How diverse is your A-League club?

-

Diversity is often talked about and embraced in Australia, similarly, in the A-League. Foreign imports in the football scene here are usually the ones responsible for delivering magical moments in games.

The Football Sack’s Ngau Kai Yan crunched the numbers, to reveal how many nationalities your club has employed in its A-League history, and have they relied heavily on a certain nationality to consistently deliver?

Brisbane Roar takes the crown with a grand total of 23 foreign nationalities employed, followed by Melbourne Victory with 22, and then Sydney FC with 21.

The national average is 19 players (rounded up).

Western Sydney Wanderers stands out as a massive outlier, having only employed 12 foreign nationalities.
