Brisbane Roar future living on a knife-edge

The FFA has given Brisbane Roar owners Bakrie Group a weeks extension ‘to rectify the Brisbane Roar’s situation’.

The Indonesian owners have failed to present their future plans for Brisbane Roar. Brisbane Roar fans it must feel like they are constantly banging their heads against a wall over an over again.

Roar are the only side to win back to back Hyundai A-League Grand Finals, and despite all their in-house troubles, they managed to finish third and reach the semi-finals.

Bakrie groups failure to comply to the FFA’s obligations has caused a major drop-off in fans at home games.

The only reason why the Bakrie group held their license last season, was because they agreed to the FFA’s financial demands.

On the flip-side, former CEO David Pourre left the club due to Bakries absence of care towards the direction of Brisbane Roar.

The ramifications could be huge for Brisbane, with talks that manager John Aloisi could walk away from the club due to the lack of progress in the matter.

The only FFA owned club is Newcastle Jets, although a foreign buyer looks inevitable with Chinese Businessman Martin Lee close to wrapping up a deal.

Where to next for Brisbane Roar? Could the fans possibly raise money to buy the club like an AFC Wimbledon?

The fate of Brisbane Roar FC could be decided in the next seven days.
