The 2012–13 A-League was the eighth season of the Australian A-League football competition since its establishment in 2004. The 2012–13 season saw the introduction of a new Western Sydney-based team, the return of Newcastle Jets FC after their A-League license was returned by FFA, and the end of Gold Coast United after they were removed from the competition at the end of the previous season.[1][2][3] This season was also the last A-League season to be broadcast exclusively on paid television, after SBS obtained the rights to a live Friday night game each week of the A-League season, and all A-League finals games on a one hour delay, on a $160 million four-year broadcast deal, effective from the 2013–14 A-League season onwards.[4][5]

Finals series[edit]

In its eighth season the A-League has adopted a new knock-out format for the finals with six teams competing over a three-week series climaxing in the decider. As a result, the play-offs have been reduced from four to three weeks and the top two teams no longer receive a double chance. Instead they will get the opening week of the final series off and will only need to win one game to make the grand final.
