Brisbane Roar

Brisbane RoarThe Brisbane Roar are the defending champions of the A-League. Originally known as Queensland Roar, they were forced to change their name following the introduction of the North Queensland Fury and Gold Coast United to the A-League. Despite making back-to-back preliminary finals in 2007/08 and 2008/09, a transitional period under new manager Ange Postecoglou saw the team slip to ninth by the end of 2009/10. However, last season brought about a change in fortune as the club went on the greatest undefeated streak in Australian football history. Following their dramatic penalty-shootout victory over the Central Coast Mariners in the Grand Final, the club extended their unbeaten run to a record 28 matches, and went onto defeat Perth Glory in the 2011/12 Grand Final for consecutive Championship victories.

The Roar are now guided by former Gold Coast coach Mike Mulvey, who led them to the 2013/14 title with a 2-1 victory over the Western Sydney Wanderers in the grand final. As a result of their success in the 2013-14 season the Roar qualified for the 2015 AFC Champions League group stage.
