5:56 pm on 1 July 2013

A-League football players have traded a greater share of the pie for increased financial security after a deal was struck to extend the current contract for a further two seasons.

The new Collective Bargaining Agreement, which expires in June 2015, will trigger only a slight change in the salary cap for each club, which is raised to two and a half million Australian dollars.

The minimum wage also received a minor boost, up from $48,000 Australian to $50,000 a season.
