Sydney FC’s grand final win showed collective need often supplants the individual ego – and the league is thriving for it
The 2018-19 W-League season has been one of history makers and breakers. With its first marquee player (Sam Kerr), a new all-time goalscoring record set (Kerr, who else, on 68) and the highest grand final attendance (6,127), this season has continued to push the boundaries of what professional women’s football, collectively, can achieve in Australia.
While recent focus has been trained on the Matildas, Saturday’s final testified to the ability of on-field action to command the footballing public’s attention for at least 90 minutes. For those despairing of the capacity of off-field chaos to suck the oxygen away from the playing of the game itself, this has come as some relief.
