If you haven't yet been to an A-League match, this weekend might be the time to do so - because there's something in store for someone.

The A-League is expecting to reach the 10 million mark in this round of games and the number 10 million through the turnstiles will win the 'Ultimate Grand Final Experience' of return flights for two, accommodation and VIP tickets to the 2013 A-League Grand Final in April.

FFA CEO, David Gallop, said it was a "fantastic achievement" for the A-League which kicked off in 2005 after 27 years of the former national soccer league ended 18 months beforehand. 

Mr Gallop said that, up to this weekend, 9,940,912 fans had attended 856 games.

"The heroes of this story are the fans who give football its unique atmosphere with their passionate and vocal support," said Mr Gallop. "I thank all dedicated fans who have walked through the turnstiles over the past eight seasons."

Details of the matches this weekend, with local kick-off times:


  • Friday 30 November: Melbourne Victory v Perth Glory, AAMI Park, Melbourne, 7.30pm
  • Saturday 1 December: Central Coast Mariners v Adelaide United, Bluetongue Stadium, 5.30pm
  • Saturday 1 December:  Brisbane Roar v Newcastle Jets, Suncorp Stadium, 6.45pm
  • Sunday 2 December: Wellington Phoenix v Western Sydney Wanderers, Westpac Stadium, Wellington, 4.30pm 
  • Sunday 2 December: Sydney FC v Melbourne Heart, Allianz Stadium, 5.00pm

Even if you miss out on being number 10 million, enjoy the afternoon or evening out with the family with some interesting contests. In partiuclar, look out for 2 v 1 at Bluetongue Stadium on Saturday and last v third last at Allianz Stadium on Sunday - with Sydney FC having appointed a new coach on Thursday.

Since the A-League was established, five clubs have won the competition after the home-and-away season and four different clubs have won the Grand Final.

Tickets can be purchased from Ticketek or at the ground starting at $2.50 for children and $25 for adults.

And if you can't go in person, you can catch games live on FOX Sports or ABC Grandstand radio.
