We are committed to delivering a new professional football club for the region south of Sydney, covering the St George, Sutherland, and the South Coast football communities.
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.
