Personally it makes more sense to put teams in urban populations that are over 4.5 million compared to a Wollongong for example, which has 289 000. In the future I would love to see places like Wollongong, Canberra and Geelong represented but what our game needs is more people invested and to do so, expanding in Melbourne and Sydney make sense

Addressing football's Australian cultural problem

The states are very similar to aus, football has to compete against a number of codes for popularity in both countries.

football purists all hate the MLS conference style set-up, but the way the MLS has been able to rise from where it was in 2000 should provide inspiration for our battling league down here.

The idea behind football at the MCG is from a crowd number and atmosphere point of view. The MCG is the biggest stadium in terms of capacity and my contention was that if we fixed the cultural issues, then even the biggest stadiums in the country could be filled and have an atmosphere to behold.

In terms of participation, it seems like the fact is too good to be true, but I assure you that it’s more fact than fiction
