Im still a bit concerned about getting into bed with soccer in this country.

I’m not convinced Australia can sustain a national domestic league.

I think we will eventually, but it may have to coincide with the downfall of contact sports.

Will also be interesting to see how they handle the different ethnic elements. I get the feeling the second tier will be far more hardcore.

As much as I like the Jets having our own nsw cup team playing out of shark park is another reason to upgrade us. Another 6-8 game days help

Worth having a look at it. Long-term it could be a useful bargaining chip with the NRL.
Extra use of Shark Park =
extra ground rental
extra patronage of leagues club
extra use by non NRL fans in local community
extra reason for government assistance to upgrade

If it doesn't work out, it's now out there that we're willing to have a soccer team as a tenant

Football Australia welcomes NSD interest from Cronulla Sharks ESPN Australia

More...


Football Australia CEO James Johnson says he is enthusiastic about the "exciting" prospect of the NRL's Cronulla Sharks investing in a club in his organisation's new national second tier, welcoming any investment that is willing to buy into the competition's "DNA."

....

"It was one name that brought a smile to my face when I saw it," Johnson said on Tuesday. "It caught me off guard. I had a pretty good feel for most of the clubs, but that was a surprise to me. I'm pretty excited and I think we should be welcoming this.

But ONLY, if we get good funding (government, private or otherwise) and it MAKES and NOT LOSES us money!
Can't see the Government giving much funding to something like this.

Also no chance you make money out of this unless they eventually make it to the A League. Even then, don't think many A League clubs are profitable.

Not to mention Sutherland Sharks FC are a bit of a basket case

Hadn't even thought of that... god I hope not. Soccer's actually a pretty obnoxious sport from an organisation/parent perspective to be involved in, even from a young age.

And not cheap. Glad my 7 year old missed our on SAP/Dev. $1,000 a season is ****ing ridiculous at that age.

look anything that gets more patronage at the ground, to show how badly it needs some of that sweet sweet government cash is good imo

they may not even get a gig in the new comp, so just wait n see i guess
