The 2018/19 season will be the 14th edition of the A-League, Australia’s top domestic soccer league, and with up to eight teams shaping up as legitimate challengers, it’s more important than ever to be keep up with all of the action. So what’s the best way to make sure you don’t miss it?
As always, the easiest way is to catch it live on your big screen TV, but it isn’t always feasible to be home when your favourite team is playing. Fortunately, with Telstra securing the mobile rights for the next five years, now you don’t have to be.
Starting this season, you’ll be able to catch all the action from a number of portable devices through Telstra’s My Football Live app, allowing you to watch more of the game than ever before. With the 2018/19 season appearing to be one of the closest in the league’s history, this opportunity isn’t to be missed.
A-League 2018/19 Preview
The 2018/19 A-League season will kick off on the 19th of October, with ten teams desperate to make it through to the final day of the season in May of next year. Melbourne Victory will head in as reigning champions, with a good chance to make it two years in a row, but they have been beaten for favouritism by the team they defeated in the Grand Final, Sydney FC. The other two Melbourne and Sydney based football teams are also well placed, while Perth and Newcastle round out the list of top contenders.

What Does the My Football Live App Offer?
First and foremost, Telstra’s My Football Live app allows A-League fans to access live streaming of every game of the season. On top of that, subscribers will be able to tune in to select FFA Cup, Westfield W-League, Westfield Matilda and Caltex Socceroos games. While the live streaming is the most attractive element of the app, it will also be a reliable source of news and information for all things Australian football.
How Can You Access It?
The easiest way to access the app is to be a Telstra customer. If this is you, you’ll have free and immediate access to the Telstra Live Pass, which enables you to watch all games being live streamed, including a host of matches not available on free to air TV. Not only is it free for Telstra customers, but it will also be data free, enabling you to stay on top of all the action without burning through your plan.
If you aren’t a Telstra customer, you can still download the app for free, but to access A League live streamingyou’ll need to pay for the Telstra Live Pass, which you can do as soon as the season gets underway. You can purchase this either weekly, monthly, or for the entire year — further details about pricing are available below.
The app is compatible with iOS and Android devices (it is unavailable on the Windows platforms). To use it, subscribers will need a mobile or tablet.
