When is the A-League Grand Final for 2022?

The A-League competition for 2022 is still very much underway, having kicked off on November 19, 2021. 

The Grand Final is slated for May 28, 2022, at AAMI Park. This is just three days after the A-League All Stars match will see players go up against FC Barcelona.

How can I watch each of the A-league finals matches?

If you’d like to attend in the flesh, tickets are on sale for upcoming games.

Under a new(ish) deal, Paramount+ has become the home of A-League games in Australia, so this is where you’ll find most games aired. Subscriptions to Paramount+ are $8.99 per month, but you can also get a 7-day free trial if you like.

However, for those who prefer free-to-air, certain A-League games are aired for free on Channel 10 and 10 Play On Demand, too.
