  1. The 2019/20 A-League Award winners are listed as "No award given", however they were all awarded on 10 September A-League Goalkeeper of the Year - Andrew Redmayne (Sydney FC) A-League Golden Boot - Jamie Maclaren (Melbourne City, 22 goals), 2nd Adam Le Fondre (Sydney FC, 20 goals), 3rd Besart Berisha (Western United, 19 goals) A-League Manager of the Year - Erick Mombaerts (Melbourne City) A-League Player of the Year - Alessandro Diamanti (Western United), 2nd Milos Ninkovic (Sydney FC), 3rd Jamie Maclaren (Melbourne City) A-League Young Player of the Year - Riley McGree (Adelaide
  2. Substitution rules for the 2020/21 A-League season will likely continue following the temporary amendments to Law 3, allowing for five substitutions to be used from three substitution opportunities during a match (excluding half time).

By example, here is a player who I gave a new contract to specifically to test this valued at A$90k pa, and then upon turning 21 on 04/01/2021, his contract reduced down to A$64k pa the following day.
