News Limited has reported that despite a drop in the Roars crowds, a second Brisbane team is on the cards under the FFA’s newly released “whole of football’ plan.
“The Roar have got a solid foundation but there’s still growth that they need to achieve for their own business model and ours,” Gallop told The Courier-Mail. “But they will recognise the value of the derby down the track. You need to be cautious about expansion. Every code in the country has probably made mistakes. Having said that, there will be a point where we need to take that leap of faith and continue to grow our competition. Ultimately 10 teams isn’t where we want to be.”
