A-League 2019/20

The stars of the Hyundai A-League joined forces with the FOX SPORTS football team in Sydney today to launch the 2019/20 Hyundai A-League season.

FOX SPORTS hosts Tara Rushton and Adam Peacock were joined by Head of Leagues Greg O’Rourke along with stars of the game to officially launch the new season which begins this weekend.

Speaking at today’s launch, O’Rourke said: “The Hyundai A-League 2019/20 season will see the dawn of a new era for the competition.

“We have an expanded league with the introduction of our newest club, Western United FC. They will provide a new narrative, new rivalries and new fans in one of the fastest growing regions in Australia.

“We have 6 of the 11 clubs with new coaches and a desire to change their new clubs fortunes, Western Sydney Wanderers are finally returning to Bankwest Stadium and all clubs have recruited well.”

Head of FOX SPORTS Peter Campbell said: “There is so much to look forward to this summer and FOX SPORTS will be the destination for fans to see all of the ad-break free action of every game Live, including the finals, of the Hyundai A-League and the Westfield W-League.”

FOX SPORTS has been there since the first season of the Hyundai A-League and continues its unwavering commitment to football for the 2019/20 season.

Seems like there’s been significant cutbacks to the A-League coverage - noticed there’s no mention either in that press release or in the TV guide of programs like ‘Matchday Saturday’ or ‘Shootout’

yes that is correct. Only a half-hour pre-game and 15 minute post-game. The A-League Hour has also been axed, replaced by A-League mini-matches (packaged highlights) on Monday nights from 7.30pm AEDT on 505, sandwiched inbetween lots of golf. Fox Sports cannot wait until their rights lapse, I’m sure Optus Sport will take it over after that.

They’re still referring to Saturday’s coverage as ‘Matchday Saturday’ so perhaps that hasn’t changed.

One other thing I’ve noticed is they’ve eliminated having a separate sideline reporter. Both last night (for the Socceroos match) and tonight, one of the ‘desk pundits’ conducted the HT & FT player interviews

Typhoon Hagibis forced yesterday’s qualifying for the Japanese F1 Grand Prix to be postponed to 10am local time (12pm AEDT) this morning, followed by the race at 4.10pm AEDT. Both events will be shown live on Fox Sports 507, with Bathurst 1000 on 506.

2019 FFA Cup Final

The stage is set for the decider, and football fans will be able to watch all the action unfold of the FFA Cup 2019 Final LIVE and EXCLUSIVE, with no ad-breaks during play and in HD on FOX SPORTS, on Foxtel.

On Wednesday, October 23, reigning FFA Cup champions Adelaide United will be looking to create history and become the first team to win back-to-back titles when they go head-to-head against Melbourne City FC at Coopers Stadium, Adelaide where the winning team will be crowned FFA Cup 2019 Champions.

The Reds qualified for their third consecutive FFA Cup Final after beating Central Coast Mariners in a semi-final thriller, coming from behind at half-time to win 2-1.

Melbourne City secured their spot with a comfortable semi-final win against member federation team Brisbane Strikers, and are eager to reclaim the FFA Cup title they last won in 2016.

Coverage begins from 7.00pm AEDT, with the Final kicking off at 7.30pm AEDT on FOX SPORTS 505.

Tara Rushton will host FOX SPORTS’ coverage with expert commentators Robbie Slater, Simon Hill, Andy Harper and Robbie Cornthwaite calling all of the action.

FOX SPORTS’ expert commentator Simon Hill said: “The FFA Cup has quickly become an iconic and much loved part of the football landscape in Australia. We should have a fitting finale between two clubs with great Cup pedigree, and Coopers will be rocking, just like it was for last year’s Final.”

FOX SPORTS’ expert commentator Robbie Slater said: “The FFA Cup has been another enjoyable tournament this year and has shown the gap between the NPL teams and A-League clubs is getting closer.

“Adelaide United have again showed that they have a magic approach to this tournament. It’s their fourth time in the Final and they’ll be gunning for their third title.

“Adelaide haven’t lost an FFA Cup match at Coopers Stadium so will start the game as favourites, but you can’t write off Melbourne City who have been really good during this tournament.”

The Final precedes a blockbuster Saturday night featuring some of the biggest rivalries in football, Round 3 of the 2019/20 Hyundai A-League hosts the first Sydney derby between Western Sydney Wanderers and Sydney FC set to light up Bankwest Stadium, before Spanish rivals FC Barcelona and Real Madrid go head-to-head for the first El Clásico of the 2019/20 La Liga season.

Watch every match of the 2019/20 Hyundai A-League Season LIVE, ad-break free during play and in HD.

Foxtel subscribers can also watch or stream FOX SPORTS’ coverage of the FFA Cup 2019 Final and every match of 2019/20 Hyundai A-League Season on Foxtel Go.

FOX SPORTS Minis also offers fans a condensed highlights package that can be accessed on demand on their TV, tablet or smart device through Foxtel and Foxtel Go for those who miss the action live.

FOX SPORTS is available on Foxtel.

I see Brenton Speed is calling the Sydney A-league derby tonight.

I know he has called NRL and AFL games before, but didn’t know he could call soccer games too.

Very versatile! Is there anything he can’t call?

He used to call NBL back in the days when Fox Sports had the rights to it.

He has always called Soccer & in the last 2 years started doing NRL.

Goes to show how often I look at the A-League!

:laughing:

Auckland’s Eden Park will host the first ever NRL/Super Rugby doubleheader in 2020.


Fox Sports has the rights to the doubleheader, but will it be shown across two channels (Fox League and Fox Sports) or simulcast on both channels?

I think the FOX coverage will be on separate channels with their own pre/post game shows whilst the other game is on.

Well yesterday it was revealed that WAU lost its 2nd driver (Scot Pye) and one would think he is going to Team 18, Pye management team is 888 owner Roland Dane and Roland Dane supplies cars via customer agreement to Team 18 so that answer is done.

As for Simona, WAU now has a spot open, or she might go to Tickford depending on what Chaz decides to do.
