With professional sport returning after the shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, the conclusion of the 2019/20 A-League season will now be a sprint to the finish. The league plans to cram 27 games into a 28-day timeframe, with the competition requiring another tweak after the three Victorian teams needed to quarantine in Sydney.
The finals series will commence on 22 August. We have the full A-League fixture's available here.
How to watch A-League live
To catch what should be an exciting end to the season, the broadcast rights for every A-League game are owned by Kayo Sports, Fox Sports and My Football. All three providers also have the entire A-League Finals Series live.
ABC has the rights to show the 5pm (AEST) Saturday game each round on ABC TV and iview. Part of the ABC's agreement also allows them to show the A-League Finals Series on delay. Let's take a closer look at these A-League streaming options.

Stream the A-League on Kayo Sports
Our pick for the best A-League streaming experience is Kayo Sports. Launched at the end of 2018, Kayo is a dedicated sports viewing experience that takes 13 of the best sports channels available in Foxtel's premium Sport Pack add-on and places them in their own app. In addition Kayo has its own exclusive content which includes over 50 sports.
The price is only $25/month for a basic subscription, this allows you to stream from two devices at once. Then there's the premium subscription at $35/month, its sole benefit is to stream three screens simultaneously. Plus you can test out Kayo for free for the first 14 days.
We have a detailed review of Kayo Sports that will flesh out all the information for you, but the key takeaways are the excellent user interface, its accessibility (PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Apple TV, Telstra TV, Android TV, Chromecast and Samsung TV 2017 or later) and the unique viewing features. The latter includes SplitView (where you can watch four channels at once), multiple camera angles for some sports, a picture-in-picture mode, no spoilers, Kayo Minis and more.
Monday's on Kayo are known as goal day, with a special highlights package dropping weekly. It'll showcase every goal and all the best strikes from the previous round.
Stream the A-League on Foxtel
If you want to watch content beyond sport, such as Ballers, The Walking Dead or lifestyle programming, then Foxtel is your best option. The Sport Pack costs $29 per month and must be added onto the base Pop and Lifestyle pack whether you choose the traditional Foxtel IQ experience (which comes with the Foxtel Go live streaming app) or the dedicated live stream Foxtel Now service. This can push the cost to as high as $74 or $54 per month respectively.
If you already have a Foxtel subscription with the Sport Pack, you can simply use the Foxtel Go app to live stream A-League games on your preferred device. In the case of Foxtel Now, there's a 10-day free trial available too. Note that none of the features found on Kayo Sports except for Minis are available through the Foxtel services.
Watch A-League on ABC
The weekly 5pm AEST Saturday game will be shown in HD on ABC TV. The match is also live streamed on ABC iview. Accessing the service is free of charge. ABC has access to the entire A-League Finals Series, too but it's on delay. If you're a dedicated fan, this A-League streaming option is quite limited, plus there are only four of these matches left this season.
Stream A-League on MyFootball Live App
As the official A-League streaming option, the MyFootball Live App has plenty of benefits. It's a portal for news, information and behind-the-scenes programming. Telstra mobile customers get access to the app for free, while non-Telstra-mobile customers can pay $6.99 for a monthly Live Pass.
Where it falls down is in its accessibility. The app is only available on iOS and Android devices and is limited to a 7-inch display. It also doesn't offer much in the way of global leagues or programming. You do get select FFA Cup, Socceroos and Matildas games, but when compared to Kayo Sports, it's no where near as impressive. Then again, if you just want A-League on your mobile, that shouldn't matter.
