Head of the A-League Greg O'Rourke has confirmed the competition is set to have its regular season cut from 27 to 26 games.

Bleh, I would prefer more games than less.

Well a 14 team competition where every team players each other thrice would result in a 39 game long season, so the move makes sense imo.

Might work out ok because we're unlikely to get 3 games with Melbourne and Sydney teams. 3 games against Newcastle and CCM is ideal.

GOR was saying that we will have to put up with an unbalanced draw until we hit 14 teams, so probably a decade knowing how slow things change.

I've mentioned this before in the independent A-league threads. Fox has already put the NLWG on notice that they can't expect that the next TV deal will be better than the current one, and that in fact, there's every chance that it'll be a worse one.

Damn I love everything about these videos each year. Also our own Nix photographer Photomac (Cam) is in the video at 41sec when Krishna goes over the boards

I'm an optimistic pessimist. 

I'm positive things will go wrong.

The season will be 143 games, so I assume there will be a round with 3 games in it around ACL time.

See, they should have allowed 2 teams in at a time and saved themselves a whole lot of headaches. Too simple I guess.

We are staying at 26 games until there is 14 teams.

Isn't there set criteria around how many games a season must have in relation to ACL spots? 

I think if the A-League has any fewer rounds/games then they'll lose a spot. 

NB: This may not be correct and completely fabricated.

So how does that work?

The phone play each team twice = 20 games.

Then play 6 other teams?

A league needs a minimum of 27 games to qualify for the ACL, this includes Cup games & Final Series. So 26 games & 1 FFA Cup game and your sorted.
