Origins[ edit ] A national round-robin tournament existed in various forms prior to the formation of the A-League, with the most notable being the National Soccer League NSL.
The competition start date was set for August Three bids were received from Melbourne, two each from Sydney and Brisbane, one from each of the remaining preferred cities and a bid from the New South Wales Central Coast city of Gosford.
Over the next three months, each bid was reviewed and on 1 Novemberthe eight successful bidders and the major sponsor were revealed, for what would be known as the Hyundai A-League, with the Hyundai Motor Company unveiled as the official naming rights sponsor for the league.
Each club was given a five-year exclusivity deal in its own market as part of the league's "one-city, one-team" policy.
This was intended to allow clubs to grow and develop an identity in their respective region without local competition. On 12 JuneMelbourne Heart was awarded a licence to join the —11 season.
The competition consists of 27 rounds, with each team playing every other team three times. The teams allotted two home matches against an opponent in one season are allotted one home match against that opponent in the following season.
Each match sees the winning team awarded three competition points, with one point each for a draw. The position of each team is determined by the highest number of points accumulated during the regular season. If two or more teams are level on points, the following criteria are applied in order until one of the teams can be determined as the higher ranked: The top six clubs at the conclusion of the Regular Season progress to the Finals Series.
The Finals Series consists of 6 teams who are placed by rank, as determined at the end of the regular season. The Finals Series runs over three weeks, with all games being sudden death, leading to a sudden-death Grand Final to decide the overall A-League competition.
The first and second placed teams at the conclusion of the Regular Season are rewarded with a bye in the first week of the Finals Series and the advantage of hosting each of their semi-finals in the second week of the Finals Series.
Further details can be found under the A-League Competition Rules While deciding the A-League competition with a Finals Series is not consistent with overseas football competitions, it is consistent with the other major football codes in Australia and is also consistent with the A-League's predecessor, the National Soccer League NSL.
Of the two Grand Finalists, the team that finished higher on the ladder at the conclusion of the Regular Season hosts the Grand Final.
The only exception to this is if the FFA deems that team's home ground to be an inappropriate.At its annual awards dinner, held at the MIT Media Lab on May 26, the New England Motor Press Association honored individuals for their outstanding contributions to the automotive industry and awarded the winners of the NEMPA Ragtop Awards and Winter Vehicle Awards.
