Place a bet on the footballing frenzy sweeping Australia

From Peter Johnson.
February 2017.

In case you haven't heard, the A-League is one of the top soccer leagues in the world and a fantastic betting opportunity for Aussies. Customers can get involved with this awesome footballing frenzy by cashing in on free bets, enhanced odds offers and other promotions and bonuses, all from the leading Australian bookmakers.

For the novices among you, let us take a moment to tell you a bit about A-League so you can place your wagers knowing that you have done at least a bit of research before taking advantage of the attractive betting offers.

The A-League is Australia's number one, most popular soccer football competition and the competing teams are at the top of their game in the Australian league system. Originally known as the National Soccer League, it's story started in 1977 shortly after Australia qualified for the 1974 FIFA World Cup. These humble beginnings grew and grew and today, the A-League is a fast paced, high adrenaline, big money league with millions of fans turning up or tuning in for every game.

With the season running from October through until May each year, spectators and fans have a packed seven months of fixtures to keep them entertained. So, what is it about this league that has fans hooked?

The A-League is comprised of nine Aussie teams, and one New Zealand team and the current leaders are the formidable Sydney FC. Coached by the Australian powerhouse, Graham Arnold who is himself an ex-A-League striker, he has helped fuel their rise to the top of the table this season. As a team, Sydney FC have sailed to glory in the A-League no fewer than two times, as well as being the only A-League club to scoop a win at the OFC Champions League as well. The team puts its success down to a mix of high profile international players such as Alessandro Del Piero and Dwight Yorke, as well as being known for their determination and incredibly supportive fan base. If you are looking for a tip for this year's winners, they could well be worth a bet.

Top scorers of the 16/17 season so far include Albanian Besart Berisha playing for Melbourne Victory who has scored an impressive 16 goals so far, closely followed by Argentinian Bruno Fornaroli playing for rivals Melbourne city with 13 goals this season. With several months left to go, the competition is sure to hot up as stakes get higher, and the pressure intensifies. If you are looking to place a bet on some hi-octane sporting entertainment, then this is most definitely the league for you.

Whether you are a novice or a seasoned A-League supporter, take it from us that checking out the odds on offer and placing a couple of bets on this world-class competition will give you every chance of being a winner as well!
