ABC’s new Football mag to name Team and Player of the Decade

ABC Football, edited by ABC Grandstand presenter Francis Leach and written by some of Australia’s best sports journalists, will preview the A-League season, the Asian Cup and W-League, and look at the prospects of the Socceroos following their exploits in Brazil.

The book-quality publication will also make a special announcement: the A-League Team of the Decade and Player of the Decade.

To mark the 10th A-League season, Australia’s football fans have been voting for their favourite all-time A-League players.

Poll results, analysis and an interview with the Player of the Decade will all feature exclusively in ABC Football.

FFA Head of Corporate Affairs and Communications, Kyle Patterson, says the FFA and ABC make a great team.

"We have a fantastic relationship with the ABC, who are our TV broadcast partner for the Westfield Matildas and the Westfield W-League as well as a radio broadcast partner for the Hyundai A-League,” Patterson says.

“This magazine underlines this ongoing relationship and provides fans with a quality publication for the upcoming seasons.”

Content will include:

  • A-League Team and Player of the Year 
  • In-depth A-League features 
  • Club pages featuring stats, players and more 
  • 2014 A-League fixture list 
  • Fanstand: supporters have their say 
  • Asian Cup preview 
  • The Socceroos: a new era 
  • W-League season preview 
  • The rise of Asian football and much more…

Liz White, Head of Publishing and Licensing, ABC Commercial, believes the new magazine will be a huge success.

“We’re delighted to be launching ABC Football magazine this year,” White says. “After the excitement of the World Cup finals in Brazil and with the anticipation of a new A-League season ahead, football will be a real focus for Australians.

“We’re looking forward to bringing readers everything they need to know about the A-League season ahead and with partners in ABC Grandstand and Football Federation Australia I think we have a winning team.”

Perfect bound, and printed on high-quality stock, ABC Football is a book-quality publication that will stay in top shape all season long and beyond.
