A-League Ladder 2018/19

The A-League Ladder lists the ten professional soccer clubs in the annual Hyundai A-League Premiership ranked from 1 – 10 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.
