The growth of the Hyundai A-League continues to gather pace outside Australia with 65 countries around the world exposed to A-League action as well as a global streaming deal that means all 127 regular season matches can be watched on line.
The increase in the number of countries and people exposed to the Hyundai A-League highlights the unique global reach football can deliver.
Full match broadcasts are available in the USA, China, Italy, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Canada, the Caribbean, Hong Kong, Singapore and Myanmar.
On top of full match broadcasts, highlights of Hyundai A-League matches can be viewed in 53 countries throughout Asia and the Middle East, including Japan and South Korea, on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s “Australian Network”.
“The growth of the Hyundai A-League has been extraordinary in the last two years and that is starting to bear fruit overseas as more and more football fans around the world develop an appetite for our national competition,” said FFA CEO David Gallop.
“The arrival of marquee players like Alessandro Del Piero, Emile Heskey and Shinji Ono has opened the eyes of the world to the Hyundai A-League and now they can watch all of our stars in action on a weekly basis.”
In a significant boost for ex-pats, Australians travelling overseas and Hyundai A-League fans in countries where matches are not broadcast, fans can watch every game live by subscribing to www.aleague.livesport.tv, dramatically increasing the availability around the globe.
“The way we watch live sport and consume news is changing at a rapid pace so we are extremely pleased to be able to offer football fans all over the world this opportunity to watch all 127 games through the www.aleague.livesport.tv platform.”
