Following the completion of the Hyundai A-League 2019/20 Season, Football Federation Australia (FFA) looks forward to another exciting Hyundai A-League Finals Series.

Whilst focusing on the next 9 days it was a good opportunity to also reflect on the record numbers of digital fan engagements in the Hyundai A-League for this Season.

FFA Head of Leagues, Greg O’Rourke, believes that these digital fan engagement numbers are a strong indicator of the health of the Hyundai A-League and the commitment of our loyal fans.

“Year on year, the Hyundai A-League has seen a 30% growth in digital followers and a 15% increase in engagements also over that time” said O’Rourke.
