The 45th season of top-flight football in Australia got underway on Friday 19 November, with reigning champions Melbourne City kicking things off at home against the Brisbane Roar. 12 teams are once again competing in the nation's premier competition.
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.

When is the 2021/22 A-League season?
The 2021/22 A-League season began on Friday 19 November. The competition runs through until April when the finals series will commence.
How to watch the A-League live
Broadcasting rights for the A-League have been won by Channel 10, its US owner ViacomCBS and its new streaming service Paramount Plus, which was launched in August.
Channel 10 will broadcast an A-League match every Saturday night at 7:30pm AEDT during the season with the broadcast to be called Football Night on Ten. All free-to-air matches will also be simulcast on the 10 play streaming platform. Every single match each week will be live and on-demand on Paramount Plus.
The A-League will no longer be on Fox Sports services Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now and Kayo Sports, nor will there be a weekly A-League fixture on ABC.
Watch the A-League on free-to-air TV
As mentioned above, both Channel 10 and 10 play will show 1 live match per week on Saturday nights. 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 any of the bicycle kicks and crunching tackles, you need a subscription to Paramount Plus.
Stream the A-League on Paramount Plus
Paramount Plus officially launched in August and costs $8.99 per month or $89.99 for a discounted annual pass. It has a 7-day free trial for new users.
The new service will be the home of Australia's A-League and W-League football competitions, along with some Socceroos and Matildas matches and England's FA Cup.
