Gold Coast United, along with the now defunct North Queensland Fury, were granted permission to enter the A-League in the 2009/10 season. Supported by a wealthy owner in Clive Palmer, the club has been a success on the field, making the finals in consecutive years. However, concerns have been raised over the future of the club following poor crowd attendances, and a major exodus of Gold Coast’s player group. Reports that Palmer would withdraw his financial support before the 2011/12 season have not yet come to fruition.
