“Since unbundling from Football Australia two years ago, we have already expanded the Liberty A-League Women to 11 teams (with one more to come next year) and extended the season to 20 rounds (22 next year) to ensure that we are creating the league of the future,” Danny Townsend, CEO of Australian Professional Leagues said.
“We are on the precipice of the most exciting period in the history of our game with the FIFA Women’s World Cup just months away, and we want to make sure that everyone in Australia has the opportunity to experience women’s football.
“The Dub Zone is an important part of that – it is an innovative show designed to showcase the best of the women’s game in a fresh format, with brand new and exciting talent.”
