    Received this email today.

    Dear schimch@capital hill,

    The Committee for the establishment of an A-League 4 Canberra football has announced that their plans for a future team in the A League are still alive and kicking.

    ‘The Committee has made several attempts to contact the FFA (Football Federation of Australia) with respect to understanding their plans for future teams in the A League. Unfortunately those attempts have received no response at this stage’, Chairman of the Committee, Ivan Slavich said.

    ‘The Committee is in the process of formally writing to the FFA to gauge their interest and communicate their understanding of Canberra’s future prospects.’

    The A-League 4 Canberra team has many compelling reasons for inclusion into the A-League including:

    20,000 pledged signatories for the team
    2,000 Foundation members (who have paid $200 each)
    A $2.5 million commitment from the ACT Government
    18,000 registered football players in the ACT
    Playing arrangements with both Canberra Stadium and the AIS
    Major sponsors signed on
    Major support from Canberramedia and other significant community support
    The only major world footballing nation where the national capital is NOT represented in the local league (and yet a foreign capital (NZ) is)

    The A-League 4 Canberra website has had some technical difficulties recently but will go “live” again later this week.

    With respect to the commitment to the Foundation members regarding their investment, all monies are being held in trust by Service One Members Banking and will be refunded to those members should no prospect for the team’s inclusion in the A-League be apparent by 30 December 2012.

    In the meantime, the A-League 4 Canberra Committee will do everything in its power to ensure that the FFA does not kick any own goals, by overlooking what is, according to many, an undisputable argument for inclusion into the national league by the National Capital.

    For further information, please contact Media Officer, Ron Forrester on 0412-402939

    Good to see he's giving the FFA a nudge clap

    Still doesn't sound like we've got new sponsors though
