Brisbane Roar will kick off the Foxtel National Youth League 2013/14 season with a home fixture against Melbourne Victory on Saturday, 26 October.

Goodwin Park in Yeronga will again be the Roar-s Foxtel National Youth League venue for all nine home fixtures throughout the 2013/14 campaign.

The Head of the Foxtel National Youth League, Damien de Bohun, said that the Foxtel National Youth League is a critical part of the elite player pathway into the Hyundai A-League and Australia-s National Teams.

“Since the Foxtel National Youth League competition commenced in 2008, many youth players have earned professional contracts in the Hyundai A-League or with overseas clubs,” he said.

This season is also the first that Foxtel has become the naming rights partner of the competition as part of their commitment to football development in Australia.

“Continuing on from Foxtel-s commitment to grassroots football in Australia we are pleased to be the naming rights sponsor of the 2013/2014 National Youth League,” Foxtel-s Executive Director - Sports & Foxtel Victoria Ben Buckley said.

“We at Foxtel believe participation in sport is a vital part of the Australian culture and we think we have an important role to play inspiring a new generation of football fans and players.”

The final round of the Foxtel National Youth League will be played on the weekend of 1-2 March 2014 With no Finals Series for the competition, the team that finishes at the top of the table after 18 rounds will be crowned the Foxtel National Youth League Premiers.
