FFA Won't Alter A-League Format Despite Lack Of Clarity Among Contenders
Published April 1, 2014
Eight of the 10 A-League clubs have just two games left to play in the regular season, "but the lack of clarity among the contenders has not prompted the Football Federation of Australia to alter the competition's format for future seasons," according to Dominic Bossi of the SYDNEY MORNING HERALD. Brisbane Roar is the only club whose fate is already determined after it "clinched the premiership last week." Second-placed Central Coast Mariners is also locked in to play finals football "but can still finish as low as sixth depending on other results." A-League President Damien de Bohun said, “This year’s Hyundai A-League is coming to a thrilling climax, there’s no doubt about it. ... From a Hyundai A-League perspective, it is a great way to finish what has been another season of positive growth for the game, with crowds, TV ratings and membership all up on figures from last season for the third straight season" (SMH, 3/31).
