A-League postponed, NSL to run in its place

MarkovskiAustralian sporting circles were rocked this afternoon when it was announced that the 2015/16 A-League season would be postponed indefinitely, and the NSL would be revived in its place.

“With no end in sight to collective bargaining negotiations, we’ve decided to ditch the whole bloody thing and bring back the NSL,” said FFA chief David Gallop.

“Furthermore, NSL teams will be able to compete under their ‘ethnic’ names. And we’ll be welcoming national and political flags, even oversize ones, to matches.”

Mr Gallop was vague on which NSL clubs would take part.

“Obviously we want all the big teams back, like Morwell Falcons and Canberra Cosmos. Basically any team John Markovski played for.”

SBS will broadcast one game per round, on a Sunday afternoon from a suburban ground. Andy Paschalidis will host the coverage. Matches will be broadcast in colour.
