Southern Expansion has a vision to become the leading football club in Australia. We will support and strengthen the Southern region to become the country’s premier football zone, represent the Southern community with utmost pride and take this great game forward in Australia on and off the field.

Our bid is backed and supported by our three local football associations, St George, Sutherland and South Coast, as well as a legion of local fans, players, government and community groups. We are also financially supported by the Cyan Stone Group.
The group’s bid for A-League and W-League licences is being driven by a Steering Group spearheaded by former NSW Premier, the Hon. Morris Iemma, former Socceroo and well-known champion of the game, Craig Foster, and the highly-regarded former Chief Executive of the NSW PCYC Chris Gardiner.
