The Soc­ceroos con­tinue their World Cup prepa­ra­tions with two matches against Nor­way (March 24) and Columbia (March 28), with play­ers out to im­press new coach Bert Van Mar­wijk as the team’s fi­nal World Cup squad be­gins to take shape.

The Matil­das face Thai­land in an in­ter­na­tional friendly in Perth on March 26. The team, fea­tur­ing su­per­star Sam Kerr, will be gun­ning to con­tinue their im­pres­sive form with a win on home soil.

The Hyundai A-League reaches its crescendo through­out Fe­bru­ary and March, as the home and away fix­tures for sea­son 2017/18 con­clude. With a num­ber of teams vy­ing for a po­si­tion in the top six, ev­ery match is a must win.

The month fea­tures a num­ber of block­buster con­tests, be­gin­ning with reign­ing champions, Syd­ney FC, at home to Bris­bane Roar in a prime­time clash on March 17.

The ac­tion con­tin­ues as Western Syd­ney visit Mel­bourne to play City (March 24) and Vic­tory (March 31) with both matches set to have a big im­pact on the fi­nal make-up of the lad­der.

The jam packed month is capped off with Asian Champions League football - when Syd­ney FC travel to play Su­won (3 April) and Mel­bourne Vic­tory play Ul­san Hyundai (4 April) - in match day five of the tour­na­ment’s group stages.

FOX SPORTS will show ev­ery game through­out the month LIVE, in HD and with no-ad breaks dur­ing play.
