the A-League, ViacomCBS has taken over the A-League. This means that Fox Sports will no longer have broadcasting rights, and two new contenders will be streaming Australia’s footballing league – the first of which is Channel 10. Football fans will be able to catch at least one Saturday night game on Channel 10, as well as one W-League game being broadcast on 10 Bold every Sunday. Games will also be streamed on 10 Play for those who can’t catch the game live, with match highlights also available.

When does the A-League season start?

Both A-League competitions – including the Men’s and Women’s – will kick off in October, although the exact date the first whistle will blow is slightly different, with the Women’s competition starting a week earlier. 

Liberty A-League Women

The Women’s A-League competition will kick off on the weekend of October 14 and 15 and will continue in to a standard 22 game format to meet global benchmarks. After a successful season in 2022-23 and the Women’s World Cup, this year will see the Central Coast Mariners rejoin the league.

Isuzu UTE A-League Men

The Men’s A-League competition will follow the weekend after the women’s on October 20 to 22. With growth in viewers for the 2022-23 season, this season looks promising once again for the Men’s competition.
