Sydney FC and the Melbourne Victory are both bound for the A-League finals, but their final round clash will still be critical ahead of the knockout action commencing. This is The Roar‘s guide to streaming the match online and watching it on TV.

How to watch the match on TV

The best way to watch this final round match on TV will be through Fox Sports. They have live coverage of every single A-League game throughout the season, with no ads during live play.

To watch the coverage on Fox Sports, you will need to have a valid Foxtel TV subscription, complete with the sports package to avoid disappointment.

The broadcast of the game on Fox Sports will begin at the conclusion of the previous game, which kicks off at 5:35pm (AEST) and sees the Wellington Phoenix take on Melbourne City.

If you are looking to watch the game on free-to-air TV, you will need to use Channel Ten’s secondary station, One HD.

How to live stream the match online

For those looking to stream the game, you will need to be downloading one of Foxtel’s dedicated streaming applications. It’s important to understand which one is the best for you to use though.

The first of those is Foxtel Now, which starts from $39 per month. It’s better to use if you don’t already have a TV subscription.


For those who already have existing login details for Foxtel, you would be best off using the Foxtel App, which is free to download and use after verification.

Both are available for use on any device you may own.

What you need to know about the match

The match is scheduled to kick-off at 7:50pm (AEST) on Friday, April 13 at Allianz Stadium in Sydney.

Sydney FC have already wrapped up the minor premiership (also known as the premiers’ plate) heading into a match typically known in football circles as the ‘Big Blue.’

The Victory, meanwhile, will want to move further inside the top six with a win after a season full of inconsistencies.

Sydney’s form hasn’t been where it generally has over the past 24 months, but they are a classy side and will be looking to put themselves right back on the front foot heading into the finals series.

The sides met in the 2016-17 A-League grand final, with Sydney backing up their premiers’ plate and emerging winners after a thrilling penalty shootout on that occasion, before the Sky Blues completed the treble, winning the FA Cup this season to hold all three FFA trophies at the same time.


Make sure you don’t miss a minute of the A-League by watching it on Fox Sports via Foxtel. From now until 21st April, you can subscribe to the Foxtel Sports and Entertainment packs from just $39 per month for 12 months.
