The 2007 A-League Grand Final took place at Telstra Dome in Melbourne, Australia, on February 18, 2007. The match was contested by premiers Melbourne Victory and Adelaide United. Melbourne prevailed 6-0 in the equal greatest win in A-League history, and the greatest ever deficit in any Australian soccer Grand Final, including the old NSL.

Archie Thompson scored five goals, just the sixth ever A-League hat-trick and the most goal by an individual in any A-League match. This performance earned him the Joe Marston Medal.
