26 October 2023
Isuzu UTE Australia (IUA), is revving up for an exhilarating new season of the Isuzu UTE A-League Men's and the Liberty A-League Women’s competition, with IUA marking the continuation of the steadfast partnership as it enters its third year of support of the Australian Professional Leagues.
The anticipation for the 2023-24 A-Leagues season is set to reach new heights, fuelled by the electrifying energy generated during the FIFA Women's World Cup in Australia and the unwavering support of passionate Matildas fans. The world witnessed the incredible talent and dedication of our women's national team, and now, that same enthusiasm is igniting our domestic football leagues, promising an unforgettable season filled with excitement, talent, and inspiration.
During the inaugural match of the Liberty A-League Women's season on Saturday the 14th October, a crowd of 11,471 spectators gathered at Allianz Stadium to witness Cortnee Vine's triumphant return, following her remarkable performance in the FIFA Women's World Cup that elevated her to national hero status. This attendance figure surpassed the record previously set during the 2022-23 Grand Final.
Additionally, enthusiasm for the Isuzu UTE A-League Men’s competition has been stoked by the unforgettable grand final of the 2022-23 season, etching itself into the history books with a record breaking 6-1 grand final win as the Central Coast Mariners defeated Melbourne City. The season kicked off on the 20th of October with an electrifying start, marked by a significant upset where the reigning champions, the Central Coast Mariners, unexpectedly fell to Adelaide United. This surprising result sets the stage for what is sure to be an exciting and unpredictable season to come.
As the official automotive partner for both the men's and women's league, IUA reaffirms its dedication to supporting and nurturing football talent in the country. This partnership has long been a beacon of excellence and excitement in Australian sports culture.
