Breaking down the 2015/16 A-League fixture

6812481635_ed463ae1fa_bThe 2015/16 A-League fixture was released earlier today and, thankfully, we can look forward to a more compact and sensible calendar now that the Asian Cup is just a distant (amazing) memory.

This season we’ll see less 3pm kick-off times on Sunday’s, with Sunday double-headers predominantly kicking off at 5pm and 7pm on the east coast.

Early games on Saturday’s have been pushed back from 5pm to 5:15, and a ‘fluid’ round 27 has been scheduled to allow for the announcement of overlapping Asian Champions League fixtures in that week.

Player of the Season winner announced

POTY_bannerAfter each game of the 2014/15 A-League season, our Ultimate A-League match reporters have submitted their three “best-on-field” votes for our inaugural Ultimate A-League Player of the Season award.

144 different players polled votes this season, meaning that well over 50% of the players who took part in the A-League this season polled at least one vote in our count.

Well, now that the 135 game regular season has come to an end, we’ve tallied up the votes they submitted and here are our top 3 polling players for the 2014/15 season:

 

In third place in our #ALeague Player of the Season count is @wellingtonphoenix striker Nathan Burns, with 24 votes.

A-League Fan Checklist

5531531815_627ea59109_bDon’t panic, but there’s just over 24 hours left until the 2014/15 A-League season kicks off.

And if you haven’t been paying full attention during the long off-season, you might’ve missed out on some key information.
