Welcome to Football Today.

We are an online magazine that aims to be a voice for independent, insightful and informed opinion, analysis and commentary on football and the people in football.

We're not into 'group think'. We think, we analyse, we write, we share.

As football journalists, participants and fans, there are issues that are important to us, and about which we're passionate. And because they matter to us, we reckon they probably do to many of you also.

That may mean we don't have something to say every day, but when we do say something, it's worthwhile doing so.

Guiding Principles

  • To put readers first
  • No bias, no agendas, no spin
  • Respect for transparent and open debate and presentation of issues
  • Commitment to present facts and truth (and correct ourselves if we get it wrong)
  • Focus on issues and stories in football, not the day-to-day football news coverage.


For all editorial or other inquiries, please email us at ref@footballtoday.news.

Advertising and Partnerships

We have a reputation for high quality, independent insight into the many political and governance issues that impact football, globally and in Australia.

Our readers include the FFA, state member federations, A-League clubs, NPL clubs, players and officials, other journalists and, most importantly, fans.

We offer bespoke advertising and partner packages with unique access to this audience, that puts you in front of the people who shape, influence and hold strong and passionate opinions about football.
