Major media outlets across Australia continue to bash football and the A-League. A recent Herald Sun article with the headline “Soccer in crisis” continued this trend.
The A-League is finally commanding large chunks of real-estate on the pages of our nation’s newspapers, but sadly it’s for all the wrong reasons.
The Socceroo’s defeat of Uruguay in November of 2005 catapulted the sport into the pantheon of Australia’s greatest sporting moments, capturing the imagination of a nation and changing forever the profile of a sport once considered to be the basket case of this country’s footballing codes.
Everyone invested in making the A-League a success is looking for the ‘magic bullet’ that will translate the success of the national team and the enormous grassroots participation rates in football into bums on seats for the A-League.
