North Queensland Fury launched

North Queensland Fury

The expansion of the A-League to ten teams was confirmed today with the official naming of the North Queensland Fury.

Football Federation Australia CEO Ben Buckley said that this announcement is more good news for the A-League.

“Our strategy is to invest in the growth of the sport, and expansion of the Hyundai A-League into North Queensland is right for football.

“We know that there are many people who are looking forward to the Hyundai A-League being part of the North Queensland sporting landscape.

“From Gladstone to the Cape, and from Rocky to Boulia and Mt Isa, the North Queensland Fury is a team for all proud locals.” Buckley said.

One must suspect that there will be plenty of fury as a result of yet another disaster of a nickname for an A-League club.
