The Return of the Winter Festival of Football
All the biggest names in world football will be live on Network 10 and Paramount+ across July and August as we gear up for the Winter Festival of Football.
There will be no such thing as a quiet off season this year with Network 10 and Paramount+ offering up a stacked Winter Festival of Football which will feature the very best from the coveted top five European leagues.
The Festival kicks off in Perth on Saturday, 15 July with a clash between West Ham United and Perth Glory and is soon followed by a historic clash as Postecoglou makes his Spurs' managerial debut against the Hammers in what is expected to be a sellout stadium in Perth.
It could not have been scripted any better for Postecoglou whose reign as the first Australian Premier League manager will begin down under. He can expect plenty of support as he takes the first steps to reigniting a Spurs side which has struggled of late.
All the action from the 2023 Winter Festival will continue with some cracking ties to look forward to with Man United vs Wrexham, PSG vs Inter Milan and Liverpool vs Bayern Munich just a few of the matches coming up on the stacked calendar.
You won’t want to miss a second of the action-packed festival. Watch West Ham vs Perth Glory and Spurs vs West Ham live and free on 10 BOLD plus catch the remaining 16 matches live and exclusive on Paramount+.

Australia Cup Playoffs in the Northern Territory
The Australia Cup 2023 Round of 32 matches will commence in August, but before we get stuck into those matches we have to decide the final two Isuzu UTE A-League clubs that are set to feature in this season's competition.
The two deciders will take place in Darwin in mid-July with Melbourne Victory set to face off against Newcastle Jets before Perth Glory meet Macarthur FC a day later.
It will be quite the fall from grace if Macarthur fail to qualify for the round of 32, given that they are the reigning champions.
It will be quite the quick turnaround for the Bulls' opponents, who are set to meet West Ham three days earlier in Perth before making the journey up for this match.
Meanwhile, this will be the first time that we get to see newly appointed Jets coach Robbie Stanton in action after his arrival from Sydney FC.
