    Canberra could have a team in an expanded A-League competition as soon as next season, Football Federation Australia chairman Frank Lowy has revealed.

    In an exclusive interview with Fox Sports FC, Lowy said that Canberra's bid met a lot of the requirements for an A-League licence and FFA would look to get the club operating in time for the start of the 2012-2013 season.



    Lowy also revealed that he still held out some hope for Gold Coast United to continue playing in the national league after meetings were held with potential investors last week.

    Canberra last featured in a national football competition in 2001, when Canberra Cosmos played in the now-defunct National Soccer League (NSL).

    Watch Mark Bosnich's full interview with FFA chairman Frank Lowy on Fox Sports FC, from 8.30pm (EDT) tonight on Fox Sports 1HD.
