FFA supports Melbourne's move to big stadium

Football Federation Australia has given it’s full support to leading A-League club Melbourne Victory’s request to move six of their remaining eight 2006/07 matches to the 58,000-capacity Telstra Dome. “With the recent record crowd that we witnessed for the match against Sydney FC and with club memberships over the 10,000 mark, it is clear that the move Telstra Dome will provide an opportunity for more Victorians to support their club in the Hyundai A-League,” said FFA Head of Operations Matt Carroll. “It is also pleasing to see that the risk that the FFA took to stage and underwrite the round 2 match between Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC has proved fruitful, and is yet another ringing endorsement for the Hyundai A-League and the sport of football in Australia."
