City will be a hot favourite to defend their title. A-League coach of the year Patrick Kisnorbo will again lead City, with 3-time Golden Boot winner Jamie Maclaren guiding the team upfront again. This time around, the Australian competition has a new broadcaster.

How to watch the A-League finals live
Broadcasting rights for the A-League are with ViacomCBS, owner of Channel 10 and streaming service Paramount Plus, which was launched in August 2021.
During the regular season, Channel 10 broadcast an A-League match every Saturday night at 7:30pm AEST. All free-to-air matches were simulcast on the 10 play streaming platform. Every single match of the A-League is live and on demand on Paramount Plus.
Watch the A-League finals on free-to-air TV
After both Channel 10 and 10 play showing 1 live match a week on Saturday nights during the season, you will also be able to watch the A-League finals on free-to-air as well. The A-League finals will screen across the 10 Network, with games on either the main channel or 10 Bold as well as 10 play. That might be okay for the casual A-League observer, but to watch your team every week or make sure you don't have to miss anything, you need a subscription to Paramount Plus.
