So the NRL is finished for the year, the AFL done and dusted and Australians are wondering what they should be watching and supporting over the summer. Well fear not Aussies, I have the exact thing you are looking for, and it is Australian made.
The Hyundai A-League spreads its wings to fly again this season, bringing with it the ever growing might of Australian soccer. This year there are two names on everyone's lips, Harry Kewell and Brett Emerton. That is right, the highly talented Socceroos have come back to Australia despite the interest (and unimaginable contract offers) from Europe in what is a testament to the increasing quality of the A-League. With last year's champions Brisbane Roar promising to further improve on last year's dominant display of Barcelonaesque soccer, Kewell's news club Melbourne Victory looking to put away the demons of last year, and Sydney FC fans demanding consistency from the former champions come qualifying failures, this year already is starting to show just how close the race will be to be crowned champions.
The season begins on the 8th of October at 4.30pm with the struggling Newcastle Jets taking on the Melbourne Heart, who are looking to improve on their impressive début season. Now everyone knows there are two types of matches you look for before the season has even begun, the local derbies, and the rivalries that have developed over the years, and the first round offers us one of the most heated rivalries in the short history of the A-League, Melbourne Victory vs. Sydney FC.
It also happens that the two biggest stars to ever sign for A-League clubs will be opposing each other in this match, so why would you even question watching the spectacle that always promises to deliver controversy, fan loyalty and truly breathtaking skill? So while these matches are broadcasted on Fox Sports live every week, why not go and support your team from the grandstands. The perfect day for the family, couples or even just the single person who is passionate about their soccer. Support your team, support your league and get yourself involved and learn just how passionate, friendly and inspiring a fan group such as The Cove can be.
