    Tasmania Bid Overview

    Post by Joey47 on Fri May 08, 2009 6:51 am

    Tasmania

    This bid has made some good progress over the last few months but still seem a wee bit too far from the securing that highly competitive chase for the 12th spot.

    The main story of the bid is the billionaire backer they have: the 77th richest man in the world... but will that be enough to get them across the line?

    I don't think so.

    Money isn't everything in the race for that 12th A-League spot. Haver they gone out and looked for support? NO.

    And probavly the biggest thing stopping them getting and A-league team is the Stadium, just like South Coast.

    They have there options... Bellerive Oval, Aurora Oval, North Hobart oval, KGV Oval, Devonport Oval.

    But do you see the key words there. OVAL. These are not suitable grounds for viewing and are old, terrible stadiums. All are Cricket or AFL grounds.

    Despite, all the people saying Tasmania would be great for the league, it would be too much of a risk: Support wise, Stadium wise and sponsor wise.

    Sorry but not this time. Not until you have a great football stadium and good support.

    Feel Free to add onto this from your knowledge about the Tasmania bid.

    They had a press release, Tasmani United, and stated that they are moreconfident of securing the 13th or 14th licence.... Ben buckley has stated to them that we are going to go to 14 teams but it is a matter of when.

    I would like to see Tasmania, South Coast and Western Sydney kick start the A2. I think a 12 team top flight is good enough.

    From what i have read Tasmania are focussing on the 14th spot- and rightly so. They should build up on their bid and let the advanced ones of Canberra and Western Sydney past them.

    Tassie Bid To Host Q&A

    TASMANIA'S A-League bid will use the presence of Melbourne Victory and Adelaide United in Launceston on Sunday to further push its case for entry.

    Tasmania's bid recently received the results of an independent report which recommended a continued push for an A-League team and that the state could support such a side.

    Existing fans of the Tasmania United bid and potential new fans (and backers) are invited to attend a Q&A session with Tassie taskforce member Martyn Wells ahead of kick-off on Sunday.

    The event is taking place at the Gunners Arms Bar and Bistro in Lawrence Street from 11.30am.

    The match between Melbourne and Adelaide United kicks off at Aurora Stadium at 1pm.

    it would be quite an achievement if Tasmania had enough to support an A-league team.

    JUST days after hosting its traditional A-League pre-season match, Tasmania faces two significant fixtures in the push for its own team.
    On Wednesday, Tasmania United chairman John McGirr will fly to Sydney to discuss the franchise bid progress with Football Federation Australia commercial manager John Sullivan.

    The following week, bid proponents will also meet potential investors in Hobart.

    "The next couple of weeks are going to be crucial," Mr McGirr said yesterday as he watched last season's grand finalists Melbourne Victory and Adelaide United clash at Aurora Stadium.

    "We requested a meeting with FFA to discuss the feasibility study into our bid and get a feeling of how realistic it's going to be to get a licence."

    An independent assessment concluded Tasmania was well- placed to host a team, playing home games at Aurora Stadium and Bellerive, but the bid faces plenty of competition to join the national league.

    The A-League expands from eight to 10 teams this season, with the inclusion of Gold Coast United and North Queensland Fury, and while FFA would like to increase that to 12, Canberra, western Sydney and southern NSW are also pushing for inclusion.

    About 1600 fans have shown their support for the push on the website. The feasibility study identified good community and business support while positive feedback has also come from media, broadcasters and existing A-League clubs.

    The value to the Tasmanian economy of hosting 13 matches a year has been estimated at $10 million and proponents say they would be keen to schedule games around existing events, such as hosting Sydney at Bellerive around the conclusion of the Sydney-Hobart yacht race.

    Victory fans and staff yesterday welcomed Tasmania's inclusion in the competition.

    "This is a good away trip for us so we want a team here as much as you," said Marcel Gachon, of Nunawading.

    Victory coach Ernie Merrick added: "I think it would be terrific if Tasmania could get a club. I would like that to happen before they get an AFL team. We got a team in the Gold Coast before them and they keep copying everything we do."
