A-League Ladder 2019/20

The 2019-20 A-League season is currently suspended as of March 24, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic 

The A-League Ladder lists the 11 professional soccer clubs in the annual Hyundai A-League Premiership ranked from 1 – 11 based on their current competition points. A-League teams are awarded three points for a win and one point each for a draw, which is a far more common occurrence in soccer than in other football codes like the NRL or AFL.

When clubs have the same amount of competition points their standings on the A-League ladder is determined by goals for and against to determine a clear ranking order. The standings determine the teams that continue onto the A-League finals after the 27 rounds of the regular season.

The team that finishes top of the A-League standings at the end of this season are known as the season’s Premiers. The top six teams on the table face off across a three-week finals series leading up to the A-League Grand Final to determine the season’s Champions who receive the famous ‘toilet seat’ trophy.

Soccer betting is available on where teams in the A-League will finish on the ladder such as ‘To Finish Bottom’, ‘Top Six Finish’, ‘Top Victorian Team’ and ‘Top NSW Team’. Futures A-League odds on the League Champions are also open throughout the season.

Three-time A-League Premiers Melbourne Victory (2007, 2009, 2015, 2018) have finished the highest in the A-League standings more than any other club, and are also four-time A-League Champions (2007, 2007, 2015 and 2018). Sydney FC (2006, 2010, 2017, 2019) became the equal most successful A-League team in history along with Melbourne Victory with their fourth success in the 2019 A-League Grand Final.

Where clubs sit on the A-League table has an impact on the round-by-round football betting odds on the competition as well as all-in markets on the A-League Grand Final. Overall A-League Winner markets are usually led by those teams highest up the ladder during the season.
