About Us

Ultimate A-League started life as a university studio project in 2005, with the aim of building a functional list of players for the then-new Hyundai A-League competition.

After encouragement from studio supervisors, Ultimate A-League rapidly expanded to capture manager, stadium, referee, and — most importantly — match data to supplement the existing player data.

In 2008, a new Records section (now known as Statistics) was added to complete the first version of Ultimate A-League, which was made publicly available at www.ultimatealeague.com later that year.

The 2010s would see Ultimate A-League join the Hamson Design Group, the addition of the Ultimate A-League App (for iOS and Android), the establishment of the Ultimate A-League Podcast (hosted by Kristian Dwyer), along with a News section to produce match reports, opinion, and statistically-focussed articles.

By 2020, Ultimate A-League had shifted focus back to its statistical roots, and a complete rebuild of the website was undertaken. In late 2021, the third major version of the Ultimate A-League website was launched.
