In eleven short years Australia's A-League has become one of the most competitive and enertaining sports in this country. It is producing great games, great goals, great players and the most committed fans of any sport. In 2016 any one of five teams could have won the premiership with only two rounds to play and six were realistic chances of playing off in the grand final. Ten of the game's best writers have come together to produce this companion to the A-League, taking a critical and entertaining look at the stories of the first eleven seasons as well as the future for the A-League. This is an essential book for all A-League fans and those who have only just discovered what Australia's national football league is all about. In this beautifully presented full colour book, readers will discover the stars, coaches, memorable games - a compendium of the best and the greatest.
