A-League finals series to stay

The A-League finals format isn't changing anytime soon after boss David Gallop backed the current format.

There has been calls for the A-League to scrap the finals series and have a first past the post format like other competitions around the world including the English Premier League.

Gallop pointed out that strong crowds and ratings throughout the finals series were evidence that the current format was popular.

"I think football and Australian sport gets behind a finals series and we saw that with the numbers that were produced, crowds and ratings through this finals series," Gallop said.

"People turned out in record numbers and I think that underlines they are part of football and they are a part of Australian sport."
