It’s down to Sydney FC and Melbourne City in the season decider, with the A-League grand final set to kick off this Sunday, August 30 at 6:30pm AEST. Here, we’ll let you know how to watch the final live.

After a shaky restart to the season, current champions Sydney FC were back in form when they knocked Perth Glory out of finals contention with a 2-0 win in the semi-final.

That victory means the Sydney side are now chasing down their fifth championship – if they can pull it off, they’ll be the first club to do so.
