A-League NEXT – Gold Coast – the case for expansion

A-League NEXT – Gold Coast – the case for expansion


Expansion. An issue that can rouse any Australian football fan into hours of debate, and the team at the Daily Football Show thought we’d facilitate this debate. 

Over the next couple of months, each Wednesday the Daily Football Show team led by Mark van Aken and Adrian Houghton will take a look at an A-League expansion candidate from regions across Australia and New Zealand.

The series, aptly titled ‘A-League NEXT’ will take you from places like Geelong, South Melbourne and Wollongong, to the tropic heights of North Queensland and Ipswich, and across the ditch to Auckland. Every possible case to be heard, we’ll have it covered.

Third cab off the rank – Gold Coast!

Ben Mannion of Gold Coast City FC (formerly Palm Beach S.C) chats with the boys about the club, it’s aspirations in the QLD NPL and beyond for the A-League.

Have a listen and decide for yourself if they’re worthy for the A-League:
