Apologies Chris and readers.

It's time the FFA reconsidered its 'metrics'

Hi George – There have been a few stadiums touted for the honour. Even a rotational system proposed. Each area has its pros and cons. My personal opinion is that Parramatta Stadium is of sufficient size and geographically the most central location in Western Sydney. Offcourse it does come with its draw backs. Parking is a major issue.

West Sydney needs the people

As a further point, the cost for admission to bid for an A-league licence is approxiamtely $11,000. Offcourse there is a lot more to a bid then the admission fee, however if the fans could possibly get the money together for the admission fee – it would show some commitment, and possibly get the attention of the right people. Perhaps 110 people to commit $100 each.

As always some very good points and concerns raised. Firstly the idea of multiple teams in Western Sydney is offcourse more problematic then a single team. For this the FFA must change it’s current philosophies and direction and adopt such reccommendations as made in past reports. Such as a more cost affective league played in boutique smaller football stadiums. Interestingly as many would be aware there is pressure from the AFC for a league 2nd division.
I like the idea of fans contributing $50 to a trust to indicate support for the team. It will give the movement something concrete to go by. To even be a leveraging tool for those prospective investors. An organisation, a start at least.
And correct to including tradional footballing teams as Marconi and Sydney United in such a movement. In fact Marconi would be interested in such a move, I have spoken to an official from the club.
Any name I believe must have the word “West Sydney” or something to that affect. The name is worth millions, it creates an immediate identification with the area.
