A-League NEXT – Far North Queensland – the case for expansion

A-League NEXT – Far North Queensland – the case for expansion


Expansion. An issue that can rouse any Australian football fan into hours of debate, and the team at the Daily Football Show thought we’d facilitate this debate. 

Over the next couple of months, each Wednesday the Daily Football Show team led by Mark van Aken and Adrian Houghton will take a look at an A-League expansion candidate from regions across Australia and New Zealand.

The series, aptly titled ‘A-League NEXT’ will take you from places like Geelong, South Melbourne and Wollongong, to the tropic heights of North Queensland and Ipswich, and across the ditch to Auckland. Every possible case to be heard, we’ll have it covered.

Fourth cab off the rank – Far North Queensland!

Northern Fury Chairman Rabieh Kraymen joins the boys to discuss the club’s unfortunate past, their thoughts on expansion for the immediate future and whether the region can handle another crack at an A-League license.

In promising news, Kraymen spoke of a NYL and a W-League side as a priority, with an A-League side the ultimate goal.

Have a listen and decide for yourself if they’re worthy for the A-League:
