A-League set for 32 games in 36 days in proposed restart plan


Football Federation Australia has reportedly proposed a rapid 32 matches in 36 days to complete the 2019-20 A-League season.

The remaining matches will commence on July 18 and culminate in the grand final on August 22, according to a report in The Daily Telegraph. 

All matches would be played in a 'single hub', either in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane. 

However, host broadcaster Fox Sports needs to sign off on the plan and both Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) and the clubs would have to come to a pay agreement for the players. 

Further hurdles include agreements around expiring contracts - more than 100 players are free agents from June 1 - and health and hygiene measures. 

It is unlikely that fans will be able to attend any of these matches, although that could change if government restrictions and guidelines are eased.
