A-League NEXT – Canberra – the case for expansion

A-League NEXT – Canberra – 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.

Second cab off the rank – Canberra!

Former ALeague4Canberra bid chief Ivan Slavich joined us to discuss the Capital’s readiness for an A-League team.

At the time of their last bid 5 years ago, Canberra had:

-Football No.1 for participation in 900,000 populated region ✅
-$5 million in capital raised ✅
-Government, AIS and community support of 2000 foundation members ✅
-Training facilities and staff ready to go ✅

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