Honours[change | change source]

In most Australian sports, the term "Premiership" or "Premier" describes the club that won the knockout playoffs that follow the regular season, known in Australia as a "Finals Series". A-League Men instead uses "Champions" to describe this club. The term "Premier" instead describes the club that finished first in the regular-season standings (which the country's other football codes call "Minor Premiers").
