Bidding war over A-League and W-League

10 and Stan Sport said to be in the running for football rights, with most matches likely to be behind a paywall.

10 is one of two primary contenders for the broadcast rights to the A-League and W-League, according to media reports.

But it isn’t clear if they are destined for Paramount+ if 10 were to win the rights.

Stan Sport is said to be the other contender in the bidding.

Sydney Morning Herald suggests both deals would involve a free-to-air element on either 10 or Nine’s secondary channels, but the vast majority of A-League and W-League matches would be behind a subscription paywall.

FOX Sports are also not yet out of the picture and could launch a late bid through Kayo Sports.

The A-League and W-League rights are being negotiated independently of Football Australia for the first time, and likely to be settled this week.

  1. Stan need to revamp their sports channel if it ambitiously plans to expand its sports content courtesy of Nine, A-League would be a good inclusion though it will need promotion.

  2. Whoever gets it as long as they freshen up the commentary team.Currently Brenton Speed and Michael Zappone are about the only 2 who they should consider , but please no Simon Hill , no excitement in his commentary though he will get a gig if Fox Sports miss out
