It’s win or go home time for the Socceroos as the Asian Cup progresses to the knockout stage. Australia’s Round of 16 match will pit them against Uzbekistan – but when does it start?
The answer to that question depends, of course, a little on where in Australia you are. Unforuntately for most Aussies, this one will be taking place pretty much in the middle of the night.
In most time zones the match starts on early Tuesday morning (22 January), and if not then, late Monday (21 January) night – so you’ll either want to stay up late on Monday, or wake up early on Tuesday.
If you’re watching the match from New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania or the ACT, then you’re in the AEDT time zone, where the match will kick-off at 1am on Tuesday.
If you’re watching the match from South Australia, then you’re in the ACDT time zone, where the match will kick-off at 12:30am.
If you’re watching the match from Queensland, then you’re in the AEST time zone, where the match will kick-off at 12am midnight.
If you’re watching the match from Northern Territory, then you’re in the ACST time zone, where the match will kick-off at 11:30pm (and it will still be Monday night).
If you’re watching the match from Western Australian, then you’re in the AWST time zone, where the match will kick-off at 10pm.
If they win, the Socceroos will go on to face either Kyrgyzstan or home nation the United Arab Emirates in the next quarterfinals.
