Anyone can contribute to The Roar and have their work featured alongside some of Australia’s most prominent sports journalists.
With the 2019-20 A-League season soon to get underway, this is your handy guide on how to catch all the action, whether it be through live streaming online, on TV, or listening in via radio.
Live streaming online
The easiest way to live stream the A-League will be through Kayo Sports, a service that allows you to stream any Fox Sports content without requiring you to subscribing to any other Foxtel channels. They will have, at the very least, all of Foxtel’s A-League matches live and on-demand.
You can also live stream A-League matches through the Telstra Stream Football app.
There are a handful of other options available to live stream the A-League – however, most require a Foxtel subscription of some kind.
For those already subscribed to the pay-TV service, you can simply use the Foxtel App to stream any A-League matches live. The Foxtel App is included as part of any standard subscription although, obviously, your TV subscription will need the sports package included if you want to stream sports channels.
If you don’t already have a plan, you can to subscribe independently to Foxtel Now, which a streaming-only version of Foxtel.
The Roar will also be running a live blog of every match of the A-League season, and will have highlights of every match available after the game as well.
Fox Sports will have every match of the A-League live so a Foxtel subscription is the way to go if you want to catch your team every week. Crucially, they are the exclusive live broadcasters of the A-League finals.
As far as free-to-air coverage goes, the ABC will broadcast 29 live matches throughout the season, usually the Saturday game at 5pm. They will have delayed broadcasts of one elimination final, one semi-final and the grand final.
A host of different radio stations have the rights to A-League matches in 2019-20. However, the only places to hear every match live will be through the official A-League website or Crocmedia’s My Football Nation.
Both Melbourne City and Melbourne Victory will have their games called by 1116 SEN, the Western Sydney Wanderers will feature on Super Radio Network, Adelaide United matches will be on FIVEaa, while Brisbane Roar are on 4BC and Perth Glory on 6PR.
There are no dedicated radio network deals announced for Sydney FC, Wellington Phoenix or the Newcastle Jets as of yet.
