How to watch A League overseas
Chris, a UK-born media connoisseur, is an expert in watching international TV. Known as "The Global Screen Wanderer", he has travelled extensively across the globe with long stints away from home. With over 10 years of experience he has become the go-to guru for streaming content from home and abroad.
If you’re an Aussie football fan but you’re outside the country then your options for watching the A League matches are really limited.
Unlike some of the more popular leagues like the EPL or La Liga, it’s really difficult to find good quality streams of the A League games.
In this guide I’ll be showing you the best and most reliable way to watch A League overseas outside Australia. Best of all it doesn’t involve heading to any of those sketchy websites that leave you desperately trying to close those questionable porn pop-ups.
For this you’ll need just a few minutes of your time and a completely beginner-friendly app called a ‘VPN’. So let’s find out how you can watch A League overseas.
Where can I watch A-League
The best way to watch A League matches without paying is on the TenPlay website.
Although they don’t show all the games they do show a good selection of the best which means you can watch for free without paying a cent.
You’ll need a VPN app to unblock the TenPlay website and watch A League overseas so let’s find out where you can get one of those.
If you’ve got a subscription to a service that shows the rest of the games like Fox Sports, Telstra or the MyFootball Live app you can use the same VPN to unblock these too and watch outside Australia.
Where to get a VPN app
VPN apps are sold by a whole host of different companies and will set you back a couple of dollars per month.
Not all work with TenPlay and if you’re like me you haven’t got hours to be searching through 100’s.
The good news for you is I’ve tested them for you to save you the trouble. My recommendation is to sign up for ExpressVPN although there are some other good choices that’ll let you watch the football action in the country you’re in.
If you’ve got a few minutes to check out a few different choices then consider these:
- ExpressVPN – Recommended
- CyberGhost VPN

Don’t forget if you’ve got a subscription to another service showing the games that aren’t on TenPlay then you can also use the VPN to unblock those too.
